Common surgeries, uncommon standards
We are proud to promise that your pet is in good hands, providing top of the line surgery procedures, in house by our highly trained team.
Many pets will undergo surgeries in their lifetimes.
Our Sploot veterinary team handles a wide range of surgical procedures in house. We regularly help pet parents with planned procedures, such as spays and neuters, and urgent, unexpected procedures, such as foreign body removals.
Consultation appointments are necessary before operating on your pet, no matter the surgery, to ensure your pet’s safety and guide you through the process. During this consultation appointment, our veterinarian runs blood tests, learns more about your pet’s history, and does a full physical exam to ensure they are healthy enough for surgery. Plus, they will give you a full breakdown of surgery day + pricing, no hidden fees involved
We get it pet parent - surgery can be overwhelming! Our surgery specialists would love to answer any questions you may have about the procedure, estimated cost, and more.
You are in good hands
When it comes to our furry friends, surgery or any other invasive procedure can seem scary – but it doesn’t have to be. Our trained veterinary professionals are prepared to help your pet with any same-day surgery they may need. We’ll walk you through the process every step of the way, from preparing your pet beforehand, updates during surgery, and personalized post-op care, including:
Frequently Asked Questions
Does my pet need a pre-surgery consultation?
Yes. A pre-op appointment is crucial to ensure a successful surgery or dental procedure. During this appointment, our veterinarians will walk you through the procedure, and set expectations for your pet's surgery or dental care. The veterinarian will also discuss the risks associated with the procedure, costs, and post-operative recovery. Lastly, during this pre-op appointment, your pet will receive a full and thorough exam by one of our veterinarians including bloodwork. This allows us to discuss informed recommendations and precautions to make sure your pet stays safe.
How much does my pet’s surgery cost?
The cost of your surgery depends on the procedure that will be performed as well as other factors that are specific to your pet (for example, size of pet). Please reach out to our care team, who can provide a preliminary estimate of the costs. You will receive a more accurate estimate after our medical team has examined your pet during a pre-op consultation.
How do I prepare for my pet’s surgery?
Make sure your pet does not eat any food after 9:30pm the night before surgery. Water is fine at all times. If you have any questions about the procedure itself, recovery, etc. reach out to us. No question is off-limits.Create a safe and quiet environment for your pet to return to while they are recovering from anesthesia, especially in the case that exercise restriction is necessary (setting up baby gates or pens, closing off the staircase, separating pets from siblings at home, etc).
Do you accept insurance?
Yes. We accept all pet insurances for surgery as well as other medical procedures.
How long will the procedure take / when will I be able to pick up my pet?
You will be able to pick up your pet the day of surgery. Our team will provide you updates throughout the day of the procedure and will let you know what time to come and pick up your pet. The pickup time will vary based on the type of procedure your pet went through (e.g., spays and neuters are usually on the faster side, whereas dental procedures usually take a little longer) and your pet's individual recovery time, as determined by your veterinarian.
What should I expect after surgery?
Our care team will call you right after your pet wakes up. Our veterinarian will share with you specific home treatment instructions once you pick up your pet, such as guidance on meals, activity restrictions, care in the days following the surgery, and medications. Your veterinarian may also schedule a recheck (if necessary). Should you have any questions, please feel free to call or text us. After surgery, most animals are groggy or unstable and some pets are not quite themselves for up to 24-48 hours following anesthesia. Signs such as pacing, panting, whimpering, mild lethargy, and/or restlessness may be noticed. Your veterinarian will advise you as to what symptoms are potentially cause for concern and more immediate follow up care.
What is the “free surgery consultation” offer?
Currently, we are offering a free surgery consultation to all pet parents (new and existing). If you come in for a surgery consultation for your pet, and choose to go ahead and book the surgery with Sploot, we will apply the cost of the consultation toward the surgery visit. All you need to do is mention the offer at the time of booking the consultation; we will not be able to retroactively apply consultation exam fees toward surgeries.
