The Day Of Surgery
Drop off time is usually between 7:30-8:30 am, before our clinic opens. Just ring the doorbell when you arrive and we will meet you and welcome your pet inside. We will confirm your paperwork, weigh your pet, and ask you some questions. Plan for about 20 minutes to go through this process.
The Veterinarian will perform a physical exam the morning of surgery and will call you to discuss the physical exam and answer any questions you still have about the day. We will also call you after the procedure is over to let you know how it went and when you can be reunited with them.
Your pet will have a tailored anesthetic protocol just for your pet and will be monitored by a registered veterinary technologist. They will receive IV fluids, hospitalization for the day, post-operative monitoring, pain medication given at the time of the procedure as well as some to go home, local blocks of the surgery site where appropriate, and lots of love from all our team.
