Please read carefully all the information. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us.On your pets’ surgery day, we require you to review and sign an Authorization/Estimate Form — which allows you to choose optional services.
We require a phone number(s) where you can be reached surgery day. If any questions arise, the doctor may contact you at the number you provide on the Authorization Form.
The night before your pet’s surgery…
• Withhold all food and treats after 9:00 pm.
• Water may be left down after this time period.
• If you are currently administering any medications, vitamins, and/or injections, Withhold the morning doses unless otherwise instructed by the doctor.
Please make arrangements for your pet to be dropped off on the morning of scheduled surgery before 8:30 unless other arrangements have been made in advance. At time of drop off, our team will be happy to answer any questions/concerns.
Our veterinary technician will escort your pet to the surgical prepping area to wait for their surgery. If you have elected any of the recommended blood tests, our technician will collect all blood samples and tests prior to surgery.
You are welcome to check up on your pet’s status, however, we request that you allow plenty of time for your pet’s procedure to be done. At this time, we will be able to give you an idea of when your pet may be discharged. When you arrive to take your pet home, the receptionist will bill you out and depending on the surgery performed; the veterinary technician will go over all discharge orders. If you do not understand any instructions, please do not hesitate to ask them to go over them one more time.
We hope surgery day will be a pleasant experience. Remember, our team knows surgery can be an anxious time, and we are always available to answer any and all questions concerning the upcoming procedure.
We look forward to serving you and your pet on the upcoming surgery day and in years to come.
