Just like their human counterparts, your dogs and cats may require surgery to help improve their overall health and well-being. That being said, as pet lovers ourselves, we understand that when your pet must undergo surgery, it can be the source of anxiety for you as a pet guardian, no matter if it is a minor or major procedure. We make every effort to help you feel at ease and confident that your pet is in the very best hands when they are in our care. We believe in educating our clients to make sure your fears, anxieties, and concerns are addressed and your questions are answered prior to any surgery. Please do not hesitate to contact us with your questions prior to or following your pet’s procedure, as we are always here to help.

Pet Surgery Delivered With Care and Understanding 

Our compassionate and dedicated veterinarians have years of experience in performing an array of surgical procedures for dogs and cats in all different stages of life. Our in-house pet surgery services can address a wide range of issues including pain management, reproductive health, growths, foreign objects, wounds, and other health concerns. 

What to Expect Before Their Procedure

Our Fort Collins animal hospital is well-equipped to perform various surgical procedures on your dogs and cats. Prior to your pet’s surgery, you will meet with your veterinarian to go over the procedure so that you are well-informed about the entire process. During your pre-surgery consultation, we may discuss:

  • Pre-surgery preparation (such as fasting, etc.)
  • Post-surgical care
  • Pain management protocols
  • Prescription medications (such as pain medications, anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, topical analgesics, wound care, etc.)
  • The actual procedure and surgical monitoring
  • Aftercare instructions
  • Recommended follow-up visits
  • And any other information pertaining to your pet’s procedure

Additionally, each patient receives a thorough physical examination and any necessary pre-procedure lab tests, which can be performed in-house, to inform your vet about any existing health conditions or concerns. Of course, during this time we encourage you to ask your veterinarian any questions and address any concerns you may have about any aspect of your pet’s procedure.
