Common Pet Surgeries

Our traveling veterinary surgeons are skilled in routine and elective surgeries. This includes but is not limited to:

Our Process

To determine your pet’s surgical needs, an in-home visit is required within 2 months of the date of surgery or what’s recommended by your doctor. X-rays or abdominal ultrasound may be recommended based on your pet’s individual circumstance. If we move forward with the veterinary surgical procedure, we will need to run pre-operative blood work to make sure your pet is healthy inside and out. Post-surgery medications such as antibiotics, anti-nausea, and pain medication may be prescribed. Procedures requiring sutures may need to be removed at a recheck visit after the surgery. Rest assured that your BetterVet doctor will come up with the best pain management plan to make sure your pet is comfortable. Detailed post operative instructions will be provided when your pet goes home.
