Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At Mt. Olive Veterinary Hospital, we want you to know we understand what you’re going through. That’s because we’re pet owners too. Each member of our team has experienced the uneasiness of surgery with our own animal companions. That’s why we go out of our way to ensure that every procedure performed in our clinic is as stress-free as possible. You can rest assured that your loved one will be in excellent hands with us.
Our process begins with preoperative examination and blood work. This helps us to uncover and prepare for potential concerns so we can reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We will also develop a strategy for keeping your pet comfortable and pain-free — before, during and following surgery.
Your Pet’s Surgery
Regardless of whether it’s a routine spay or neuter, or a more complex procedure, your pet’s surgery will be handled with the utmost care. From the moment you arrive, we will be there to ease your mind and help keep your pet calm and relaxed. Any last-minute questions on your mind will be answered as we get your loved one settled in and prepared for surgery.
Once safely sedated, our team will complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated care team will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet’s well-being.
Discharge and Post-Surgical Care
When surgery is complete, we’ll gently relocate your pet to our safe, quiet recovery area. As the anesthesia begins to wear off, our staff will be there to offer comfort and reassurance. We want to make the experience as calm as possible. When you arrive to pick up your pet, we will go over our aftercare instructions.
Pet surgery doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety, especially with our team at Mt. Olive Veterinary Hospital in your corner. Contact us today and let’s discuss how we can help with all of your companion’s surgical care needs.
