Veterinary Surgery in Edmond, OK

Compassionate Surgical Care for Your Pets

When your pet’s health needs require surgery, trust the Edmond veterinarians at Family Pet Hospital for compassionate care. Surgery can be scary and overwhelming for both you and your pet, but our veterinary team is here to make your experience as comfortable and worry-free as possible. Before your pet’s surgery, we’ll take the time to go over the procedure and answer any questions you might have about the entire surgical process.

If you have any questions or concerns about your pet’s upcoming surgical procedure, please give us a call at (405) 294-1088. We’re happy to put your mind at ease.

Spay & Neuter

Spaying or neutering your pet is one of the best things you can do not only for your pet’s health, but for other pets across our local community. Millions of healthy cats and dogs are euthanized every year because there aren’t enough homes for these pets. The American Human Society recommends spaying or neutering your pets when they are young to prevent adding to the animal homelessness crisis.

More importantly, spaying or neutering your pet has medical and behavioral benefits for your pet that can dramatically improve your pet’s quality of life.

Benefits of spaying or neutering your pet include:

  • Female pets will live longer
  • Female pets won’t go into heat
  • Male pets may be better behaved and are less prone to wandering away
  • Male pets will see a reduction in testicular cancer and prostate problems

In addition to the benefits above, the cost of spaying or neutering your pet pales in comparison to the cost of having to care for a litter of kittens or puppies. Think how many more mouths you’d have to feed! Save yourself, and your pet, from becoming overwhelmed by spaying or neutering your pet when they’re young. We recommend that dogs are spayed or neutered between the ages of six to nine months, while cats can be as young as eight weeks old.

Recovering After Surgery

After your pet has any surgical procedures, it’s important that you follow our Edmond veterinarian’s post-operative instructions. Failure to do so may cause your pet to feel more pain or heal slower.

Tips for a safe recovery:

  • Give your pet a quiet, comfortable space inside to rest
  • Avoid bathing your pet for at least two weeks
  • Moderate your pet’s activity levels; no running or jumping for at least two weeks
  • Inspect your pet’s incision to make sure it’s healing properly
  • Prevent your pet from scratching or licking their incision

If you notice any swelling or redness, or if your pet seems lethargic or loses their appetite, please let us know immediately. We’re here for you and your pet every step of the way.

Let us help you navigate your pet’s surgery. Call us at (405) 294-1088 or contact us online to discuss your pet’s surgical options with our team at Family Pet Hospital.
