Preparing for Your Pet’s Surgery

Commencing with a consultation, your pet may require various surgical services, ranging from routine procedures like spaying or neutering to addressing orthopedic injuries, soft tissue repair, or mass removal. To prepare for your pet’s surgery, consider the following guidelines:

Become Fully Informed

Before the appointment, list all questions to ensure you are fully informed about the procedure. Inform the veterinarian about your pet’s health history, including allergies or previous surgeries.

Discuss Options

Explore alternative options and understand the necessity of surgery. Inquire about the duration of the surgery, post-operative care, and the expected recovery timeline.

Getting Your Pet Ready for Surgery

The veterinarian will provide pre-operation instructions, ensuring you understand them thoroughly. For planned surgeries, schedule the procedure at a time when you or someone else can closely monitor your pet post-operation.

Follow pre-operation instructions diligently:

  • On the day before surgery, adhere to fasting instructions to ensure your pet’s stomach is empty during anesthesia.
  • Arrive at the veterinary office on time, and if your pet is difficult to catch, consider confining them the night before.

Recovery and Post-Operative Care

After surgery, your pet will be monitored in a recovery area. Once it’s time to bring your pet home, be well-prepared for post-operative care:

  • Understand the duration of confinement, if required.
  • If medications are prescribed, ensure you can administer them and inquire about possible mixing with food.
  • Be aware of any follow-up appointments for suture or staple removal.
  • Consider whether your pet needs a protective collar (cone of shame) to prevent licking the incision.
