Surgery

 

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

Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At Cedar Veterinary Clinic, 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.

 

Pre-Surgical Care

Our process begins with thorough preoperative screening. 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. We use the safest, most effective pain control medication and customize our approach to each individual patient.

 

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 our highest priority. 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 you have will be answered as we get your best friend 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 support staff will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet’s wellbeing. Our surgical suite is outfitted with modern monitoring equipment which helps us track your companion’s vital signs and pain levels.

 

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, including a plan for pain management. We want to ensure that your loved one recovers as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Surgery doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety, especially if you’ve got the caring, experienced team at Cedar Veterinary Clinic in your corner. Contact us today and let’s discuss how we can help with all of your companion’s surgical care needs.

    Heather is absolutely fantastic! My lab (Hope) was very sick with a uterine infection which was killing her this past winter. Hope's 8 years old (considered too old by some to risk operating on). However, Heather immediately recommended operating to save Hope's life. There was NO hesitation and she took care of Hope that very day! Heather and staff stayed late that evening to look after Hope's needs. Knowing how worried I was about my girl, Heather contacted me to let me know how Hope was doing. My pup has since recovered and is like a new dog - rejuvenated, happy and healthy! I can't say enough good about the skill, dedication and compassion of this clinic and all their staff! Thank you for your hard work and determination!

    They were good to get my sick kitty in ASAP. Everyone there is caring and takes the time to explain things to you. They also treat the animals the way I treat my animals with love and respect for their anxiety and pain or illness. They do not do a cursory exam and then hurry to get you out of there so they can get on to the next patient. The office is clean and welcoming.
