Inside Pets In Stiches
We’ll greet you and your pet in our reception area and review your admission paperwork. The adult owner of your pet must be present at admissions unless you’ve made prior arrangements with Pets In Stitches.
Meet and Greet
During the admission process, we’ll meet you and your pet in a friendly environment. Your pet will receive lots of love and affection. It only takes a few minutes to check in if you have your forms completed in advance. Then, you can be on your way.
Dr. Rastetter Meets Your Pet
Your pet gets tons of attention and reassurance during the brief checkup to make sure your pet is ready for surgery. If your pet shows signs of illness or if there are any concerns, surgery may be postponed and you’ll be contacted to pick up your pet. This would only be considered if it’s in the best interest of your pet.
All Sizes Welcome
We have the equipment needed to handle pets of all sizes. If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Our multi-purpose area for laboratory, pharmacy, and preparing surgery packs. You can see Melinda working with the autoclave, which sterilizes surgical packs for your pet’s use. We’ve nicknamed it “Monster” since it’s the largest tabletop autoclave available! After being sterilized in the autoclave, surgery packs are stored and ready for use. Each pack has an assortment of surgical instruments so the veterinary surgeon will have everything they need for performing a safe and efficient surgery on your pet.
Individual Medical Trays
We make sure your pet gets exactly the right medicines and vaccines they need by providing a separate medical tray for each pet. These medicines may be administered before or after surgery, as appropriate. We take the extra step of giving every pet regional pain blocks in order to minimize discomfort.
Your pet will be connected to a hospital-grade monitor during the surgery that has its visual and audio reports continually monitored by the Pets in Stitches staff. Even though the surgery will likely last less than 20 minutes, we want to ensure your pet is safe and never in any distress during the surgery.
