This is our Surgical Appointment protocol for pets who are booked in for surgical procedures.
Pets Name …………………….
Date of Appointment …………………….
Please arrive at the surgery between 8.30 and 9.00am. One of our nurses will then go through the consent form with you. We then ask you to sign the consent form which gives us permission to carry out the surgical procedure. We will give you the option of having a pre-operative blood test to check that your pet is in the ideal condition for surgery. The cost of the test is £32.70. The test is carried out at the surgery on our blood analyser and providing there is no problem we will go ahead with the procedure. If there is any doubt over the blood test results then we will contact you to discuss the results and our suggested course of action. We will also ask whether you would like your pet to have an extra painkilling injection which is administered during the operation and helps with pain relief in the first 24 hours after the procedure.
Please ensure that your pet does not eat from 6pm the previous evening and that water is withheld from first thing on the morning of the operation.
If you have any questions prior to the operation please do not hesitate to contact us at the surgery.
