Pets sometimes require surgery for a variety of health reasons. Although you may be nervous about having your pet undergo a procedure, be assured that your vet has reached comprehensive training for these occasions. At Compassionate Care Veterinary Hospital of Charlotte, in Charlotte, NC, we will ensure your pet is given careful monitoring throughout the process. Here are a few frequently asked questions pet owners ask.
Spaying and neutering are common reasons for pet surgery. Wound repair or broken bones may require surgical procedures. Eye surgery, removal of bladder stones, tumor removal and heart problems may also require surgical intervention. Abdominal obstruction or “bloat” often requires immediate surgery.
Today’s veterinary anesthesia drugs have been thoroughly tested and are used on millions of animals each year. It is very rare for an animal to have a serious reaction to anesthesia. During surgery, your veterinarian will ensure that your pet’s vital signs are carefully monitored during the procedure and will be ready to intervene if there is a problem.
Your veterinarian in Charlotte will provide full instructions on how you should prepare your pet for surgery. Most important is following the instructions for withholding food before the procedure. Nausea caused by the anesthetic can cause vomiting, which can result in serious problems during the surgery.
Your pet may be groggy for a period after surgery. You can set up a bed in a quiet area of the home to allow him or her to fully recover from the anesthesia. Provide small amounts of food and water after surgery. Your Charlotte veterinarian will provide post-surgery instructions that include exercise restrictions, pain medication, wound care, and other details. Follow the instructions carefully, and your pet will soon be back to normal. Your vet will also provide an appointment for a follow-up office visit to ensure the incision is healing properly.

I have used Dr Johnson ever since she opened this office and my pets love her to death. She is very caring and does not rush you and always answers your questions in layman's terms. She loves her work along with her associates.
