Important: Surgery Candidate Protocols

 
 
 

We would like to update everyone on some running and new protocols for the clinic. We have set in place specific factors to evaluate our patients for surgery. We strive to ensure each pet goes into surgery with not only the best post-operative outcome, but the pet’s overall health in mind. This is key when performing our individual exams for our surgery candidates. We have comprised a list of situations where surgery might NOT be ideal for a pet and should be discussed prior to surgery. As always, we encourage you to reach out to us prior to the scheduled surgery date if you have any questions about any of the listed below or other concerns. The following are considered situational and case by case for each patient and should be discussed with surgical staff:

  • Any coughing, sneezing, vomiting or diarrhea in the last 2 weeks
  • Ocular or nasal discharge
  • Any litter mates or pets in the home with extreme illness or sudden death
  • Any recent hospitalizations or vet visits other than wellness
  • Severe flea infestation or parasites where anemia could be an issue
  • Current or chronic skin issues
  • Chronic upper respiratory infections or wheezing
  • Any abnormal, heavy, or prolonged heat cycles
  • Any pet that is post-partum should not be nursing for at least 2 weeks prior to surgery
  • Heart murmurs
  • Any known diagnosis of medical condition should be discussed to avoid anesthetic or drug interaction issues (example: thyroid disease, anxiety, Cushing’s)
  • The pet's age and body condition score will also be evaluated (overweight or emaciated pets are not considered good surgery candidates)
  • Please inform staff of any medication given in the last 2 months outside of flea/heartworm prevention

  • The following are NOT surgical candidates and surgery should be rescheduled for a later date or performed at your RDVM:
  • Any dog currently receiving heartworm treatment (this includes slow kill or adulticide treatment) - this increases risks of pulmonary emboli. Surgery should only be done with a negative heartworm test post treatment.
  • Any pet with a history of seizures should have surgery at a full-service clinic, as we have limited drug protocols
  • Any pet with recent toxin ingestion or hit by car
  • No female that is actively lactating
  • Any pet with SEVERE dental disease
  • Any pet that has had any type of antibiotic should have completed last dose 2 weeks prior to surgery

  • *Ultimately surgery is at the Veterinarian’s discretion*

    In the spring of 2005, the Board of Directors with the Carroll County Humane Society decided that the next important goal of the organization was to start a spay and neuter clinic. On April 4, 2006, CCHS was accepted into the Humane Alliance NSNRT program and started working on the clinic project. We then opened our doors in 2007 and have successfully continued to help the community one pet at a time.

    Preventing Euthanasia by Spay/Neuter is What We Do.The Fix

    WHAT WE DO?

     
     
     

    There is nothing more important to us than preventing unnecessary euthanasia of pets in shelters across the Southeast and beyond.

     
    The animal shelters in the West Georgia area are overwhelmed with unwanted animals and consequently have high euthanasia rates. The purpose of the clinic is to attack pet overpopulation by focusing on the root of the problem. There are too many animals having unwanted litters, resulting in homeless pets ending at up shelters where they risk encountering diseases or being euthanized.
