Surgery and Anesthesia

Bringing a family member in for a surgery or anesthetic procedure is never easy. At Noblesville Square Animal Clinic, we want you to know we understand your nervousness and concerns. We understand because we are pet owners too. Each member of our animal hospital has experienced anesthesia and surgery with our own family members. Our goal is to go out of our way to ensure that every procedure performed in our hospital is as stress-free as possible. You can rest assured that your loved one will be in excellent hands with us.

Our procedures begin with a preoperative examination. Pre surgical bloodwork evaluates the internal organs prior to anesthesia. Bloodwork allows us to detect and prepare for any potential concerns so we can reduce the risk of complications. We’ll also develop a strategy for keeping your family member pain free. Pain medications will be utilized before, during, and after surgery. We use a combination of human anesthetics to give us the safest and most effective anesthesia. All anesthetic events are different and we customize our anesthetic protocols to each individual patient.

Your pet may be having a neuter, spay, or a more complex procedure. Your pet’s surgery will be our highest priority. Once safely sedated, our veterinary team will complete the procedure as timely and efficiently as possible. As the doctor performs the procedure, our dedicated veterinary assistants will be present at all times monitoring anesthesia and assisting with surgery. Our dedicated surgical suite is outfitted with modern monitoring equipment which allows us monitor your pet’s vital signs.

When surgery is complete, we’ll relocate your pet to the treatment area where your pet where the will be continually monitored while recovering. We will contact you when your family member is awake from anesthesia. When you arrive to pick up your loved family member, we’ll go over our aftercare instructions. Recovery instructions will include pain management, medications, dietary changes, and any potential exercise restrictions. We don’t want surgery to be a source of anxiety. If you have any questions or concerns, please discuss with any of our dedicated staff ahead of the procedure to discuss and put your fears at ease.
