Surgery

Are you feeling nervous or uneasy about your pet’s upcoming surgery?

Our pets are more than just animals. They’re a part of the family. That’s why bringing your animal companion in for surgery – no matter how minor or routine – can be so nerve-wracking. At Briargate Boulevard Animal Hospital, we understand the emotions you’re experiencing and we work to ensure that every surgery we perform is as positive and stress-free an experience as possible for both pets and their people.

 

Customized surgical plan…

Prior to any surgery, we take multiple measures to verify that your pet is healthy enough to proceed. Pre-surgical laboratory testing is strongly recommended, as this allows us to develop a customized anesthesia plan and avoid potential complications that could arise. Our comprehensive prep work also includes developing a customized pain management strategy. Our goal is to keep your loved one as safe and as comfortable as possible – before, during and after surgery.

 

Compassionate patient care…

When you arrive with your pet the morning of surgery, our team will be there to greet you and address any questions or concerns you may have. We want to set your mind at ease and help you to feel confident that your loved one is in excellent hands.

Once the surgery has begun, the doctor will work diligently to complete the procedure in a timely manner. Your pet’s vital signs and depth of anesthesia will be continuously monitored by our experienced veterinary technicians to ensure optimum wellbeing and comfort throughout the procedure. Our surgical suite is outfitted with the most up-to-date monitoring equipment available, and our team adheres to the strictest protocols for patient safety.

 

After-care and recovery…

When surgery is complete, your pet will be carefully relocated to our quiet recovery area where we will continue monitoring his or her wellbeing. You will be contacted and updated about how the surgery went, advised of any noteworthy findings and scheduled for a dismissal appointment. Most patients are able to return home the same day as their procedure. We will provide you with detailed after-care instructions, including a plan for pain management and follow-up care as appropriate.
