What to Expect

We strive to provide the best possible veterinary surgical experience. Our veterinary team is highly skilled in performing veterinary surgeries, and a typical orthopedic procedure includes:

  • Drop-off beginning at 7:30 a.m. the day of your surgical appointment
  • A complete physical exam and pre-anesthesia blood work to ensure your pet is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia
  • Digital x-rays or other images
  • Careful monitoring before, during, and after surgery
  • The latest in modern anesthesia and pain management techniques

We will carefully review any post-operative care instructions, including the administration of any necessary pain medication.

Rehabilitation Therapy is a particularly important component of recovery from orthopedic surgery.
