Our Cat Surgery Procedures Ensure Your Cat’s Overall Well-being
There are a handful of cat surgeries performed at Sykesville Veterinary Clinic, including spay and neuter, dental procedures, growth removal and bladder stones. It should be noted that here at Sykesville we do not offer orthopedic or cardiac care, but we can refer you and your cat to a specialist that we trust.
If your cat requires a surgical procedure that can be performed at our clinic, we have a handful of pre- and post-care instructions that will help ensure the overall health and wellness of your feline. Most cats will need to have an operation of some kind at some stage in their life, which is why it is important for you to be aware of the various types as well as care instructions.
Nowadays most operations performed on cats are fairly safe, but it is important to remember that the recovery time and treatment plan will depend on the type of cat surgery and quality of care that is given before and after the operation.
Things to Know Prior to or Post-Cat Surgery Procedure
Before your cat is taken in for an operation, it may be a good idea for you to arrange to take some time off of work. This will allow you to be able to care for your cat throughout the duration of the recovery period.
While the risks of complications during and after surgery are low, it is will a good idea for you to be present and aware of the possible issues that may arise. It is also a good idea to make sure your cat is up-to-date with his vaccinations before surgery, as this can lower his risk of infectious disease.
Your vet will provide you with specific post-operation care instructions after your cat’s surgery. If you have any questions leading up to the surgery or during the recovery process, please do not hesitate to contact our clinic.
Everything was great!! Both cats responded wonderfully. After the fight to get them here, I was amazed at how relaxed they were with everyone once we got here. 🙂Shannon Burlingame & 'Ari & Emmy'
