Our Surgical Services
Whether your pet needs a routine procedure or a non-routine surgery, the compassionate veterinary team at Animal Healthcare Clinic of Southlake is here for you and your pet. We offer a wide range of surgical services to meet your pet’s health needs, including routine services like spaying or neutering. As an AAHA accredited animal hospital, we are held to the highest standards of veterinary care in the country. You can be sure that we’ll keep your pet safe throughout their procedure.
Prior to your pet’s surgery, our veterinary team will conduct a comprehensive physical exam and order laboratory tests to ensure they are healthy enough to be placed under anesthesia. This is also an opportunity for our Southlake veterinarian to confirm that surgical intervention is the correct path for your pet’s healthcare.
In order to make sure your pet heals quickly and safely, we’ll send them home with a comprehensive set of instructions to make sure you are able to care for your pet correctly as they recover.
Post-surgical aftercare usually includes:
- Moderating your pet’s activity – Depending on your pet’s particular procedure, there may be prohibitions on the types of activities your pet can engage in. It’s important to limit your pet’s activity so that they don’t injure themselves while they’re healing.
- Adjusting your pet’s feeding schedule – Your pet may not be allowed to resume eating normally immediately following their surgery. We’ll let you know when it’s safe for your pet to resume eating and drinking regularly again.
- Inspecting the surgical site – You’ll have to keep an eye on your pet’s surgical site to ensure that it’s healing properly and without infection. We’ll give you tips on how to keep your pet from licking or scratching their wound as it heals.
- Administering medication – We may send your pet home with prescription medications for pain management or antibiotics. Before you leave Animal Healthcare Clinic of Southlake, we’ll give you detailed instructions on how to properly administer these medications.
We will also schedule a follow up appointment with you and your pet to check on their progress, particularly if your pet had a complicated or non-routine surgery. We want to be sure that your pet is back on their paws as quickly as possible!
If dog or cat has had surgery recently and you have any questions about the recovery process, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at (817) 587-8788 so we can help.
