Surgery

SURGERY APPOINTMENT

We perform a wide variety of elective (spay, neuter, etc) and non-elective (exploratory, etc) surgeries.

Surgery patients are admitted between 7:30 and 8:30 am. Most patients are allowed water up until the time they are admitted, and a small breakfast - about 1/4 to 1/3 of the usual amount fed in the morning. (Some recent research shows that feeding a small meal, instead of the conventional fasting, minimizes stomach and bowel upsets due to anesthesia. We have found this to be true in practice; also, our patients just seem to be happier when they have had something to eat before coming to see us!)

Discharge of surgery patients is most often the same day as surgery, in the mid- to late- afternoon, when they have had the opportunity to recover from anesthesia and we have had the opportunity that they are stable enough to go home.  Patients who have relatively extensive procedures typically stay overnight one night.
