Many operations performed on small furries will involve a general anaesthetic. The risks have now been minimised by the use of modern drugs, techniques and equipment, and every care will be taken to ensure the safe recovery of your pet.

However, all anaesthetics still carry a minimum risk, and so we ask you to help us lessen the risk as follows:

  • Please DO NOT REMOVE FOOD THE NIGHT BEFORE. Do allow him/her to drink water and eat overnight and on the morning of the operation.
  • Please bring your pet to the surgery between 8.00am-8.30am on the morning of the operation, in an escape proof container. You will have an admit appointment with either a nurse or vet much like any other operation.
  • If you have any questions please ask the nurse or vet at the time.
  • Pre-anaesthetic blood tests are available for some species and may be discussed with the admitting veterinary surgeon or nurse.
  • Please leave us an emergency telephone number for the day that we will be able to contact you on if necessary.
  • Please remove any sawdust from your pets transport cage and living quarters as this can be contra-indicated for recovery after an operation.
  • Please contact the surgery between 2.30pm – 3.30pm to arrange a time for collection of your pet. This is usually between 3-6pm
  • You are welcome to ask for an estimate of the likely costs. Fees are due for payment on collection of the animal. Any treatment covered by insurance must in all cases be paid for on receipt of an invoice. Claim forms will be completed and forwarded as necessary.
  • We reserve the right to make a charge for dealing with insurance claims.
