Questions to Ask Our Veterinarian in West Palm Beach Before Surgery

If you have a cat or dog that is scheduled for a surgical procedure, you are undoubtedly nervous about what your pet will endure during this event. Scheduling a pet surgery at All Care Animal Clinic in West Palm Beach ensures your pet is receiving the best of care before, during, and after a surgery. Here are some questions to ask our veterinarian before your pet's procedure takes place.

How Should I Prepare My Pet For Pet Surgery?

Different surgeries require different preparatory steps to keep your pet safe during the process. Our veterinarian will explain each part of the pet surgery with you in advance. If your pet is required to stay overnight for monitoring, you may want to bring along your pet's favorite blanket or pillow so they have a sense of comfort after the process is conducted. You may also need to restrict your pet's diet before the surgery.

What Should My Pet Eat Before Surgery?

Our veterinarian will let you know at what time you should stop feeding your pet before its surgery begins. Since your pet may need general anesthesia for the procedure, it is best that they have an empty stomach so regurgitation does not occur during the surgery. In some cases, our veterinarian will also restrict your pet from drinking water before a surgical procedure.

What Are The Chances Of My Pet Being Fully Treated?

The likelihood of a full recovery after a surgery depends on the reasoning for the procedure. Our veterinarian will sit down and discuss percentages with you before the process begins. They will also keep you informed about your pet's prognosis after the procedure is conducted.
