PET SURGERY OVERVIEW
At Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic of Luling, we recognize that a pet’s surgery can be a stressful time for you and your pet. Here’s what you can expect with the surgery:
- The night before surgery, we’ll ask that you don’t feed your pet after 10 pm
- On surgery day, you’ll check your pet in for surgery at Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic between 7 and 8 am
- After check-in, your pet’s veterinarian will discuss the procedure with you and answer any questions you have
- To ensure we have a full picture of your pet’s health, a pre-anesthetic blood test will be performed
- Your pet will be sedated and/or anesthetized, and then the procedure will begin
- We’ll update you throughout the day on your pet’s condition
- Once the procedure is complete, your pet will be sent home with care instructions and (if needed) pain medication

Chisholm Trail Vet Clinic in Luling is the best... They've always taken good care of all of our animals, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a vet.

I was out of town when my dog got hurt. I had the dog sitter take him to Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic of Luling, then called them to alert he was on his way. They took great care of him and called me several times to keep me updated on how he was doing. I really appreciated their care.

The office staff are extremely friendly and professional. Drop off and pick up times are very reasonable and they take the time to make sure all of your questions are answered and you feel comfortable. All that and they are, above all, wonderful with the animals in their care. They are very knowledgeable (which is obviously what you want!) and thorough.
