Surgical/Anesthesia Information:

  • All pets undergoing anesthesia at Tell Tail Veterinary Urgent Care are required to have pre-anesthetic blood testing to look at basic organ function and to tailor anesthetic medications used. This will also check for pre-existing medical conditions, which may increase the risk of complications during surgery
  • An intravenous catheter will be placed to provide immediate access to your pet’s circulatory system, this allows for rapid administration of drugs should an emergency situation arise. Your pet will also be administered intravenous fluids to help maintain normal blood pressure, protect vital organs, and maintain proper hydration.

All pets undergoing surgery will receive pain injections. Post-operative pain management is a concern with virtually all surgical procedures. Most procedures merit at-home oral medication for several days after surgery and will be dispensed at the veterinarian's discretion.
