Are you feeling nervous about your pet’s upcoming surgery?

Bringing a family member in for surgery is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At Haiku Veterinary Clinic, we understand that while surgery is a part of our everyday routine, it isn’t something you or your pet will have to experience very often. Because of this, you probably have questions and concerns. We want to help make this experience as smooth and easy as possible for you both.

Our competent doctors are skilled at performing a wide spectrum of pet surgical procedures. Most importantly, we make patient safety and comfort our highest priority. When it comes to surgery, you can feel confident entrusting your pet to our care.

Our pre-surgical process includes detailed screening to help us identify any risks that may be of concern for your pet. Knowing this ahead of time helps us to better prepare and reduce the chance of complications. We’ll also develop an individualized plan for keeping your pet comfortable and pain-free, using the safest and most effective pain relief medication. This preparation prior to surgery ensures a smoother process from start to finish.

During your pet’s surgery, we will work diligently to limit the amount of time he or she must be sedated. The doctor will perform the procedure with great precision while our experienced support staff closely monitors your pet’s wellbeing. Our modern surgical suite is outfitted with up-to-date equipment that allows us to deliver exceptional patient care throughout the entire procedure.

When surgery is complete, we will carefully transfer your loved one to our quiet, peaceful recovery area. There, a dedicated team member will continue to keep a close eye on your companion as the anesthesia begins to wear off. As your pet wakes up, he or she will be greeted by the gentle touch and reassuring voices of our staff. This helps to make the experience stress-free and easy for your pet.

Someone from our office will reach out to you to explain how the surgery went, discuss any noteworthy findings and advise you on when your pet will be ready to go home. When you arrive for pickup, we will go over our post-surgical care instructions.

If you recently learned that your companion needs surgery, we want you to know you’re not alone. Pick up the phone and give us a call. We can answer you questions, discuss your concerns and help set your mind at ease.
