The veterinarians at All Creatures Veterinary Clinic, share the ideals that guide our surgical manners. Acknowledging that the surgical endeavor is a continually changing field which requires a certain art along with science, we strive to put to good use our collective years of patient care and experience. This commitment to patient care and the pet owners’ vital part in the “human-animal bond” requires careful planning and preparation.
We also honor our obligation to discuss the mandated Informed Consent directive where the doctor and pet owner understand the pros and cons of the proposed surgery. For that reason we must ask to meet with the pet owner during the surgical intake. Together we will need to specifically establish what procedure or procedures will be requested on the day of surgery. Details given over the phone or in person weeks before the surgery must be updated or reaffirmed on the day of surgery.
