What Should I expect for the Surgery?
Pre-Operational Consultation: As with all surgeries, a pre-operational consultation is imperative to ensure the needs of your pet are met to the best ability.
It is your opportunity to consult with your vet about your concerns and questions and to gain as much insight as possible to secure your furry companion’s comfort during and after the surgery.
Because there are a series of soft tissue surgeries, each condition has a unique surgical procedure.
As a result, each specialist has to fulfill a different role and your pet needs to be comfortable enough to facilitate a smooth operation. Further, the vet is able to monitor your pet’s pain tolerance and assess any complications pre and post op.
If you have further questions about soft tissue surgery for your pet, consult with your pet’s primary vet to determine whether it is a viable option for your furry companion. We want to make certain that your pet is living a healthy and stable life and we will work with you to secure such outcome.
