 PREPARING FOR SURGERY 
Day of Consultation

The purpose of a specialist consultation with Dr. Maguire is to help investigate the problem and to determine what action to take. Dr. Maguire will evaluate your pet and speak with you personally before any procedures. If your pet is warded and in critical condition a same day consultation and surgery may be most appropriate. If your pet requires an elective orthopedic procedure it is possible that surgery is scheduled on a later date.

Your primary care veterinarian will help determine which would be the most appropriate type of consultation and will assist you with the scheduling.

Day of Surgery

 

Preparation leading up to surgery will vary from patient to patient. Most patients will need to be fasted after the evening meal on the day prior to surgery. Water can usually still be offered until the morning of the procedure. If the patient is receiving oral medications, they should be withheld the morning of surgery unless instructed otherwise by your veterinarian.

 POST-SURGICAL CARE 

Post-surgical care instructions vary greatly and will depend on the type of surgery your pet has received.  Written care instructions will be provided to you by Beecroft Animal Specialist Services. If further clarification is required we recommend you contact your primary care veterinarian as your first point of contact. 

Most routine follow-ups will be performed by your primary care veterinarian. Re-evaluations by Dr. Maguire may be necessary depending on the surgery performed and your pet’s recovery – these too will be performed at your primary veterinarian’s office.
