At Edmond East Animal Hospital, we provide exceptional dog and cat surgery services. When your pet is in need of a surgical procedure, we take special care for their safety and comfort. Before any surgery is performed, our veterinary team will conduct a blood panel to test your pet’s organ function and ensure that they are healthy enough to undergo surgery and have anesthesia administered.
What to Expect for Your Dog and Cat's Surgery
When your pet’s surgery day arrives, they are checked in to our animal hospital first thing in the morning and will have their blood work completed if it was not already done in advance. Ordinarily we will recommend doing it prior to the day of surgery, just to avoid any complications.
During your dog and cat’s surgery, they will be closely monitored. We utilize:
- IV catheters which are placed for the administration of warmed IV fluids. This helps maintain blood pressure, kidney function, and body temperature. In addition, if there was a problem, the IV line allows for rapid treatment.
- Breathing tubes for anesthetic gas administration and safety
- Multimodal pain management, including pain injections or local blocks, depending on the surgery or needs
- Monitoring that encompasses blood pressure, oxygen saturation, heart rate and rhythm, breathing regulation, and body temperature
Post-operative recovery involves the physical presence of our veterinary nursing staff to ensure that your pet is sitting up and recovering easily after surgery. We will give you a call after your pet awakes to give you an update on their surgery. When your pet is able to go home, we will meet with you to discuss any discharge instructions and send you home with a handout for reference.
Our team will check with you the day after surgery to ensure your pet is doing well and to address any questions or concerns about your pet’s needs. Contact us and we’ll be happy to help!
Dr. Rex and the whole Staff are great. Very helpful and caring group.
You could not get better Veterinarians! Known these 2 for years and we are blessed to have them back in Oklahoma! Welcome Home!
I love everything about Edmond East! They have amazing doctors, outstanding staff and a fabulous facility!
The best vet in Edmond! Seriously the cleanest and cutest office! Dr Johnson and his staff were so incredibly helpful, and fit Sadie in and she is on the mend!
Edmond East does a wonderful job with Bon. Like every dog, Bon hates going to the vet but he is relaxed and calm when going here. Plus he gets top-notch vet care. I highly recommend Edmond East.
Always reasonably priced, caring, and excellent customer service!!
I simply love each and every person there!!! Never had a vet that loved my pets as much as me and were so friendly and caring!!! Thank you for making our move better!
This place is the best from the veterinarians to the staff. We are so happy we found this place. My 9 dogs, 3 cats and bird are happy patients and say thank you.
Thanks for taking such good care of Fancy's leg. She's such a sweet dog we love her to pieces, and she will live out her life as a princess!!!
I highly recommend this animal hospital. I felt very comfortable and they did such a wonderful job checking the lump on my Guinea Pig. They were very careful and sweet when handling him. Really awesome place! Will be returning there for sure!
Dr. Johnson and his staff didn't give up when it came to figuring out what was wrong with our Duke. They are so caring and so very understanding when it comes to your concerns and it does not feel that it is all about the money but rather about the well being of your pet. They have definitely earned my business!
They treat you and your loved ones like family! They have been so generous and kind to our babies(we are forever grateful). We will never have the need to look for another Vet. This practice, this family rocks!!
We absolutely love Dr. Johnson and his staff. They take great care of our Watson and make us feel like family as soon as we walk through the door.
Hands down the best place ever..Our Babies love them too!!
