Surgery

Slide - BG

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

Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy. At Live Oak Veterinary Hospital, we know exactly what you’re going through because we’re pet owners too. Rest assured that we’ll do everything in our power to ensure that your loved one’s procedure is as stress-free as possible.

Pre-Surgical Care

Our surgical care begins with in-depth preoperative screening. This helps us reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We’ll also create a safe, effective plan to keep your pet comfortable and pain-free – before, during and following surgery.

Surgery

Whether routine or complex, your pet’s procedure will be our highest priority. When you arrive the morning of surgery, we’ll be there to ease your mind and help keep your pet calm and relaxed. 

Once safely sedated, our team will complete the surgery as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our experienced support staff will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet’s wellbeing. 

After Care

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

When you arrive for pickup, we will go over our aftercare instructions, including an appropriate plan for post-surgical pain management. 

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