Frequently Asked Questions
Are you accepting new patients?
Do I need to bring my pet for an examination before surgery?
Yes, you will need to make an appointment at our clinic.
During this preventive examination, our veterinarian will discuss the preparation for the operation, the procedure plan, the costs, the risks and the recovery.
Do you perform emergency operations?
Yes, our experienced veterinarian – Dr. Zdravko Dimitrov, also performs emergency operations if necessary.
How much do surgeries cost?
Each pet requires unique care and each operation differs in price.
Our veterinarian will provide an estimate after examining your pet.
Will my pet be anesthetized?
Yes, your pet will be anesthetized for his surgery, but some small biopsies and mass removals can be done with sedation and local anesthetics.
What precautions are observed during surgery?
For all procedures requiring anesthesia or sedation, we will monitor your pets:
- Heart rate
- Respiratory rate
- Gum color
- Oxygen levels
- Hydration status
Will my pet be able to return to normal activities after surgery?
You will probably need to limit your pet’s activity for 10-14 days after the procedure.
For dogs, this means short, controlled leash walks lasting about 5-10 minutes so that they can meet their basic physiological needs. For cats, we recommend that they do not jump or play.
If you find it difficult to keep your pet under control, we can prescribe some sedatives to help him fall asleep for the first few days.
Will I need to bring my pet back after surgery to be examined?
Depending on the type of surgical procedure and treatment process, your pet may need to be re-examined.
