Pre-Surgical Instructions

Patient Preparations

  • Your pet cannot have anything to eat after 9:00 am the night before the procedure. Water should be offered as usual.
  • Bring your pet to the hospital between 8:00 am and 8:30 am for admission. You will be meeting with one of our technicians at this time, who will discuss your pet’s current health status, verify all documents are in order, and answer any additional questions that you may have. Please allow 15-20 minutes for the check-in process.

What To Bring

  • Your signed consent forms and estimate
  • Any medications that need to be administered while here
  • Personal blankets and/or toys may be left with your pet, but they should be labeled to help ensure their safe return

All Documents Needed For Check-In

  • Check-in sheet
  • Consent for anesthesia
  • Consent for dental procedures (only included if your pet is having dental work done)
  • Estimate for anticipated procedures


Please take the time to review and understand each of them. If you have any questions, please contact us prior to the day of the procedure. This will allow the doctor time to contact you if needed.

Scheduling A Pickup Time

Your pet’s technician will be calling you directly after the procedure. At this time, we will be scheduling a discharge appointment. Your appointment time is determined by your pet’s recovery and your convenience.

We look forward to seeing you and your pet! Please do not hesitate to ask ANY questions because we want you to be comfortable with your pet’s condition and quality of care.
