At Hometown Veterinary Hospital, we perform many surgeries, including but not limited to; spays, neuters, declaws, mass removals, abdominal surgeries dental cleanings/surgery and some orthopedic procedures all under the safest anesthesia with very close patient monitoring. The monitoring includes continuous ECG, IV fluids/fluid therapy, blood pressure, oxygen and carbon dioxide levels.
On your scheduled surgery day, your pet should arrive between 7:30 and 8:00 AM. The night before, no food after 8:00 PM, but water is fine. When Dr. has finished with the procedure you will get a phone call with an update on how everything went. In most cases your pet will be able to go home the same day, but some do have to stay overnight with us. When you get your phone update, you will be notified of when you can pick up!
