- What is the pre-anesthetic blood screening?
This is a blood test that is run here in the clinic prior to surgery. It tests the organ functions and blood counts of your pet. The pre-anesthetic blood screening is done to assure safety during surgery and the ability to heal following surgery.
- How long do the sutures stay in after my pet's surgery?
Sutures are removed 7 to 14 days postoperatively.
- Is it a good idea to let my pet have at least one litter?
No, there is no advantage to letting your pet have one litter. Spaying and neutering are important and necessary medical procedures that enhance the quality of your pet's life. Not only does spaying and neutering have positive effects on your pets’ health, it’s also vital to controlling the pet over population problem.
