Pre-Surgical Preparation

  • Food: Please ensure that your pet does not eat any food after 9PM the night before surgery.
    Water: Your pet is allowed to have water up until 8AM the morning of surgery.
  • If you already have a buster collar, please bring it with you at the time of the exam. We will ensure it is the appropriate size to prohibit your pet from reaching the surgical site.
  • For your pet’s safety, and the safety of others, please bring a leash for all dogs and a carrier for small dogs and all cats.

  • A pillowcase can serve as an impromptu carrier if necessary.
