Common Inquiries

All the Answers You Need

Do I need to bring my pet back for the 8 week recheck?

Yes. Most orthopedic surgeries take about 8 weeks to heal. Some may take longer. At your pet's 8 week recheck, Dr. Owen will determine if the bone is healed and if your pet is able to resume normal activity. Also, this appointment is included in the cost of most of our procedures, so there will be no charge unless additional medications are required or requested. 

How Do I Prepare For My Pet's Appointment?

Please provide a safe and secure place for your pet to heal after surgery. Crate rest is ideal, however if this is not an option, please confine the pet to a room where they cannot have access to furniture that they can jump on or floors that they can slip on. A sling may be beneficial in helping you lift the pet when they are getting up and going up or down stairs. 

Please do not feed your pet after 10pm the night before the procedure but water is fine until the time that you arrive.
