Commonly Asked Questions​
We perform Laparoscopic Gastropexy for the deep chested Canines. Call for more details.
We provide Laparoscopic Spays and other procedures with Laparoscopic Surgery. Call today for more details.
Do I need an appointment for my pet to have surgery?
Yes, we schedule surgeries by appointment only unless its an emergency. We do provide emergency surgeries.

After surgery, what does the aftercare entail?
It depends on the type of surgery your pet had. Most surgeries require a restriction of activity normally for 10-14 days (i.e- no running, jumping or playing). You always want to ensure that your pet is not chewing or licking at the incision area. If they are licking or chewing we recommend E-collars, which we can provide. No bathing the pet until sutures are removed. If it is not a routine surgery then we go over what other restrictions or instructions there will be. We like to recheck all surgeries within a week unless otherwise noted.

Is post-op medication required?
This depends on the type of surgery your pet had. With routine surgeries we don't normally provide pain medication or antibiotics because we give injections while in the hospital. If not routine, then normally pain medication and antibiotics are provided for pet with instructions. 

If my pet is already on medications, will this interfere with their surgery scheduled?
We always like to do an exam prior to scheduling surgery to ensure your pet is healthy and to make sure that your pet is not on any current medications that would interfere with surgery. Some medications can delay healing or can cause more bleeding if your pet is on them. So, we do an exam and tell you which medications to discontinue until after surgery.

Does my pet need to return for suture removal after surgery?
In most cases, sutures are applied after surgery. If your pet has sutures then we will need to remove them 10-14 days after surgery. Suture removal is included into the cost of surgery. Only additional cost would be if more antibiotics or pain medication is needed.

What is the difference in a Ovariohysterectomy (Regular Spay) and a Ovariectomy (Lap-Spay)  surgery??
A regular spay (Ovariohysterectomy) is performed through an abdominal opening to remove the uterus and ovaries. Healing time is 10-14 days and restriction of activity is required to ensure that pet does not open the incision or get an infection. A Lap-Spay (Ovarectomy) is performed through keyhole incisions so this makes recovery time quicker and is more comfortable for your pet. The doctor inserts a camera through the keyhole incision to guide his way so he can remove the ovaries. The uterus is left in the abdomen with this procedure. Some pets, if pregnant or have a diseased uterus are not eligible for a Lap Spay so a regular spay has to be performed. This is determined when the camera is inserted and everything is examined before removal.



What precautions should I take pre-operation and post-operation?
PRE- Before surgery is performed on your pet, you want to ensure that he/she is healthy enough to go under anesthesia. Blood work is recommended for any pet but if he/she is 7 years or older it is a requirement to do blood work before placing them under anesthesia. If we find a problem with your pets blood work we then treat that issue , once it is under control we can then perform surgery or decide that your pet is not a good candidate for surgery. We also ensure that there is no medications that your pet is on that would delay healing or cause problems during surgery.
POST- After your pet has surgery, we provide discharge instructions. 



My pet has a surgery scheduled, what now?
Make sure you pet is dropped off on the day scheduled between 7:00am-8:30am. No food previous night after midnight, water is okay. We will then tell you when your pet will be available for pick up.



What does surgery cost?
This varies depending on the surgery performed,please call us for a quote. 

Please note that some surgeries can only be quoted during an exam. 



My pet needs diagnostic work, will I get results today?
We perform most diagnostics in house, meaning you will get results the same day. However, some blood work that we do not perform will be sent to Antech Diagnostics, results vary between 1-14 days depending on test performed.



How long does my pet have to stay after surgery?
This varies depending on surgery performed. Routine surgery, pets go home same day, any other surgery pets stay anywhere from overnight to five days.



Does my pet have to be vaccinated in order to have surgery?
Yes, we require that all pets are up to date on minimal vaccinations in order to have surgery or stay in our kennel. 

For Canines minimum vaccinations include DHLP, PV, BORD, and Rabies.
For Felines minimum vaccinations include FVRCCP and Rabies.
