Pre and Post Surgery Questsions

Payment for services is due on the day of surgery. To keep costs low, we accept Cash Only.

Pre-Surgical Instructions

 

 

  • IF YOUR PET HAS BEEN ILL WITHIN TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO ITS SURGICAL APPOINTMENT, WE WILL NOT PERFORM THE SURGERY.  
  • Please take your pet's food away at 8:00 pm the night before surgery.
  • Water should be taken as soon as you wake up on the morning of surgery.
  • Please bring your pet in between 7:30 am and 9:30 am on the morning of your appointment.
  • You will need to check in at the front desk and sign your release form for surgery.
  • Your pet will be taken to the back area of our clinic where it will be weighed and given a pre-anesthetic drug. It will be placed in a secure kennel and will wait there, listening to music, until it is time for its surgical procedure.

Post-Surgical Instructions

You will be given a separate set of post-surgical instructions to refer to. This list is extra information.

  • You will pick your pet up anytime between 3:00 pm-5:00 pm.
  • Be sure to put a deposit down on an E-collar to prevent your pet from licking at its incision. That is a $5.00 refundable deposit.
  • We recommend pain medicine for all pets, but it is not a requirement. Please request pain medicine upon check out and we will gladly prepare it for you!
  • Stiches are dissolvable, do not let your pet lick it its incision. Your pet will not need to have these stitches removed.
