Surgery

At Paws & Prairie we do have  a fully equipped surgical suite to accommodate various different surgical procedures. We believe in utilizing the highest level of medical technology, and our surgeons and monitoring technicians are experienced and highly trained. We also realize that it can be stressful to have your pet undergo surgery. We want to assure you that your pet is in good hands, and that we will do everything to provide the best care possible. We will communicate with you about the things you need to know before, during, and after your pet’s surgery. It is our goal to make the entire process go smoothly, and to eliminate the stress and worry of surgical procedures.

What To Expect If Your Pet Is Having Surgery

You may be emailed a surgical consent form a few days prior to your scheduled surgery time. If you do not have an email, one of our staff members will go over this form with you. The form will ask you a few questions related to the surgical procedure.

The day of the procedure you will be checked in by one of our surgical veterinary technicians. They will check your pets weight and temperature and will confirm all surgical details with you. Pets are then brought to our kennel rooms until they are ready for their procedure. Staff members will stay in constant communication with you regarding your pet’s surgery. Your pet’s surgical technician will set up a pick up time with you and will go over any medications and discharge instructions with you.

*We offer orthopedic and advanced surgical care with Dr. Calvin Kobluk, BSc, BSA, DVM, DVSc, Diplomate ACVS. He is a board certified surgeon that will travel to our clinic for surgeries that we cannot perform ourselves.

Please note that all patients must be examined within 3 months of desired surgical date. This ensures that pets are healthy and safe to undergo anesthesia. Surgeries are scheduled pending available surgical staff members. This means that emergency surgeries or urgent surgeries are not guaranteed. You may be referred to another surgical center if your pet needs urgent help.
