For Anesthetic Procedures

Anesthetic Procedures at PetCare Veterinary Hospital

Unless your doctor advises otherwise, your pet needs to be fasted before surgery or dental procedures. Food should be withheld after 9:00 p.m. the evening before surgery. Small amounts of water in the morning are OK.

Please bring all medications your pet is taking as well as any special food.

When you schedule the surgery, your doctor or nurse will also schedule your drop-off time.

When you drop your pet off, we’ll ask you for a phone number where you can be reached throughout the day. Additionally, you’ll be asked to leave a deposit for the procedure.

We require routine pre-surgical blood work to screen for anesthetic risks. This blood work can be performed either the day of the surgery or during an appointment prior to the surgery.
