Cats & Dogs Preparation Before Operation
Prior to being admitted for surgery we require cats and dogs (over 4 months of age) are starved from 8pm the night before, they can still have access to water up until the time of admission.
Please take dogs out for a walk before bringing them to the surgery so they are able to open their bowels and pass urine. We advise that all pets are up to date with vaccinations and parasite control for infection control reasons within the hospital.
