The staff are so friendly and helpful! My pets have always been seen in a timely manner and handled with the care I expect. Plus it's not too far from home and I really love that because I'm pretty much late for everything.
Keeping Your Pet Safe Before, During, and After Surgery
A common concern for most pet parents is the safety of their companions. While every surgery has the possibility of complications, at Chicago Drive Veterinary Clinic you can be assured that we do all we can to reduce their probability, including:
- Performing a physical exam and blood testing prior to surgery to lower anesthesia risks
- Carefully monitoring all of your pet’s vital signs with high-end monitoring equipment and an experienced veterinary technician at your pet’s side through the entire procedure
- Keeping your pet warm with soft blankets to prevent hypothermia
- Watching over your pet as they gradually awaken from anesthesia
- Providing them with the appropriate pain medication before, during, and after their surgery
Our Surgery Services
Our veterinary team performs a variety of routine surgeries throughout the week, in addition to as-needed procedures for pets with more urgent health needs.
Ensuring a Healthy Recovery for Your Pet
Pain can slow a pet’s recovery, or even cause other health problems. We’ll send you home with additional pain medications to give your pet so they can recover at home as comfortably as possible. We will also provide you with a handout of instructions to help you manage your pet’s daily needs for the duration of their recovery period. This includes keeping activity to a minimum, monitoring the surgical site, and administering any additional medications provided.
As always, you can contact us directly at (616) 669-0501 if you have any questions or concerns. We’re more than happy to help you!
