With anesthetic, it's best for your pet to stay a few hours in our recovery room so that we can keep an eye on their vital signs and reflexes. We will also diligently monitor your pet for signs of pain and address their discomfort immediately.
The recovery room is designed to be a quiet and calm environment. Post surgery, your pet will be under the supervision of a caring vet technician. Your cat or dog will be kept warm and comfortable, with blankets and pillows. Dr. Kanouse will examine your friend shortly after their surgery and then at regular intervals until discharge. No pet is ever placed in a cage and left alone until it's time to go home.
