Improving Your Pet’s Well-being with Dog and Cat Surgery in Groveport
Most, if not all, pets require surgery at least once in their lives, whether it’s a routine spay or neuter, or something more complex, like a foreign body removal. Regardless of the procedure, our veterinary team at Groveport Canal Animal Hospital will give you all the information you need to feel confident about putting your dog or cat through surgery.

What to Expect for Your Dog or Cat’s Surgery
We thoroughly examine all our patients before allowing them to undergo any surgical procedure. For senior pets or pets with chronic health conditions, pre-anesthetic testing is required to ensure that anesthesia will be safe for them. To avoid complications during your pet’s procedure, please take away their food and water approximately 12 hours prior to their surgery.
Your pet will be attended throughout their surgery by a registered veterinary technician who will monitor their EKG, temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure. In recovery, they’ll be given warm blankets and will be monitored by our staff members throughout the day. Once your pet can stand up and walk on their own, we will contact you. When you come to pick your pet up, we go over home care instructions and answer any questions you have about your pet’s recovery in the following days.
Surgery Cancellation Policy
Effective September 22, 2023 – To ensure the efficient scheduling of surgical appointments, we kindly ask that you provide us with at least 48 hours’ notice if you need to cancel or reschedule. Please note that a cancellation fee of 10% of the high end of the estimate or $150, whichever is greater, will be applied to your account for failure to show up for a scheduled surgical appointment or cancel/reschedule with less than 24 hours’ notice.
We understand that emergencies and unexpected situations may arise, and we will do our best to accommodate you in such cases. However, repeated cancellations and no-shows can affect our ability to provide timely care to all our patients.
To avoid missed appointments, we offer reminder calls, emails, and text messages as a courtesy. However, it is ultimately your responsibility to keep track of your appointments and notify us in a timely manner if you need to cancel or reschedule.
If a procedure is cancelled by the veterinarian as a medical necessity, there is no charge or fee for cancellation.
