Pre-operation instructions

Just as you would for yourself if you needed an operation,
it's important to prepare your pet for surgery to help with
the recovery process.

These instructions are general in nature and may not be applicable for patients with complex medical or surgical needs. Please contact us, a few days prior to surgery if possible, to confirm your pet's individual pre-surgical requirements.

  • Please ensure your pet is clean.  It may be necessary to wash your pet a few days before surgery.
  • Fast from food 12 hours before surgery. No food after 8.30pm the night before the surgery.
  • If an ultrasound is scheduled then fasting should be for 18 hours as a full stomach often interferes with the scan.
  • Fasting from water is not necessary.
  • Please bring your pet in between 8.00am – 9.30am the day of the procedure.  Later arrangements can be made.
  • For convenience, if you find it difficult to get in first thing in the morning, admission the night before can be arranged. There is no additional cost.
  • Please allow 10 minutes in the morning to complete the consent form and the admission process.
  • Please mention any medications (even home supplements) your pet may be taking and whether they have had that morning's medication.
  • Most procedures are day procedures. You can expect your pet to go home later the same day.
  • The surgical nurse will call after the procedure to book a discharge time.
  • Depending on the procedure, a 50% deposit may be required the morning of the procedure.
  • Please note full payment of veterinary fees is required on discharge your pet.

There are a number of measures we take during and after surgery to minimise risk to your loved pet and ensure their surgery is as safe as possible. To learn more about this see a day in hospital.
