Questions to Ask Before Your Pet’s Surgery
Has your precious pet been diagnosed with an illness or injury, and surgery is the only treatment option? You may have a lot of questions regarding the procedure and your pet's safety. Don't shy away from asking your questions. At our veterinary practice in Grand Junction, CO, Dr. Jean Fromm is always ready to address any of your questions or concerns.
How Can I Prepare My Pet for Surgery?
This is one of the most crucial questions you should ask your vet. Understanding the correct preparation measures will help improve the surgery's effectiveness. Typically, our vet will tell you to limit your pet’s food intake several hours before surgery, ensuring your animal rests well the day before to prevent muscle soreness, and avoiding any medication that may interfere with the surgery.
How Will the Surgery Be Conducted?
You may want to learn more about the surgery. Don't be afraid to ask our veterinarian to explain the details. At this point, also ask if there are risks of any complications or other concerns you should be aware of. Our vet will be honest with you and tell you about everything involving your pet.
What Care Options Should I Implement After the Surgery?
After the surgical procedure, you will want your pet to recover as soon as possible. Our veterinarian will provide a thorough post-op care plan to help your pet recover quickly. Our vet may recommend a nice resting place, a special diet, physical therapy, and other things, depending on the surgery. Make sure you follow any advice provided by our veterinarian.
