pet surgery FAQs from your veterinarian in Clifton, NJ

Commonly Asked Questions About Pet Surgery and Recovery

Understandably, our vet receives a number of questions about pet surgery and recovery on a daily basis. In an effort to better inform our clients, we've taken the time to answer some of these questions in one convenient place.

Which surgeries can you perform?

Our experienced veterinary team has performed a wide range of dog and cat surgeries here in our office. However, some of the most common we perform include spay/neuter procedures, gastrointestinal surgery, tumor removal, urinary tract/bladder surgery, and hematoma repair surgery. 

What is rehabilitation surgery?

If your pet has been injured in an accident or has recently had a surgery but is taking some time to recover, we also offer rehabilitation surgery options that can help your pet properly heal and do so more quickly. One option we offer is that of laser surgery, which allows us to use a high powered laser to treat wounds and promote faster healing. 

We also offer therapeutic ultrasound and electrostimulation with whirlpool, which is great for pets recovering from injuries or undergoing physical therapy.

How is my pet prepared for surgery?

We take a great deal of care when it comes to preparing all pets for surgical treatment in our office. This includes conducting any necessary blood testing and other diagnostics to ensure that your pet is healthy enough for surgery and that risks can be minimized. Furthermore, pet owners can enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that surgeries are performed in a sterile environment with careful monitoring of pet vital signs before, during, and after the procedure.

How can I care for my pet after surgery?

We'll want to monitor your pet for awhile after the procedure to ensure they're on the mend. Generally, we'll keep an eye on your pet after he or she comes out of anesthesia. The amount of time we monitor your pet will vary based on the procedure itself, but for some surgeries, you can expect to pick your pet up the same day.

Following any surgical treatment, your main priority will be to keep your pet comfortable as he or she heals and make sure they do not scratch, bite, or chew at the incision site.

Exclusive Offer

Spay or Neuter your pet

Each year 6 – 8 million cats and dogs enter the U.S. shelter system– fewer than half are lucky enough to find forever homes.  The American Veterinary Medical Association reports spaying and neutering adds to the longevity of our furry pals with dogs living an average of 1 to 3 years longer and cats 3 to 5 years more by reducing the risk of certain cancers.

 Call us at (973) 509-5225 to make an appointment for your pet.
