What to Expect Before and After Your Pet Undergoes Surgery

BEFORE SURGERY:

  • Pre-op blood work will be conducted to determine if your pet is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia.
  • Do not feed your pet after 8 p.m. the night before surgery. Water, however, is OK until the morning of the appointment.
  • Please arrive between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. Expect to spend about 15 minutes during drop-off discussing the operation.

AFTER SURGERY:

We will extensively review post-op instructions with you that are specific to your pet’s procedure, but as a rule of thumb for most operations, be sure that you:

  • Do not feed your pet as soon as you get home. The effects of anesthesia vary, but we often find it decreases appetite and can cause vomiting. Start by offering your pet water. If no vomiting has occurred after water ingestion, we recommend only offering your pet half of dinner rather than the normal full portion.
  • Monitor your pet as much as possible over the next few days and notify us immediately if you witness anything unusually alarming.
  • Limit licking of the incision area.

Depending on your pet’s surgery, we may need to recheck your dog or cat about 7 to 10 days after the procedure. Further recovery and physical therapy options will be discussed on an as-needed basis.
