Surgical Services with Dr. Terry L. Dew:

Before we schedule your pet for surgery, you will have a consultation appointment with Dr. Dew.

During this appointment, he will talk to you about your pet’s medical history and current condition, examine your pet, review any radiographs or medical records you bring to the appointment and offer an initial (or confirmation) diagnosis.

He will review options available for your pet’s condition and discuss potential outcomes, prognosis, and post-surgical rehabilitation.

If you decide to proceed with surgery after this initial consultation, the procedure will usually be performed the same day as the consultation appointment and your pet will stay overnight at our facility.
