Many people have questions about various aspects of their pet’s surgery, and we hope this information will help. The following will also explain the decisions you will need to make before your pet’s surgery.
When you bring your pet in for surgery, we will need 5 to 10 minutes of your time to fill out a pre-operative release form and make decisions on blood work, as well as additional services. You can do so prior to bringing in your pet if you wish to save time. When you pick up your pet after surgery you can also plan to spend about 10 minutes to go over your pet’s home care needs.
In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to call us with any questions about your pet’s health or surgery.
