Surgery

Are you feeling nervous about your pet’s upcoming surgery?

Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At Arapahoe Animal Hospital, we want you to know we understand what you’re going through. That’s because we’re pet owners too. Each member of our team has experienced the uneasiness of surgery with our own animal companions. That’s why we do everything in our power to ensure that every procedure performed in our clinic is as stress-free as possible. You can rest assured that your loved one is in excellent hands.

 

Pre-Surgical Care

Our process begins with thorough preoperative screening. This helps us to uncover and prepare for potential concerns so we can reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We’ll also develop a strategy for keeping your animal companion comfortable and pain-free – before, during and following surgery. We use the safest, most effective pain control medication and customize our approach to each individual patient.

 

Your Pet’s Surgery

Regardless of whether it’s a routine spay or neuter, or a more complex procedure, your pet’s surgery will be our highest priority. From the moment you arrive, we will be there to ease your mind and help keep your pet calm and relaxed. Any last-minute questions that arise will be answered as we get your loved one settled in and prepared for surgery.

Once your pet is safely sedated, our team will complete the procedure. As the doctor works, our team will be assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your companion’s well-being. Our surgical suite is equipped with state-of-the-art monitoring equipment which helps us track your pet’s vital signs throughout the procedure.

 

Discharge and Post-Surgical Care

When surgery is complete, we’ll gently relocate your pet to a safe, quiet recovery area. As the anesthesia begins to wear off, our staff will be there to monitor your pet, and to offer comfort and reassurance. We want to make the experience as stress-free as possible. When you arrive to pick up your companion, we will go over our aftercare instructions, including a plan for pain management. We want to ensure that your loved one recovers as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Surgery doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety when you have the experienced, compassionate team at Arapahoe Animal Hospital with you. Contact us today and let’s discuss how we can help with all of your companion’s surgical care needs.

Next time you're visiting us, strike up a conversation with people you meet in our lobby, you never know who you'll meet! 😉
