Bringing an animal companion in for surgery can be a source of anxiety for many pet parents. At Claws N Paws Animal Hospital, we understand the questions and concerns you’re struggling with, and we’re here to help! Regardless of whether your loved one is here for a routine surgery, such as a spay or neuter, or requires a more complex and advanced procedure, you can feel good about the exceptional care he or she will receive. From our modern surgical suite to our experienced staff to the extra attention given to safety and comfort, your pet will be in excellent hands.
Our surgical care begins with thorough pre-operative preparation. We want to minimize the risks associated with surgery as much as we can. We also want to make sure that your loved one remains as pain-free as possible – before, during and following the procedure. That’s why we place a strong emphasis on pre-surgical screening and individualized pain management plans.
The morning of surgery, you will both be welcomed with open arms. It’s important to us that your companion feels calm and relaxed and that you don’t leave with any unanswered questions. While you complete paperwork, a dedicated team member will spend a few moments getting your pet settled in. When the time comes, your pet will be gently sedated and relocated to our surgical suite.
During surgery, our team will remain focused on your pet’s wellbeing. As the doctor proceeds with the operation, one of our experienced technicians will closely monitor your pet’s vital signs and pain levels. Our operating room is outfitted with modern equipment which allows us to manage surgical procedures efficiently and effectively. This means less time under anesthesia, which is much better for your pet.
When your pet has been safely moved to the recovery area of our hospital, you will be contacted via phone. At this time, we’ll explain how the surgery went, discuss any noteworthy findings and arrange a time for you to come pick up your pet. Before bringing your companion home, we will sit down and explain our aftercare instructions. This may include a customized plan to manage your pet’s pain during the days and weeks following surgery.
At Claws N Paws, we’re ready, willing and able to assist with all of your pet’s surgical needs. Pick up the phone and call us today!
