routine and non-routine surgeries

What is the difference between routine and non-routine surgeries?

In general, a ‘routine surgery’ is performed on a healthy pet in a non-emergency situation. It usually consists of spays, neuters, and declaws.

Non-routine surgeries’, on the other hand, are meant to correct a medical condition. These often require advanced medical skills and usually take longer than the regular procedures.

What to expect from pet non-routine surgeries

In general, most pets who undergo these surgeries often feel unwell. Some are in distress and pain, which may cause them to be afraid and unstable. At MyOwnVet, we always do our best to ensure the comfort and safety of our pet-patients at all times.

Before the surgery, we perform a comprehensive physical exam with a complete pre-anesthetic blood-work profile. Each pet gets presurgical medication to reduce pain and the need for higher doses of anesthetic drugs. We also insert an intravenous catheter and fluids to ensure the patient is stable during anesthesia.

During the surgery, our veterinary surgeon and nurses closely monitor your pet for changes in their vital signs. Due to our advanced and modern monitoring equipment, every procedure takes place in perfectly safe conditions.

After the surgery, we keep monitoring the vitals until our patient is awake and out of danger. At this stage, we make sure we administer pain medication depending on each individual’s needs and conditions.
