Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At Erindale Animal Hospital, we want you to know we understand what you are going through because we are pet owners too. Each member of our team has experienced their own pet being ill, or needing dental or surgical procedures. That is why we go out of our way to ensure that every procedure performed in our clinic is as stress-free as possible. You can rest assured that your loved one will be in excellent hands with us.
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 will also develop a strategy for keeping your animal family member 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 is 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 safely sedated, our team will complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated support staff will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet’s well being. Our surgical suite is outfitted with modern monitoring equipment, which helps us track your companion’s vital signs.
Discharge And Post-Surgical Care
When surgery is complete, we gently relocate your pet to our safe, quiet recovery area. As the anesthesia begins to wear off, our staff will be there to offer comfort and reassurance. We want to make the experience as calm as possible. When you arrive to pick up your pet, 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 does not have to be a source of anxiety, especially when you have the experienced, compassionate team at Erindale Animal Hospital in your corner. Contact us today and we can discuss how we can help with all of your companion’s surgical care needs.
Spays And Neuters
At Erindale Animal Hospital we do our absolute best to ensure that your furry friends spay or neuter goes as smoothly as possible.
We offer pre-surgical blood work prior to commencing the surgery to ensure it is safe for them to undergo anesthesia. We also perform a comprehensive oral exam to check and make sure all of their baby teeth have erupted from below the gum line and have fallen out. If we are concerned about any baby teeth we perform digital dental x-rays and remove any retained.
Owner’s consent will be obtained prior to any additional procedures or dental work.
