Your pet should have NO FOOD after
8:00pm the night prior to the scheduled surgical appointment.
Your pet is allowed to have water overnight, however please remove
water first thing in the morning. Rabbits and small pocket pets
are an exception to this rule, they require little or no fasting,
we will advise you when booking of their specific needs.
We request that you bring your pet into the hospital between
8:00am and 9:00am. We prefer to have admission times booked to
ensure admissions run smoothly and wait times are reduced. If
it is more suitable, you may leave your pet with us between 4:00pm
- 7:30pm the night before. There is no extra charge for this overnight
stay. We will organise fasting of your pet if they stay overnight
Please Note: All patients must be up-to-date with vaccination. If your pet has not been vaccinated with us here, please bring a vaccine card as evidence of current vaccination status. If your pet is overdue, they can have their vaccination given prior to the surgery day or on the day of surgery (normal vaccination costs will be incurred).
Please allow 10 minutes for the Admission procedure when dropping your pet off for surgery. This allows us to confirm contact details and discuss any questions regarding the surgery. It is important that you are contactable at all times on the phone number(s) you confirm with us.
As a general rule, your pet should be able to go home between 4.00pm and 7.00pm on the day of surgery. Please telephone after 3.00pm to find out how your pet is progressing. Some surgeries require your pet to stay overnight following the procedure. We will inform you if this is the case.
