FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
As with human surgeries, every case and every pet is unique. Generally speaking, most animal surgeries are pretty low risk; however, all surgeries do carry some risks and concerns. It’s important to have an experienced veterinary team that you trust, and we are here for you! The good news is that veterinary medicine is constantly progressing with your pet’s health and safety being the top goal, so the risks are low for your pet to have any major complications from most surgeries. If your pet needs surgery, set up a consultation, and will discuss any risks that might be involved.
Our ability to monitor patients during surgery makes procedures safer than ever before. Before anesthesia, we will examine your test and run blood work to ensure the health of the liver and kidneys. If we learn of any serious problems, we may recommend postponing surgery if possible. We will also ask you to make sure your pet has an empty stomach before their procedure to reduce the risk of vomiting during and after anesthesia.
Even though they usually don’t show it in the same ways, like humans, pets can experience pain. We will work with you to determine the best way to control your pet’s pain. Dogs can take oral anti-inflammatory medications; however, cats do not tolerate many standard pain medications. Recent advances have allowed for better pain control in cats. Do not ever give your pet human medications. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us regarding your pet’s pain.
Most importantly, after surgery, always follow the instructions provided by your vet. It is important to leave the incision alone. If you have any concerns about healing, contact us as soon as possible. As far as what’s appropriate for your pet’s eating, exercise, and rest, we will provide all information to you. You can always feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
