Questions to Ask Before Pet Surgery

Pets go through surgery to be spayed or neutered. No matter what type of surgical procedure your pet needs, being prepared for it and knowing what to expect is important. At Morgan Pet Clinic, our animal hospital in Omaha, NE, provides a safe, caring environment for pet procedures. Our veterinarian offers tips on what to ask before your pet has surgery.

Is Surgery the Only Option?

Veterinary medicine offers a wide range of treatment options depending on the pet's condition, the problem's severity, and the pet owner's preferences. Surgery depends on your pet’s condition. We can give you more information on the best treatment option for your pet, both surgical and non-surgical.

Is Anesthesia Safe for My Pet?

Anesthesia is used to help keep animals calm so our veterinarian can perform surgery as safely as possible. Our veterinary staff at our animal hospital monitors pets’ vital signs while under anesthesia to ensure safety.

How Long Will My Pet Need to Be There?

The timely process depends on the type of surgery your pet requires. Simple procedures like spaying and neutering typically don’t require an overnight stay. However, your pet will likely need to stay overnight after a complex process at our animal hospital.

How Should I Get My Pet Ready for Surgery?

Follow any instructions our veterinarian gives you about preparing for pet surgery. For example, your pet might not be allowed to have food or water for a certain number of hours before the procedure. Avoid giving your pet any medication before surgery.
