Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At Animal Hospital of Mt. Pocono, we want you to know we understand what you’re going through. That’s because we’re pet parents too. Each member of our team has experienced the uneasiness of surgery with our own animal companions. That’s why we go above and beyond to ensure that every procedure performed in our clinic is as stress-free as possible. You can rest assured that your loved one will be in excellent hands with us.
Our surgical process begins with thorough preoperative screening. This helps us to uncover and prepare for potential concerns so we can reduce the risk of potential complications for your pet. We’ll also develop a strategy for keeping your companion comfortable and pain-free — before, during and following surgery. We use the safest, most effective pain control medication and tailor our approach to each individual patient.
Regardless of whether it’s a routine spay or neuter, or a more complex procedure, your pet’s surgery will be our top priority. From the moment you arrive, our supportive staff be there to ease your mind and help keep your little buddy calm and relaxed. Any last-minute questions will be answered as we get your loved one settled in and prepped for surgery.
Once safely sedated, our team will complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated care team will remain present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet’s wellbeing. Our surgical suite is outfitted with modern monitoring equipment which helps us manage your companion’s vital signs and pain levels.
When surgery is complete, we’ll gently relocate your loved one to our safe, quiet recovery area. As the anesthesia wears off, our staff will be there to offer comfort and reassurance. Our goal is to make the experience as calm as possible. When you arrive to pick up your pet, we’ll discuss our aftercare instructions, including a plan for pain management. We want to ensure that your best friend recovers as quickly and comfortably as possible.
