Pre and Post Op Instructions

Before Surgery:

When your pet is scheduled for a surgery appointment we will call you the day before. We do ask that your pet is fasted no food after 6pm, water is ok.

After surgery care:

  • Keep your pet’s activity level to a minimum
  • It takes 10-14 days for your pet to heal after surgery
  • Check the incision daily. During this time the surgery site must stay clean and dry
  • We send dogs home with a cone. Most cats and rabbits do not need a cone
  • After surgery your cat or dog can have a small meal
  • They may have symptoms such as nausea or vomiting, this should resolve by the next morning
