Pet Surgery

When it comes to your pet, dealing with a surgery can be a traumatic time, but it is often an inevitable part of a pet’s life. The caring team at AnimERge understands these concerns, which is why we place a strong emphasis on patient comfort and safety with our surgical services. Our surgical suite is equipped with the latest technology and monitoring equipment, so we can closely monitor your pet’s vital signs before, during, and following surgery. Our veterinary professionals are skilled to handle any procedure that your pet may need, whether it is a routine or emergency surgery.

Making a Decision About Your Pet’s Surgery

We firmly believe that effective communication with our clients is beneficial in providing our patients with the best possible care. We know you may have many questions when you discover that your pet needs surgery, so before making a treatment decision, we first discuss the benefits of our recommendations and address your questions. We also provide a thorough explanation of what to expect through every stage of surgery, so you can be as informed as possible before electing treatment.

What to Expect Before Surgery

To prepare your pet for surgery, we generally recommend that you withhold food and water 12 hours prior to your appointment time. This will prevent certain problems and adverse reactions from anesthesia from occurring. We conduct pre-anesthetic blood work prior to any procedure we perform to ensure that your pet is healthy enough for surgery. If necessary, we rely on diagnostic imaging to more accurately determine your pet’s health status. For your pet’s comfort and well-being, we follow strict safety and pain management protocols during surgery preparation.

What to Expect After Surgery

After your pet’s surgery is complete, we will place him or her in a post-operative recovery area as the anesthesia wears off. Our veterinary care team will continue to monitor him or her during this time. When you arrive to pick up your pet, we will provide you with detailed at-home instructions for post-operative care instructions and pain medication, so your companion can recover comfortably and quickly as possible. Please feel free to contact us anytime if you have questions while your pet is recovering.
