What to Expect
Most of the routine procedures that we perform are outpatient procedures. We prioritize performing swift surgeries for our patients to minimize time under anesthesia and ensure a safe and quick recovery at home. Check-in for outpatient procedures on your pet’s surgery day is between 7:45am and 8:15am. There will likely be multiple surgeries scheduled in the same day for other patients, so your pet’s procedure may be performed at any time in the morning or early afternoon. A team member will call you when your pet is ready to be discharged later that day, which is usually scheduled between 3:00pm and 5:15pm. Depending on the procedure, your veterinarian may recommend transporting your pet to a 24-hour facility to be monitored more closely throughout the night.
How We Keep Your Pet Safe
Our priority is your pet. Our team is dedicated to your pet’s health and safety and takes precautions to provide the highest quality and safest care possible. While medical and technological advancements have been made, anesthesia and surgery may still pose risks for certain patients. Our veterinarians perform pre-anesthetic bloodwork for all surgical patients prior to the procedure to rule out any internal issues. Potential risks include clotting disorders, liver and kidney abnormalities, and anemia. Additional precautionary measures are taken for all patients, including customized anesthetic protocols, consistent intra-op and post-op monitoring, and fluid administration. Feel free to call us or schedule an appointment with a veterinarian to discuss any questions or concerns you may have for your pet’s surgery.
