  • Procedure

  • Mainstay Veterinary Practice uses state-of-the-art surgical monitoring equipment to monitor your pet’s blood pressure, temperature, heart rate and rhythm during surgery. We provide pain medication for pets before, during, and after surgical procedures. An IV catheter will be placed to administer fluids. Along with shaving the hair at the IV catheter site, we may also shave other areas including the surgical site and monitor sites. Pre-Anesthetic blood work is required for all procedures requiring general anesthesia. Pets will be treated for fleas, ticks or ear mites, if found, as an additional expense. Animals unvaccinated or overdue for Rabies immunization will be vaccinated as an additional expense.

    Today we will perform a surgery to remove your pet’s ovaries and uterus. We will shave the abdomen and place sutures to close the incision. These will be buried under the skin and will dissolve on their own.
