At Frontier Village Veterinary Clinic, we understand your concern for your pet when he or she undergoes surgery. Our veterinarians and staff take every precaution to ensure the utmost safety and comfort of your pet during the procedure.

What to Expect

Before
Your pet’s veterinarian will make a diagnosis and recommendation for surgery based upon an exam. He or she will discuss, in depth, why it’s necessary and how your pet will benefit. You will be given a treatment plan that will specifically outline the procedure and the cost associated with it. Usually, the veterinarian will order pre-operative blood work to confirm that your pet is a healthy candidate for surgery and that the procedure will not put him or her at unnecessary risk. Only after these steps have been taken will we schedule your pet’s surgery.
The Day of
On the morning of your pet’s surgery, you will come in with your pet and sit down for another review with the licensed surgical technician. After you leave your pet with us, be assured that he or she will be monitored constantly. We will perform your pet’s procedure with both care and efficiency to minimize the time that your pet will be under anesthesia. A licensed veterinary technician will stay with your pet until he or she is recovered from anesthesia, and then your pet will be kept in observation all day with our staff so that he or she will never be out of sight. Your pet will be kept warm and free from pain throughout the entire procedure.
After
our pet’s veterinarian will outline a recovery plan for you and a strategy to keep your pet as pain-free as possible during the healing process.

Spaying and Neutering

Spaying and neutering is an important decision for every pet owner. By deciding to have your pet spayed or neutered, you will help both your pet and animals across the nation. The development of unwanted behaviors can be prevented and the long-term health of your pets is better ensured once they are neutered or spayed. Doing so also helps animal shelters around the country with the burden of dog and cat overpopulation. Countless animals are euthanized by public and private shelters every year because there are not enough families willing to adopt them. You can help these animals find homes and prevent further overpopulation by discussing with your veterinarian when the best time to spay or neuter your pet will be. Learn more by reading our information on spay and neuter procedures.

All of our services are completed on-site with veterinarians you trust and in a facility that is familiar to your pet. When you make an appointment at Frontier Village Veterinary Clinic, we’ll see your pet through every step of his or her procedure.
