Surgical appointments are scheduled Monday through Friday by calling our front office (216-251-7387). The patients go home the same day. All surgical rechecks are performed at no charge. There are additional costs for medications and e-collars. Pain medication and an E-collars are recommended for ALL our patients, so that they may be more comfortable post-operation and help prevent damage to their incisions.
Surgical drop-off is between 7am-8 am.
We recommend all pets are up to date on vaccinations for surgery, and that dogs over one year of age have a heartworm test. We do offer vaccinations, heartworm testing, and other preventative care at the time of surgery.
Please withhold food starting at 10pm the night prior to surgery. The patient can continue to drink water

All pets receive a physical examination prior to surgery. If we find a concern on physical exam, we will call you to discuss if this increases the surgical risk or if you pet needs further care. Please plan on being available by phone to answer our questions the morning your pet is dropped off for surgery.
Anesthesia and surgery do have risks, for any animal regardless of health. We feel our complications are minimal. Please feel free to discuss your concerns with our veterinarians at the time of surgery.
Please plan on your pet resting for 10-14 days after surgery. If you think your pet will need sedation to be kept quiet, please let our veterinary staff know at the time of surgery.
