What Your Need To Know About Spay and Neuter Procedures

When your pet is in need of a spay or neuter procedure, there are some important facts about the procedure that every pet owner should know. Please see the items below for more details and be sure to ask our team if you have any questions about what is required for your pet.

  • Before your pet is anesthetized for surgery, we require a pre-surgical examination to be performed. We also recommend pre-anesthetic blood work to help us determine the pet’s health status. This allows us to develop a course of action of the anesthesia and anticipate any potential complications.
  • During surgery, we utilize all safety measures for your pet, including IV fluid administration to keep the pet hydrated, as well as surgical monitoring of blood pressure, body temperature, pulse, heartrate, and more. A veterinary technician will be assigned to your pet’s care during the procedure to monitor them personally.
  • Every tool and surface used is sterile.
  • Pets will be cleaned up post-surgery with a little spa treatment to make them comfortable: brushing, eye and ear cleaning, and nail trim.
  • All patients are administered post-operative pain and anti-inflammatory medications.
  • Recovery takes place in a quiet area where patients are continually monitored by a technician. While your pet is recovering, you will receive a call from your doctor to discuss the surgery.
  • When your pet is ready to go home, you will receive discharge papers with care instructions. If you have questions, our team is always available to talk with you about your pet’s needs.
