If you've booked in for an operation
Please bring your pet into surgery between 8.30 – 9.00 am on the day of the procedure (unless otherwise specified by the vet or nurse).
Our primary concern is always your pet's wellbeing and every effort is made to ensure that the whole procedure is as stress-free as possible for patient and owner.
When your pet is admitted, you will be asked to sign a consent form. Please read it before signing. Please ensure you leave a daytime contact number where we can speak to you if needed.
It is our policy to offer the utmost care for your pets at all times. All anaesthetics are monitored by the attending nurse who is present at all times during the procedure. Modern monitoring is used during the procedure and anaesthetics are chosen to suit the individual animal. We routinely give analgesics (pain-killers) to all pets that have surgery on the day of the operation. An extended course may prescribed, if we anticipate post-operative pain).
All anaesthetic techniques and surgical procedures involve some degree of risk to the animal. In order to protect the welfare of the animals under our care; in the unlikely event of an emergency, or where additional pain relief or sedation may be required, a veterinary surgeon may decide to use medicines that are not authorized in animals. Consent for this is given upon admit. Please ask any staff member if you need any more information or wish to discuss this further.
Do not hesitate to discuss any details of your pet’s planned treatment with the vet or nurse. It may be possible to have other treatments (e.g. nails clipped etc.) under the same anaesthetics.
Payment for operations is expected on collection of your pet. If you are claiming on insurance policies please bring details of your insurance and a claim form at the time of collection.
