Surgeries need to be dropped off at the hospial between 7 am and 9 am. Please do not feed your after midnight the night before the surgery. Pick up all food bowls, treats, chews etc. You may leave water down for your pet.

Pre-Anesthetic Blood Test Before Surgery
An animal that suffers from a disorder such as a parasite infection, an infectious disease or a heart murmur presents a different risk factor that must be taken into consideration prior to the surgery. A pre-surgical exam and pre-anesthetic blood test is your petís chance to have adverse conditions detected. Age-appropriate blood tests also reveal problems that arenít obvious. We offer pre-anesthetic blood tests to make sure each pet is a good candidate for surgery.

Safety Precautions During Surgery
While most surgery is uneventful, emergencies sometimes occur. During surgery, the medical team at Suwanee Animal Hospital includes your petís veterinarian and a dedicated veterinary technician. Detecting problems early improves our ability to intervene and correct them. We place a breathing tube on most anesthetized pets to keep Surgery Monitoring equipmentthe airway open and allow for supplemental oxygen or gas anesthesia as needed. A heart (ECG), blood pressure and oxygen monitor allows the surgeon to track your petís heart rate and rhythm, as well as the amount of oxygen in the blood to ensure that respiration and circulation are normal. In addition, patients receive IV fluids during surgery to support circulation as needed. Even the anesthesia and sutures we use are carefully evaluated and selected based on safety, effectiveness and reaction potential.

Safety Precautions After Surgery
Surgery patients lose body heat through anesthesia and the opening of the body cavities. We monitor patient temperature at regular intervals during and after surgery and provide supplemental heating as neededwith a Bair Hugger warming unit. We also monitor your petís gum color, pulse and respiration to ensure that respiration and circulation are normal.

Pain Management
Surgery hurts! The anesthetic does not provide pain control once the pet wakes up, so in addition to analgesics provided during surgery, we offer pre- and post-operative pain control medication as requested by client.

Post-Surgical Care Instructions
Follow-up care is crucial for proper healing. A comfortable pet experiences less stress and a lower likelihood of injury during recovery. If requested, a doctor or team member will discuss your petís post-operative care, provide clear, written discharge instructions and pain medications. And of course, weíll answer any questions you might have whenever you might have them because your comfort is just as important to us as your petís.
