Surgery is an important part of every pet’s long-term health program. We recommend routine spays and neuters for all our patients, but our hospital in Kenosha, WI can provide other surgeries as well for the benefit of your dog or cat’s health. While we understand that the expectation of putting your pet through surgery might be stressful, we can assure you that safety is always our highest priority. Your veterinarian will be glad to sit down with you to answer your questions, explain what decisions you will have to make, and let you know what to expect when your pet is ready to be sent home to recover.

Is My Pet Going to be in Pain
After Their Surgery?
At Kenosha Animal Hospital, we do everything we can to minimize pain after surgery. Naturally, there will be some discomfort when they awaken from the anesthesia. To alleviate this discomfort, we will send you and your pet home with prescribed oral medication. Because cats are more difficult to medicate, we will administer a pain relief injection right before their procedure. If necessary, we can send cats home with oral medication as well.
Providing Additional Services
When your pet is under anesthesia, this can be a convenient time for us to provide other, minor services. This can include a teeth cleaning, ear cleaning, microchipping, and a nail trim. Be sure to let us know ahead of time which services your pet will need during their visit.
Please contact us at (262) 658-3533 if you have any questions about our surgery policies, procedures, and more.
