Questions To Ask Before Your Pet's Surgery

When your pet needs surgery, you want to know that it is receiving the best possible care. At Animal Health Services, serving Columbus and the surrounding areas, we provide a state-of-the-art facility where we perform a variety of surgical procedures on cats and dogs. Let's look at a few questions you should ask before your pet's surgery.

How Will Anesthesia Be Used?

Many pet owners are worried about how anesthesia will be used on their pets and if there will be any negative side effects. We use only highly trained animal anesthesiologists to administer this important medication. A significant amount of time and attention has been put into formulating the dosages for specific species and customizing those dosages per size and age. You will have a chance to discuss any concerns you have with your veterinarian before your pet’s surgery date.

What About Recovery?

The recovery time will vary depending on the type of procedure your animal has done. In most cases, recovery will take place at our facility, where our team can closely monitor your pet. If your pet had a major procedure done, it may be kept overnight for further observation. This is to ensure that your animal is safe and recovers properly. It is also a precaution for you and your family. When animals come out of anesthesia, they can be confused and disoriented. This could translate into aggression. Your pet will be kept in a safe location where it will get the care and attention it needs.

How Do I Care for My Pet At Home?

Once your pet heads home after the surgery, you will be given detailed instructions on how to care for it as it heals.
