Pre-Surgical Consultation

Our pre-surgical consultation is designed to prepare both you and your pet for the upcoming surgery. During this time, we:

  • Conduct a thorough physical examination of your pet.
  • Review your pet’s medical history and any current medications.
  • Discuss the details of the recommended surgical procedure.
  • Perform necessary diagnostic tests to ensure your pet is a suitable candidate for surgery.
  • Address any questions or concerns you may have about the surgery or anesthesia.
  • Provide detailed instructions on preparing your pet for surgery, including fasting requirements.

Post-Surgical Care

After surgery, our commitment to your pet’s health continues with comprehensive post-surgical care, which includes:

  • Pain management to ensure your pet’s comfort.
  • Monitoring for any signs of complications.
  • Personalised care instructions for at-home recovery.
  • Scheduled follow-up appointments to monitor healing and remove sutures if necessary.
  • Rehabilitation services if required to aid in recovery.

Frequently asked questions

Are follow-up appointments necessary?

Yes, follow-up appointments allow us to monitor your pet’s healing process, remove sutures if needed, and address any concerns you may have during recovery.

Can I stay with my pet during their surgery?

To ensure a sterile and focused environment for our surgical team, pet owners are not allowed in the operating room. However, we understand the importance of your support and will keep you updated on your pet’s status.

How long will my pet need to stay at the clinic after surgery?

The length of stay depends on the procedure and how quickly your pet recovers from anesthesia. Some pets may go home the same day, while others may need to stay overnight for monitoring.

How should I prepare my pet for surgery?

Follow the fasting instructions provided during the pre-surgical consultation, and make sure your pet is calm and comfortable before arriving at the clinic. Avoid any strenuous activity the day before surgery.

What are the signs of complications after surgery?

Be vigilant for signs such as excessive redness, swelling, or discharge at the surgical site, lethargy, vomiting, or difficulty eating or drinking. Contact us immediately if you notice any of these symptoms.

What should I expect during my pet’s recovery period?

Recovery times vary depending on the type of surgery and your pet’s overall health. We will provide you with specific instructions for care at home, including how to manage pain and monitor the surgical site for signs of infection.
