Do pets need to be under anesthesia during surgery?
Absolutely. This is the humane thing to do, as your pet can fall into a peaceful sleep and feel no pain throughout their procedure. Rest assured we conduct all the necessary tests to ensure your pet is a good candidate for anesthesia and monitor their vitals in the operating room.
How should I care for my pet after surgery?
Post-op care will depend entirely on the type of surgery your pet underwent and their health status. Your veterinarian will explain to you all the steps you need to take to ensure your pet fully recovers. Some common after-care steps are ensuring they take their pain medications on time, keeping their bandages on, and making sure they get lots of rest.
