Surgery

 

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

Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At Coit Hedgcoxe Animal Hospital, we want you to know we understand what you’re going through. That’s because we’re pet owners too. Each member of our team has experienced the uneasiness of surgery with our own animal companions. That’s why we go out of our way to ensure that every procedure performed in our clinic is as stress-free as possible. You can rest assured that your loved one will be in excellent hands with us.

 

Pre-Surgical Care

Our process begins with thorough pre-operative screening. This helps us to uncover and prepare for potential concerns so we can reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We’ll also develop a strategy for keeping your best friend comfortable and pain-free — before, during and following surgery. We use the safest, most effective pain control medication and customize our approach to each individual patient.

 

Your Pet’s Surgery

Regardless of whether it’s a routine spay or neuter, or a more complex procedure, your pet’s surgery will be our highest priority. From the moment you arrive, we will be there to ease your mind and help keep your pet calm and relaxed. Any last-minute questions you have will be answered as we get your loved one settled in and prepared for surgery.

Once safely sedated, our team will complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated support staff will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet’s wellbeing. Our surgical suite is outfitted with modern monitoring equipment which helps us track your companion’s vital signs and pain levels.

 

Discharge and Post-Surgical Care

When surgery is complete, we’ll gently relocate your pet to our safe, quiet recovery area. As the anesthesia begins to wear off, our staff will be there to offer comfort and reassurance. We want to make the experience as calm as possible. When you arrive to pick up your pet, we will go over our aftercare instructions, including a plan for pain management. We want to ensure that your loved one recovers as quickly and comfortably as possible.

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

      My boxer got really sick over the weekend. I was worried to take her to the vet because of the corona virus. I called and made an appointment.
      The vet technician came out to my car. She was wearing, scrubs, gloves and a mask. The tech took my dog in to see Dr. Shelly.
      After an examination Dr Shelly called me in my car and prescribed some meds. My boxer is already feeling better.
      Thank you Dr Shelly!

      Been taking all of my dogs to CHAH throughout the years, since ‘99. Dr. Michalk and staff are friendly and very knowledgeable. Chad (Vet Tech) is wonderful with the animals, which gives a sense of comfort as a pet owner. I wouldn’t take my fur babies anywhere else. Thank y’all for giving my dogs the best of care the past 20+ years. I truly appreciate it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

      I’m so thankful for all the staff. Tomorrow Chad is coming to my car to get Pig for his kennel cough and ears cleaned. My visa is on file so during this time of coronavirus I don’t put myself or anyone else at risk. Thank you staff.
