Standard of Surgery

When it comes to surgical procedures, we adhere to the highest industry standards in sterility. All our instruments are sterilised in an autoclave and all surgeries are conducted in a surgical theatre. Our patients continually monitored and are also provided with heat mat during surgery to maintain the wellness of our pets.

All our surgical procedures are accompanied by a fully trained nurse providing assistance to our veterinary surgeons as well as monitoring our patients

WHAT HAPPENS THE DAY BEFORE SURGERY

All our pets that undergo surgery must be fasted before administering any anaesthetic or sedation. The day before surgery is carried out you must ensure your pet does not receive any food past 8pm. Water can be provided throughout the night but it I advised that it should be taken away the following morning.

It is also advised that if you have any outdoor cats as pets that are receiving any surgical treatment should be indoor to ensure that they do not consumer anything over night.

WHAT HAPPENS THE DAY OF SURGERY

On the day of surgery ensure your pet does not have any breakfast and to remove their water bowl in the morning. Be sure to attend your pet’s admission times as instructed by our team at Vets for Pets to allow time for our veterinary nurse to assist you in completing pre-operative admissions.

To help ensure you pet is comfortable throughout their day of surgery is advised that your pet is toileted before admission.

 

OUR CARE PROTOCOL FOR SURGICAL PROCEDURES

Pre-anaesthetic testing

Organs such as the liver and kidneys are responsible for metabolising anaesthetic drugs. Our Veterinary professionals recommend that your pet’s organs are screened prior to undergoing any operation. This is to ensure that their organs are at a good functionality. This can be carried out by a simple blood test on the morning of the operation. The outcome of this test can be achieved in a short amount of time, with no delay in waiting for external laboratories to assess the sample and ensures your pet is receives their treatment immediately.

Fluids

Intravenous Fluid therapy prevent your pet from being dehydrated during surgery and also acts as a flushing agent to flush remaining anaesthetic drugs administered. Fluids are administered throughout the surgical procedure as required. For patients that are deemed as elderly or debilitated or are experiencing any renal health conditions may require extended fluid therapy (throughout the day providing additional time of hydration). Our veterinary professionals will advise you of this matter prior to conducting any surgical procedure

Pain Relief

Post-operative pain in pets is a driving agent in preventing healing post-surgery and can also cause some discomfort. Our veterinarians value your pets post-operative care and to aid in managing your pets pain and discomfort we provide your pet with pain relief medication to take home to assist in the healing process.
