- No food from 8.00 pm the evening before your pet’s appointment (allow water overnight.)
- Bring him/her to the clinic between 8.00 am-9.00 am that appointment morning. Earlier admittance times may be arranged, please check with reception when booking your appointment.
- Please allow a few minutes at the clinic to sign a consent form and leave all daytime contact phone numbers.
- All pets that are scheduled for a GA will receive a basic (but essential) pre-anaesthetic blood test. On occasions it may be preferable to perform a more comprehensive blood test panel. Our staff will advise you and indicate costs.
- All our cat and dog neuters and spays include an injection to relieve pain in the immediate postoperative period. For bitch speys and dog neuters we recommend additional non-sedating, long acting pain relief, to minimize discomfort for the next 24 hours.
- Please telephone the clinic between 1.00 pm-3.00 pm to check when your pet will be ready to go home – most routine procedures are discharged between 4.00 pm-5.30 pm, but for some procedures the veterinarian may ask you to make a time so that the treatment can be explained. We are open until 7.00 pm weekdays.
- After a general anesthetic your pet will be aware and able to walk but still a little ‘sleepy’, so please keep him/her confined overnight and only feed a small amount that evening.
- Stitches need to be removed from cat and dog speys and dog neuters 10-12 days after surgery. There are no stitches in a cat neuter. There is no charge for the removal of the stitches but please book a time at reception.
Please note that accounts are payable when you collect your pet.
