What to Expect

Your pet’s health, safety, and comfort are important to us. Before any veterinary surgical procedure is performed, we conduct a complete exam including pre-operative blood work.

We use the latest in surgical techniques and equipment to perform your pet’s surgery. Our veterinary team carefully monitors your pet’s condition before, during, and after surgery. Our surgical procedures mirror the gold standard for veterinary surgeries as outlined by the American Animal Hospital Association.

We will monitor your pet during recovery and call you when your pet is ready to go home. We will review any post-operative care instructions, including medications, with you. Additionally, our pet concierge service is available to transport your pet and deliver any necessary medications.

We know that your pet's wellness is important to you; it is important to us, too. For this reason, we ensure that a recovery technician is sitting with your pet during the recovery process.

Please contact us to schedule your surgical appointment. If any questions arise after your pet returns home, or at any other time during the postoperative period, please let us know.
