Is anesthesia safe for pets?

Yes, you can rest assured that we run extensive tests (specifically bloodwork) to ensure your pet is a good candidate for anesthesia prior to their procedure. The vast majority of our patients do well under anesthesia and our technicians monitor their vital signs all throughout the procedure, as the veterinarian does their surgical work.

How should I prepare my pet for their surgery?

Depending on the procedure your pet will undergo, their age, their diagnosis, or any health condition they may have means that different precautions will need to be taken. Our team will give you all of the instructions you need to help prep your pet for their surgery day. In general, we will ask that you arrive on time for your pet’s scheduled surgery. This is a huge help to our team. Staying on schedule means that other furry friends will get the care they need, and will open us up for any unexpected emergency cases that may come in to the clinic. As well, most patients should not to eat any solid foods the night before their procedure.

What is the right way to care for pets post-operation?

Again, this will all depend on your pet’s unique case. Generally speaking, we ask that you ensure they take all of their necessary medications, eat and drink regularly, as well as attend any post-operative rehab treatments they may need. Paying close attention to your pet and notifying us of any odd behaviors right away will help ensure they recover as quickly and as smoothly as possible.

How much does surgery cost for pets?

Please call us for our latest service rates. There are many factors that come into play when calculating the cost of your pet’s treatment, and a proper consultation is the best way to receive that.

Dear valued clients,

We appreciate your patience and understanding while navigating these past 2 years together. We are pleased to announce our new appointment protocols effective Monday February 28, 2022.

We are now allowing ONE pet parent per appointment to accompany their pet into the clinic for their veterinary appointment. If you would prefer a curbside appointment, please just let us know.

For appointments with our technicians (i.e. injections, suture removal, anal glands, etc.), we ask that you please pay attention to the clinic capacity and if necessary step outside for a few minutes to accommodate the flow of the clinic with capacity restrictions.

We ask that you follow these guidelines to ensure your visit is safe for yourselves, your pet, other clients and our staff:

  • Masks are required while in the clinic
  • If you are unable to wear a mask, we will happily continue to provide you with curbside services
  • Please continue to follow the social distancing guidelines of two meters distance between yourself and other clients or staff
  • ONE pet parent will be allowed inside the clinic for the appointments. If you have children with you, we ask that your appointment remains curbside as this will go past our 3 person limit in the clinic
  • We will allow up to a maximum of 3 clients in the clinic lobby at any one time

    We will continue to watch the guidelines posted from the Alberta government and will update our clients as needed if these protocols are to change.

    Thank you for your continued trust in us. - Your dedicated team at Edgemont Veterinary Clinic
