We know that going under the knife can be a scary thing. Here at Chino Hills Animal Hospital, we want to assure you that our surgery patients are in good hands and treated with the highest level of compassion and care throughout the entire process. We are always available to answer any questions you may have regarding a surgical procedure and the after-care process.
Surgeries are scheduled Mon-Sat and performed mid-morning to early afternoon. Owners should drop off their pet between 7:00am-8:00am the day of surgery. Pets are eligible for procedures if they have received an examination within the past 30 days and are current on vaccines*.
Day of Surgery
Pets are examined by the surgeon in the morning, pulse-monitored throughout surgery, and attended by a technician with a Bedjet climate controller for a smooth post-op recovery. All pets will receive a pain-management injection right after surgery in order to wake up peacefully and with little to no pain.
When it’s time to pick up their pet, owners will receive detailed aftercare instructions from a surgery technician as well as a discharge sheet and labeled medications.
Sutures will be removed 12-14 days after surgery and is included in your initial cost. We care about our patient’s healing process and welcome owners to bring their pet earlier if they are concerned about the appearance of the surgery site, at no additional charge.
*We require all dogs to be current on Rabies, Bordetella and DA2PP and cats to be current on FVRCP, so your pet isn’t at risk of exposure to viruses, or exposing others, while here for a procedure.
