Every dog owner's primary desire is to keep their beloved furry companions healthy, active, and happy for as long as possible. However, sometimes unforeseen health issues may require a surgical procedure to return them to their normal selves.
We know your dog is a valued member of your family. That’s why we prioritize their safety above all else and pledge to care for your four-legged friend as if they were our own. From pre-operative assessments to post-surgery recovery, your pet is in the most experienced and caring hands.
If the thought of dog surgery is causing you stress or concern, don't hesitate to reach out. We're here to answer all your questions and alleviate your worries. Call us today at (407) 862-6892 to schedule a surgical consultation or follow-up appointment.
Dog Surgeries We Offer
Why Pre-Anesthetic Bloodwork?
No surgical procedure is without risk. That's why we ensure your pet's health is thoroughly assessed before they are placed under general anesthesia.
By checking your pet’s medical history, age, weight, and liver and kidney function, we can confidently assess their capacity to process the anesthesia safely.
We believe in setting high standards of care, and unlike many veterinary hospitals, we require pre-anesthetic blood work for all dogs, not just senior or chronically ill ones.
Post-Op Pain Management & Recovery
Most surgical procedures require some level of post-op pain management. Making your dog comfortable helps reduce recovery times (as well as stress).
We provide detailed instructions for monitoring your dog’s recovery, which often includes staying at home with an Elizabethan collar to protect the surgical site and pain medication to manage discomfort. Also, restricting your dog's physical activity until the healing process is complete is essential.
Should you suspect your dog is experiencing abnormal discomfort during their home recovery, contact us immediately at (407) 862-6892.
