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 Clients,

With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.

1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!

As you can imagine, we have a significant backlog of surgeries and wellness/vaccine exams to catch up on and we will be working hard over the next several weeks to do just that. We want to thank everyone in advance for your patience while we work through this. Although restrictions have been lifted, our health and safety protocols have not. It is important we continue to follow the guidelines set out by Worksafe Alberta and social distance our large team as much as possible. This means although we can offer these elective services, we are doing much fewer during the day then we were pre-COVID.
