Surgical boarding

Surgical Boarding Services

A simple add-on to any spay/neuter or dental procedure to remove surprises and make sure no detail is missed.

  • Pre-Surgery Care:
    • Bath (dogs cannot be groomed up to 7-10 days post-op)
    • Ensuring all pre-surgery protocols are followed (no food night before surgery, etc.)
    • Dedicated staff and on-site vet
  • Post-Surgery Care:
    • Medication administration
    • Monitoring of wound, treatment if needed
    • Around the clock monitoring of your dog – quick response to anything that might arise
    • Individual walks to light exercise and relief until they are ready to socialize

If your dog has been in for surgery, you know how difficult it is to keep them relaxed and calm. In the day or two following surgery, recovery can be high maintenance for pet owners. There are timed medications, monitoring, and oftentimes an e-collar. Your pet’s mood might be different, and they might need a little more than you can give. We know how tough it can be on a caregiver, and we’ve heard your concerns. We can offer you the peace of mind and the opportunity to increase your beloved pet’s standard of care. It’s our hope to relieve you of the worry and extra duties that come with surgeries. That way, when your pet comes home, he’ll be back to his old self again – and will be even more excited to see you!

Our post-surgery recovery program offers an enhanced boarding option that includes medical care during your pet’s recovery from surgery.

We believe in this system, not only because it’s a part of the services we want to offer you as a pet owner, but also because we want to offer a full care package to your pet. Their surgery anxiety and any chance of a negative reaction will be lowered due to comfort with our facilities, associates, and standard of care.

For dogs with special needs, you can be assured that any other necessary medications will be administered, and monitoring for reactions or out of character responses will result in even more individualized care. If there’s an extenuating circumstance, we will communicate with you quickly. Your dog doesn’t need to be off of his or her regular schedule with us because of surgery. It’s all a part of Biscuits & Bath’s Total Wellness Approach.
