We suggest following this protocol to ensure the best possible surgery procedure and recovery for your pet:
- Do not feed your pet after 8pm the night before surgery
- Walk your dog the morning before surgery so your pet can eliminate (urinate and defecate)
- If your pet is taking medications, let us know what it is and how often it should be given
Before the surgical procedure, we will do one or all of the following:
- Administer an injection for pain relief
- Administer a fentanyl patch
- Epidural and nerve block
After the surgery, your dog will receive an injection of an anti-inflammatory medication. Depending on the procedure performed and the discomfort of your pet, your doctor may prescribe pain relieving medication to take home with you.
