Do not give food after midnight the night before the operation. Please ensure water is available until the morning.
Please try to allow your pet to toilet in the morning. When you bring your pet in to us please ensure that cats are in a suitable carrier and dogs are kept on a lead.
At admittance you will be asked to confirm your details, provide a contact telephone number and sign the consent form. If we have not seen your pet recently then the vet will carry out a pre-operative check beforehand to ensure they are fit for the procedure (this is free of charge).
If your pet is on any current medication, we will check with you on the morning of the operation as to when these were last given. If you are unsure as to whether to give any medication, then please contact us beforehand.
Pre-operative blood testing can be arranged for your pet and we especially recommend it for cats and dogs over the age of 8. The blood test will give us information on the function of your pet’s kidney & liver and therefore improve the safety of the procedure.
If you are worried about any aspect of your pet’s procedure, then please pop in or call us and speak to either one of our vets or nurses.
