We perform elective surgeries such as spays and neuters as well as surgery to diagnose or treat disease such as mass removals and cystotomies (bladder surgeries). Because surgery requires anesthesia, we require that all cats have a health screening prior to anesthesia. This includes at least a physical exam. For routine surgeries we strongly encourage pre-operative blood work to look at kidney and liver function. For non-elective surgeries, we require full blood work to be performed prior to anesthesia. We will discuss all of this during your cat’s exam and surgery consultation.
We will ensure that your cat is pain free during and after surgery. You pet will be sent home with pain medication to be given orally for several days afterward. Most surgeries require your cat to be quiet and calm until they are fully healed and any sutures can be removed.
