Questions To Ask Before Your Pet’s Surgery At Fairway Knolls Veterinary Hospital

If you are going to be bringing your cat or dog to a veterinarian for a pet surgery in the near future, it is likely you have some questions about the procedure ahead. Contact Fairway Knolls Veterinary Hospital in Bloomington to make an appointment for your pet's surgery, and be sure to read over these frequently asked questions before the procedure is conducted.

How Should A Pet Be Prepared For Surgery?

Unfortunately, since your pet will not understand it is going to have a surgical procedure, there is no real way to prepare them for the process ahead other than providing them with as much comfort as possible leading up the big day. On the day of the procedure, encourage your pet to get into a carrier for a ride to the vet's office. Make sure to bring along someone else to tend to your pet if you will be driving.

What Should A Pet Eat Before Their Pet Surgery Is Conducted?

Our veterinarian will provide you with the details pertaining to eating and drinking before their pet surgery. In many cases, your pet will be required to fast completely before their procedure. This is because general anesthesia is often used, causing the possibility of regurgitation of food or water if it is consumed before the surgery. To avoid complications, follow our veterinarian's request regarding fasting.

What Are The Chances Of A Recovery?

It is hard to determine whether a surgical procedure will be successful in every way until it has been completed. Our veterinarian, however, will discuss the recovery rate success factor with you before your pet's surgery date. At this time, be sure to ask our vet any further questions you have about their condition, including whether other treatment options are available to try before surgery.
