Before You Arrive

.

Please schedule your surgical appointment with our office.  We do most elective surgeries on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  On the day of surgery please plan to bring your pet in between 7:00 and 9:00 am.

Getting Ready For Surgery

.

If your pet is only having routine, annual or pediatric, healthy pet well care procedures and nothing else, then you may feed and give medications as normal. 

.

If your pet is having any anesthesia, dental or oral procedures, surgery, imaging (x-rays or ultrasound), or any other laboratory diagnostic procedures or treatments, then unless you have been advised by the doctor to proceed differently, you should:

.

Remove all food after 8 pm and do not feed in the morning. Your pet should have a stomach that is empty of food upon arrival. Food in the stomach and intestinal tract may sometimes create unnecessary risks during anesthesia, can skew laboratory results, and obscure things we wish to see during imaging.

.

Leave water down and available. We do not want your pet coming in for surgery already dehydrated.

.

Give any medications your pet is taking on time. If you need to give it with a treat, you may do so, just use the smallest amount of treat you can. 

.

If the medication won't be due until after your pet's arrival at the hospital, we will give it here (see below). This is extremely important as many tests and procedures are based upon the timeliness of medications.

.

Bring any medications your pet is currently taking. Do not bring heartworm or flea medications.
