Veterinary Surgery

Surgical Treatment at Family Pet Animal Hospital

At Family Pet Animal Hospital, we understand that whether routine or emergency, leaving your pet for surgery can be stressful and unnerving for both you and your companion. That’s why you can rely on us to provide quality, compassionate care throughout your pet’s entire stay.

Before Surgery

Your pet will be examined and anesthetics will be hand-selected depending on their breed, age, health, and lifestyle. Blood tests will also be done before any anesthesia is given to confirm that your pet’s organs are functioning properly and that your pet is a good candidate for anesthesia.

During Surgery

During surgery, we have a highly trained staff member devoted to keeping an eye on your pet’s vitals. Their main priority is monitoring your pet’s blood pressure, heart rate and rhythm, respiratory functions, body temperature, and maintaining proper oxygen levels for your pet. Communication is also an important part of the surgery process, and our staff will keep you fully informed about your pet’s surgery, progress, and recovery.

After Surgery

If necessary, our comprehensive pain management plan may include at-home pain medication to keep your dog or cat as comfortable as possible. We are more than happy to walk you through every step and explain everything you need to know for post-surgery care at home.
