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!
Very friendly and helpful staff/docs. And they follow-up after care to check on our dogs. Really pleasant experience!
The staff at Edmond East is always kind and understanding. They worked with my evolving schedule to get my dog in and spent time on the phone and in person talking to me about the situation and expectations.
Dr.'s Johnson and Vasquez and all the staff are great and they form solid relationships with our dogs.
Great people from Vet to staff. They are very caring for our pets but us as well.
Everyone is really kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, and the costs are reasonable.
As always, I was welcomed as soon as walked in as the staff is always the best. So friendly and happy. The time and care that we receive from Dr Johnson and his staff is incredible. Never rushed always answers all of my questions. When I leave, I always feel so much more assured that my animals have had the best care by all of the staff and Dr Johnson and Dr Vasquez.
Animal East is always able to schedule us quickly and truly cares about our dogs. Thank you!
