Finding out your pet needs surgery can be a frightening time. Even if the procedure is simple and routine, you probably have a lot of questions and concerns. Will my pet be in a lot of pain? Will he or she be kept safe throughout the procedure? Most importantly, you want to be certain that your loved one receives the best possible care. After all – they’re an important part of your family.

The team at Moore Animal Hospital understands what you’re going through, because we’ve been there ourselves. Even though surgery is something we deal with on a daily basis, each one of us has been in your shoes with our own furry family members. That’s why we go above and beyond to ensure that every procedure performed in our hospital is as positive and stress-free an experience as possible.

Our experienced doctors and compassionate care team are here to make sure your pet’s surgery is a success. From our extensive pre-surgical screening to the moment you drop your loved one off for surgery, until the procedure is complete and it’s time to bring your pet home – rest assured that he or she will be in caring, capable hands at all times.

Pre-Surgical Care

Prior to surgery, we’ll determine what your pet’s unique needs and risk factors are so that we can account for these things throughout the procedure. The more prepared we are ahead of time, the safer your pet will remain. We’ll also develop a customized pain management plan to help keep your companion comfortable and pain-free before, during and following surgery.

Your Pet’s Surgery

During surgery, the doctor will work with swiftness and precision, adhering to the highest standards of safety and care. Our compassionate care team will be on hand at all times to assist with surgery and to closely monitor your pet to ensure his or her well-being from start to finish.

Some of the surgical procedures regularly performed at Moore Animal Hospital include:

  • General Surgery
  • Oral Surgery
  • Laser Surgery
  • Orthopedic Surgery

Aftercare

When surgery is complete, your loved one will be carefully moved to our hospital’s recovery area, where we will continue to monitor them closely as the anesthesia begins to wear off. Someone from our team will contact you to explain how the procedure went, discuss any pertinent details and arrange a time for you to come retrieve your pet. When you arrive, we’ll go over our post-operative care instructions, including an appropriate pain management plan to help make the recovery process as comfortable as possible for your pet.

If you recently learned that your pet needs surgery, there’s no need to panic. Whether it’s a routine spay or neuter or a complex procedure to save your pet’s life, you can feel confident that the surgical team at Moore Animal Hospital will do everything within our power to make the experience a success. We’ll have your four-legged friend fixed up and on the road to recovery before you know it!
