Surgical Protocol and Aftercare
We do require that our surgical pets have a current physical exam with us and are up to date on Rabies, and distemper vaccinations. The night prior to your pets surgery we do require you to remove food after midnight but water is ok. Our caring staff monitors your pet’s health before, during, and after all operative procedures. After surgery and recovery, we will thoroughly review all discharge and medication instructions with you. Of course, there may be questions or concerns that come up once you are home, rest assured that our trained and knowledgeable staff are always available to help and give support throughout the recuperation time as well.
