We are all pet owners. We understand how stressful it can be when your pet needs to have an operation. Our team will  ensure your pet’s surgical procedure is as stress free and comfortable as possible.


Before surgery:  

If your pet is a dog, wash them the day before surgery as they are unable to be washed after until the sutures are removed.  
Do not give your pet food  after 10pm the night before the operation - THEY MUST BE FASTED 10 HOURS PRIOR TO SURGERY
(with the exception of rabbits)Water is fine for them to have.

We ask if possible, to please take your dog for a short toilet walk the morning of surgery, so that they are more comfortable during their stay.  
A blood test may be performed prior to surgery to check vital organ function. This will be discussed with you prior to the procedure.  
Our vet will perform a thorough physical examination before administering an anaesthetic.  
Some pets will require intravenous fluid support during surgery. This will be discussed with you prior to the procedure.  


Admission for surgery is between 8am-9.30am. On arrival, one of our friendly veterinary nurses will go through an anaesthetic consent form with you and ask you a series of questions regarding your pets health & medical history.
Once you leave, our veterinarian will perform a health check by taking your pet’s vital signs to determine their health condition before surgery. We have the facilities to perform a pre-anaesthetic blood test for total peace of mind.

General anaesthesia will be administered by our vet surgeon and surgery is performed under close observation from the team of qualified and experienced nursing staff. Our nurses will monitor your pet during surgery along with the use of specialised equipment. This equipment monitors your pet’s heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation level, respiratory rate and temperature.


Pick up times will vary depending on the procedure and your pet's recovery time.
Pick up times often fall between 1pm and 5pm.

On discharge one of our veterinarians or veterinary nurses will explain all the aftercare information you will need to care for your pet at home.
