Surgery

Are you feeling nervous about your pet’s upcoming surgery?

Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At Paw Prints Animal Hospital, we want you to know we understand what you’re going through. That’s because we’re pet owners too. Each member of our team has experienced the uneasiness of surgery with our own animal companions. That’s why we go out of our way 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.

 

Pre-Surgical Care

Our process begins with thorough preoperative screening. This helps us to uncover and prepare for potential concerns so we can reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We’ll also develop a strategy for keeping your best friend comfortable and pain-free — before, during and following surgery. We use the safest, most effective pain control medication and customize our approach to each individual patient.

 

Your Pet’s Surgery

Regardless of whether it’s a routine spay or neuter, or a more complex procedure, your pet’s surgery will be our highest priority. From the moment you arrive, we’ll be there to ease your mind and help keep your pet calm and relaxed. Any last-minute questions that arise will be answered as we get your loved one settled in and prepared for surgery.

Once safely sedated, our team will complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated support staff will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your companion’s wellbeing. Our surgical suite is outfitted with modern monitoring equipment which helps us track your pet’s vital signs and pain levels.

 

Discharge and Post-Surgical Care

When surgery is complete, we’ll gently relocate your loved one to our safe, quiet recovery area. As the anesthesia begins to wear off, our staff will be there to offer comfort and reassurance. We want to make the experience as calm as possible. When you arrive to pick up your pet, we will go over our aftercare instructions, including a plan for pain management. We want to ensure that your furry family member recovers as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Surgery doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety, especially if you’ve got the experienced, compassionate team at Paw Prints Animal Hospital in your corner. Contact us today and let’s discuss how we can help with all your companion’s surgical care needs.

      I do recommend the vets there. Some of the staff I was not really happy with when they would not muzzle my dog to clip his nails. Then he had to have a couple of lumps removed and the C collar is so big on him. After I paid almost 600.00 which 20.00 of that was for the C collar they told me I could go to pets mart and get one that would fit him for 19.99....Really you couldn't have someone to run up to pets mart and get one. That upset me. So now I have to hold his food bowl up to him to get him to eat because the C collar is so big he can't get to his bowl.

      I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful with questions I had when I took my dog and cat there to get up to date on vaccines. The prices are also fair for the services my pets needed. Saturdays are chaotic, and they seem focused on doing the best they can to see everyone possible.

      My husband and I took our first puppy (Pumpkin) to Dr. Cousins at Paw Prints Animal Hospital back in 2006 for her first shots & checkup; and now Pumpkin is nearly 12 and still doing great! We love the Paw Prints Animal Hospital veterinarians, over the years we have seen and talked with them all! And even though we have now moved away from Easley to another city, we will still take our pets to Paw Prints 🐾 they are just that good!
