Surgical and Dental Procedures

Front Office StaffFor the health and safety of all animals admitted to our hospital, we ask that all pets have the following immunizations current:

Dogs: Canine distemper/Parvovirus (DHLPP) and Rabies vaccination.

Cats: Feline distemper/Respiratory viruses (FVRCP) and Rabies vaccination.

Please be prepared to provide evidence of these vaccinations within the last 12 months. If you are uncertain of your pet's current vaccinations, please feel free to ask one of our staff members to check your pet's health records. Furthermore, if your pet is not current, please arrange to update the required vaccinations at least 10 days prior to your pet?s scheduled procedure.

Certain medical procedures may require your pet to have fasted from food, water, or medications prior to arrival at our hospital. Please refer to the pre-surgical instructions provided by your veterinarian for details specific to your pet. In general:

  • No food after 7:00 p.m. the night before surgery (except diabetics, see below).

  • No water the morning of surgery.

  • If your pet is a diabetic, please ask for special instructions regarding the 24 hour period before the procedure. Diabetic pets have special needs prior to a procedure.

  • It is recommended that all surgery patients be bathed the day before surgery to help prevent infection. DO NOT DIP FOR FLEAS/TICKS.

Please contact a member of our staff if you have any questions or concerns regarding your pet's medical procedure prior to admittance.
