Our Cat & Dog Surgery Process

Your pet will be in good hands with our compassionate veterinary teams, who will ensure that you and your pet feel comfortable and cared for every step of the way.

 

Initial Health Assessment

Initial Health Assessment

A Pet Wellness Exam is required within two months of your pet’s surgery (or when recommended by your veterinarian) to make sure they are in good health and will tolerate anesthesia well. Blood work, x-rays, or an ultrasound may be also recommended prior to surgery (for an additional cost).

Detailed Surgical Plan

Detailed Surgical Plan

Your veterinarian will make a plan for your pet’s surgery based on your pet’s individual history and needs, the surgical procedure taking place, and your pet’s expected recovery.

Anesthesia and Monitoring

Anesthesia and Monitoring

During your pet’s surgery, they will be under anesthesia and will not feel any pain. Our veterinary care teams work together to monitor your pet closely during the entire procedure.

Performing the Surgery

Performing the Surgery

Each surgical procedure will have its own protocol, based on best practices, ensuring your pet’s comfort and safety.

Post-Surgery Care

Post-Surgery Care

Your veterinarian will provide a post-surgery plan for your pet that may include medications such as antibiotics, anti-nausea, and pain relievers. Procedures requiring sutures may need to be removed at a recheck visit after the surgery. Detailed post operative instructions will be communicated to you as well as any signs to look for.

Veterinary Surgery Service Breakdown

Depending on where you live, our veterinarians can perform a number of routine surgical procedures for pets, providing a continuity of care. Your pet will be anesthetized  during surgery and will be prescribed medication for pain

Spay & Neuter Surgery

Prevent unwanted litters and certain health issues with a pet spay or neuter surgery.

Dental Surgery

Our veterinarians are skilled in dental cleanings and dental surgeries, including extractions, when necessary.

Soft Tissue Surgery

Soft tissue surgery is a term that describes most routine veterinary surgeries but does not include orthopedic surgery.

Biopsies

If you or your veterinarian discover a lump or mass on your pet, they may recommend that a biopsy be performed by removing a small tissue sample for further testing.

Mass Removals

If your veterinarian recommends that your pet’s lump, mass, or tumor be removed, they will help you to schedule the procedure. During a mass removal, your veterinarian or specialist will surgically remove the mass and possibly some surrounding tissue.

Laceration Repair

If your pet has a wound that requires stitches, then your veterinarian may be able to perform a laceration repair under anesthesia or heavy sedation.

ACL Repair Surgery

What is known as ACL surgery for humans is actually called CCL (cranial cruciate ligament) surgery in pets. If your veterinarian recommends CCL or TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) repair surgery for your cat or dog, they will evaluate if they can perform the surgery and in some cases will refer you to an orthopedic surgeon.

Eye Surgery

Common eye surgeries for pets include cherry eye surgery, cataract surgery, and eye removal. Your veterinarian will determine whether they are the best person to perform your pet’s surgery or if a referral to a veterinary ophthalmologist is necessary.

Cystotomy

Cystotomy is surgery of the bladder, commonly performed to remove bladder stones, or to remove a tumor or blockage. Depending on location, your veterinarian may be able to provide cystotomy services in a BetterVet mobile vehicle, on-site location, or partner hospital.

Ear Hematoma Surgery

Ear hematomas occur when blood accumulates in a pet’s ear flap, creating swelling. Treating an ear hematoma is usually a simple procedure involving making a small incision and draining the fluid under anesthesia.

Mammary Tumor Surgery

Your veterinarian will discuss the size and location of your pet’s mammary tumor(s) with you and make recommendations regarding the best surgical plan for your pet.

Post-Operative Management

After your pet’s surgical procedure, your veterinarian will create a postoperative treatment plan that may include medication for pain, suture care instructions, and follow-up appointments. They will provide detailed instructions for you to follow and let you know or any signs to watch out for.

What Our Clients Say

Review
Genevieve Davis
BetterVet Austin

Amazing experience with Dr. Kingsley and her assistant. She did surgery on one of my cats and it was so convenient to be able to stay home. The prices are similar to using a vet clinic. I will definitely be using her again. With multiple pets it is so much easier to have someone come to me.

"BetterVet" came was great with the dog and removed the Tumor off of tillys back without a hitch. Tilly was calm and less stressed as she would be if she was dropped off at a vet office. We plan on using the service more and will refer them.

BetterVet Austin
"The BetterVet team" have been taking care of my pets for many years. She is incredible! She's an amazing diagnostician and you can tell she cares so deeply about the pets. Her follow-up is very thorough in giving test results and any other follow-up information. The ability to do surgeries right from the mobile van is so convenient for families and their pets! "Our mobile vet" is the absolute best!!!!
Caryn Wegerbauer
BetterVet Eugene
There is a mobile service fee added to the regular visit fee. It’s worth the convenience. They gave treats to ensure my dog was comfortable and it was nice having the appointment right here in our living room. This was just a checkup and shots. My mom had the same company visit her house for a surgery for her cat, and they showed up in a van, conducting the surgery right there in the van. Very convenient.
