Pet Surgery

We know bringing your pet in for surgery is stressful and we want to reassure you that the staff at Sam Bass Veterinary Wellness and CTCH is highly trained in all aspects of anesthetic monitoring, patient care and comfort. The doctors, as well, will be right there throughout the entire event.

Important Things to Remember About Your Pet’s Surgery:

  • We will call you the night before to confirm your pet’s appointment and give you all the instructions you will need and happily answer all y our questions.
  • The morning of surgery, one of the technicians will review the procedure, the estimate, and answer any remaining questions you may have.
  • Once ready, the technician will take your pet back and get him/ her set up and comfortable for the procedure.
  • Time is allowed for your pet to settle in prior to any presurgical lab work or placement of an intravenous catheter.
