After surgery, our priorities shift to post-operative monitoring and pain management. Your vet will also give thorough instructions for at-home care.

The Surgery Process

We understand that the idea of bringing your pet in for surgery can be concerning. If surgery is deemed necessary for your cat or dog, you can rest assured that our team will take the utmost care of your four-legged companion and treat it as our own.

We will ensure that you fully understand why we are recommending surgery and that you are comfortable deciding to move ahead.

If your pet requires advanced care, our vets will refer you to a veterinary surgeon near Houma and Raceland, and work closely with your vet surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.

Surgical protocols at our clinic include:

Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the specifics of the procedure. To ensure your pet's safety, we carefully examine and screen each patient prior to the procedure.

The vet will complete and review blood tests to check for any abnormalities or conditions that may be problematic. This also enables us to tailor anesthetics specifically for your pet. We also monitor vital signs throughout all stages of surgery and recovery.

Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are performed in a dedicated surgical suite. This room is kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.

Surgical attire. Our staff wears disposable caps and masks at all times when they are in the surgical suite. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.

Sterile packs and equipment. We carefully clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment prior to every surgery.
