Flossmoor Animal Hospital is equipped with state of the art surgical suites and trained veterinarians who perform a wide range of general surgical procedures. Our modern surgical suite is equipped with the latest patient monitoring equipment and fluid pumps.
Our veterinarians will carefully examine every pet prior to surgery. Anesthetic drugs are individually selected for the pet based on the procedure, their age, breed, and health status. We strongly recommend that every patient have pre-anesthetic blood tests to evaluate their internal organ function to ensure the pet is a good candidate for anesthesia.
We have protocols in place to make anesthesia and surgery safer for our patients:
We believe that it’s important to keep a line of communication with you throughout the day of surgery. Our staff will ensure that we have the best contact information when you drop off your pet, and will keep you fully informed about your their surgery, progress, and recovery. If required, the comprehensive pain management plan may include pain medication to be administered at home to keep them as comfortable as possible at home. At the time of discharge, we will explain what you need to know to care for your pet at home.
Please call our office if you have any specific questions regarding hospital protocols or the procedures offered.
