As a cat owner, you instinctively want to provide the best possible care for your feline friend to ensure they lead a long and happy life. Despite our best efforts, there are times when our cats may require surgery for optimal health.
Your cat is a beloved member of your family, and we understand how worrisome cat surgery can be. At Westmonte Animal Clinic, we put your cat's safety first, treating them with the same love and care you would. From the moment you entrust us with your pet to when you pick them up, we assure you of the highest standard of care!
If you have any questions or concerns about cat surgery, we are here to help. Don't hesitate to contact us at (407) 862-6892 to schedule a surgery or follow-up appointment.
Common Cat Surgeries
Why Pre-Anesthetic Bloodwork?
Surgical procedures, even routine ones, involve some risk. To minimize this risk, we carry out a thorough evaluation of your cat's health before administering general anesthesia. This involves reviewing your cat's health history, age, and weight, as well as testing liver and kidney function. This helps us ensure your cat can manage anesthesia safely.
Many vet clinics require pre-anesthetic blood work only for older cats or those with chronic health conditions. At Westmonte Animal Clinic, we consider it a standard part of all cat surgeries, as we believe it ensures the best possible care for your feline friend.
Post-Op Pain Management
Post-operative pain management plays a crucial role in helping your cat recover quickly and comfortably. We strive to prevent any discomfort that could slow their recovery time and cause them undue stress. Detailed instructions will be provided for monitoring your cat’s recovery at home.
Typically, this may involve the use of an Elizabethan collar to protect the surgical site, along with pain medication to alleviate discomfort. We also recommend restricting your cat's physical activity until they have completely healed.
If you observe any signs of infection or abnormal discomfort while your cat is recovering at home, please contact us immediately at (407) 862-6892.

Frequently Asked Questions
I was so impressed by the cleanliness of this facility I had to leave a 5 star review. The Operating rooms, lobby, and exam rooms are the cleanest I’ve ever seen (even better than most health facilities I’ve seen for human use.)
My poor baby was sick, and Dr. Matagrano was compassionate, patient, and answered all my questions. Now Snowball is on her way to good health, all thanks to this incredible team.
Dr Matagrano is a wonderful, knowledgeable, and caring Veterinarian.
