Pre-Operative Care , What You Need To Know ....

Puppies / Dogs - MUST be starved on the morning of the procedure. They can have food up until 7pm the evening before, and water is to be left down until you bring them in for the operation. Please do not give any treats as an empty stomach is critical for safe anaesthesia. Where possible dogs should be taken for a walk to go to the toilet before being admitted unless otherwise instructed by your vet.

Kittens / Cats - We advisable to keep them indoors overnight prior to your appointment as cats seem to like to go AWAL on these occosions. They should be starved on the morning of the procedure. They can have food up until 7 pm the evening before, and water is to be left down until you bring them in for the operation. No treats are to be given as an empty stomach is critical for safe anaesthesia.

On the morning of your pets operation please give yourself time to spend a few minutes with the veterinary surgeon or veterinary nurse on the morning of admission where a pre-surgical examination will be performed. Pre-anaesthetic laboratory work will be discussed and there will be an opportunity for any last minute instructions to be communicated to the Vet surgeon. A pre-anaesthetic sedation is normally given shortly after admission. We really do want you to understand what we are doing and why. If you have any questions about our procedures or your pet's condition, please do not hesitate to ask.

If your pet is taking medication, give the normal dose at the normal time unless otherwise directed. If your pet is diabetic, please ask the veterinary surgeon for special instructions.

The Benefits Of Neutering

  • Apply not only to dogs and cats but also to other animals such as rabbits and ferrets.
  • Prevents females coming into season, when they may attract unwanted male attention, become pregnant or have false pregnancies.
  • Prevents the risk of testicular cancer in males and uterus infections and cancers in females.
  • In male dogs and cats, neutering can reduce urine marking and roaming.
  • Can reduce aggressive behaviour in mature male ferrets, as well as the smell often associated with them! Neutering a female ferret can also prevent often severe health problems such as alopecia and anaemia.
  • Unspayed female animals can be messy when they come into season - during this time, females can bleed for up to three weeks.
  • Animals don't respect family relationships - siblings will mate. This increases the risk of offspring with birth defects and deformities.
  • Can reduce the risk of them being stolen for breeding.
