Overview of the Surgical Process
THE SCREENING PROCESS
We carefully screen each cat prior to any surgical procedure being performed. This is to ensure that they are healthy enough to proceed.
Older cats and also kitties with existing medical conditions benefit from this screening, because they can be more at risk during surgery. Pre-surgical screening assists us in identifying potential risk factors in advance, which means lower risk for your kitty.
The more prepared we are in advance of the surgery, the better the chances of a smooth, uneventful procedure.
PAIN MANAGEMENT PLAN
Once kitty is cleared for surgery, we'll create an individualized plan for pain management.
Our goal is keep your feline friend pain-free. We do this by working to prevent pain before it even begins, so that your cat has as little stress as possible afterwards.
THE DAY OF THE SURGERY
Communication with our cat moms and dads has always been a top priority The Cat Hospital, and surgery days are especially important. We'll take the time to explain to you what to expect, and to answer your questions as thoroughly as we can.
Then we'll take time to get your kitty as relaxed and comfortable as we can.
When we're ready to begin, we'll administer the safest protocol of anesthesia.
DURING THE SURGERY
When the surgery begins, the doctor will work as efficiently as possible, without rushing. We make an effort to minimize the amount of time your kitty will be under anesthesia, as this reduces the risks associated with all anesthetic procedures.
Meanwhile, our experienced veterinary technicians will assist the doctor by closely monitoring your cat throughout the procedure.
AFTER THE SURGERY
Once the surgery is complete, your kitty will be relocated to our recovery area. Our care team will make sure that your cat is as pain-free as possible as s/he comes out of anesthesia.
One of our team members will contact you to let you know how things went, and when you can pick up your pet.
Before your bring your loved one home, we'll spend time with you to review how to care for kitty at home during the recovery process.
