Surgery

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

At Southlake Animal Hospital, we understand that bringing a family member in for surgery can be nerve wracking. We know exactly what you’re going through because we’re pet owners too. Rest assured that we’ll do whatever it takes to ensure that your companion’s procedure is as stress-free as possible.

Pre-Surgical Care

Surgical care at Southlake Animal Hospital begins with preoperative screening. This helps to reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We’ll also customize a safe, effective plan to keep your pet comfortable and pain-free – before, during and following surgery.

Surgery

Your pet’s procedure – whether routine or complex – will be our highest priority. From the moment you arrive, we’ll be there to ease your mind and help keep your pet calm and relaxed. 

Once safely sedated, the doctor will work diligently to complete the surgery. Our dedicated support staff will be available at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet’s wellbeing. 

After Care

After surgery, we’ll gently relocate your companion to our recovery area, where our staff will offer comfort and reassurance. 

When you arrive to pick up your pet, we’ll carefully explain our aftercare instructions, including a plan for pain management. 

Surgery doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety, especially if you’ve got the right team in your corner. Contact Southlake Animal Hospital today and let’s discuss how we can help with all of your companion’s surgical care needs.
