Your pet’s comfort and pain during these surgical procedures are of great concern to us. That’s why, to avoid any unnecessary distress or discomfort, we administer anesthesia during veterinary surgeries and surgical procedures. Before administering anesthesia, we undertake a complete physical exam and preanesthetic blood testing to ensure that a fever, kidney/liver damage, anemia, infection, or other serious organ system problems will not cause any surgical or anesthetic complications. For more information on our hospital policies regarding anesthesia, check out our Surgical FAQs page.

It is natural to feel uneasy when your pet undergoes veterinary surgery. However, the thorough pre- and post-operative procedures at Piedmont Veterinary Clinic ensure that your pet will not leave our dedicated care until he or she is ready to return home.

When you bring in your pet for veterinary surgery at Piedmont Veterinary Clinic, please allot 5-10 minutes to fill out all of the necessary paperwork and participate in a brief pre-op consultation with our veterinarians or other members of the veterinary staff.

Following more advanced pet surgeries, our veterinary staff will constantly monitor your pet’s vitals and maintain an IV drip until his or her condition has normalized. After the surgical procedure has been completed, our staff will always keep you apprised of your pet’s progress and share when you should be able to bring your pet home.

Our on-site, full-service pet pharmacy will meet all of your pet’s post-operative medication and prescription needs. We offer simple veterinary prescription refills in-person, by phone, and online through Pet Portal, an online service providing secure access to all of your pet’s health and prescription information.

Many pet owners choose to have veterinary staff perform other minor procedures while their pet is under anesthesia, such as dentistry, ear cleaning, or identification microchip implantation. If performing these extra services interests you, simply inform a member of our veterinary staff ahead of time.
