General Surgery

General Surgery

We understand that having a pet undergo a surgical procedure can be a stressful time for you. We do our best to answer all of your questions and explain the risks, benefits, and steps of your pet’s procedure as thoroughly as possible so that you’ll know what to expect.
At Frisco Pet Hospital, Dr. Moore always recommends the least-invasive treatment that will still be effective to address health concerns in pets. However, despite our best efforts using medications, lifestyle adjustments, and other less-invasive treatments, pets sometimes still need surgery.

What to Expect When Your Pet Needs Surgery

Pre-Operative Care

Before administering general anesthesia and prescribing pain medications, our veterinarian will also perform a general blood test to make sure your pet is healthy enough to undergo the proposed surgery.
Before your pet’s surgery, we’ll provide you with instructions to prepare your pet for the upcoming procedure. This might include administering medications like antibiotics and/or anti-inflammatories. Additionally, we will likely request that you restrict your pet’s food and water intake the night before surgery.

During the Procedure

During your pet’s surgery, our skilled team works with the utmost care and attention to detail, closely monitoring our patient’s vital signs throughout surgery. We use only the highest quality pet medications to ensure a pain-free, stress-free experience and faster recovery for each of our patients.

Post-Operative Care and Follow-Up Exams

We’ll notify you, as soon as your pet is out of surgery and recovering. Following your pet’s procedure, we will provide you with after-care instructions to accelerate your pet’s recovery and limit pain while your pet heals.
Instructions might include restricting activities, administering medications, and wound care. If necessary, we’ll schedule follow-up appointments, too.
