Your pet has been scheduled for an upcoming surgery in the near future. In ourattempt to assist clients, we have put together this letter to make surgery dayas easy and stress-free as possible.
Please read carefully all the enclosed information. If you have any questions,please feel free to call us.
On your pets’ surgery day, we require you to review and sign an AuthorizationForm— This form will be provided to you at our office prior to admitting yourpet for services.
The night before your pet’s surgery…
• Withhold all food and treats after 9:00pm.
• Water may be left down after this time period.
• If you are currently administering any medications, vitamins and/or injections, withhold the morning doses unless otherwise instructed by the doctor.
Please make arrangements for your pet to be dropped off on the morning ofscheduled surgery, unless other arrangements have been made in advance. Newpatients will have a presurgical exam the morning of procedure but may not havean appointment until later.
At time of drop off,our team will be happy to answer any questions/concerns.
If any questions arise, the doctor may contact you at the number on the Authorization Form you
will complete the morning of surgery.
You are welcome to check up on your pet’s status, however, we request that you allow plenty of time for your pet’s procedure to be done. At this time, we will be able to give you an idea when your pet may be discharged.
When you arrive to take your pet home, the receptionist will bill you out and the veterinary technician will go over all discharge orders verbally. If you do not understand any
instructions, please do not hesitate to ask them to go over them one more time.
We hope surgery day will be a pleasant experience. Remember, our team knows surgery can be an anxious time and we are always available to answer any and all questions concerning the upcoming procedure.
We look forward to serving you and your pet on the upcoming surgery day and years to come.
