What to Expect
Please know that the MedVet Surgery team is committed to providing the best, most appropriate care for your pet in partnership with your family veterinarian.
Surgery is not performed until we discuss and agree on the details, expectations and possible outcomes of the procedure, as well as potential risks, costs and required home care. Preoperative preparation will also be discussed in detail.
