Are you feeling uneasy about your pet’s upcoming surgery?

Bringing a family member in for an operation isn’t easy. At Franklin Veterinary Clinic, we know exactly what you’re going through because we’re pet owners too. Rest assured that we’ll do whatever it takes to make your loved one’s procedure as stress-free as possible.

Pre-Surgical Care

Our surgical care begins with comprehensive preoperative screening, which helps reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We’ll also develop a safe and effective protocol to keep your pet both comfortable and pain-free – before, during and following surgery.


Whether routine or complex, your pet’s surgical procedure will be our top priority. We’ll be there to answer your questions, set your mind at ease and help keep your pet calm and relaxed all from the moment you arrive.

Once safely sedated, our team will perform the surgery as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated support staff will be there to assist with surgery and closely monitor your pet’s wellbeing. 

After Care

After surgery, we’ll gently relocate your pet to our recovery area where our staff will continue to provide comfort and reassurance. 

When you arrive to pick up your pet, we will go over our aftercare instructions, including a customized plan for at-home pain management.
