Day of Surgery Expectations
At Animal Hospital Maple Orchard we perform surgery every week day. Here are some things we would like you to know about the surgery and what to expect when you come to us for a procedure.
1. The night before we ask that all food and water is taken up after midnight to prevent dogs and cats from getting sick due to the medication we give them before surgery.
2. We ask that you arrive for the surgery on the day it has been scheduled and leave time for the check in process with our surgery technician; usually about 15-20 minutes.
3. The time for drop off is between 6:40am and 7:30am. You can also schedule to have your pet dropped off the night before surgery as well.
Please bring with you leash and collar, carrier, cone or covers and all updated vaccination or medical records.
When checking in with our surgery technician she will go over all important questions prior to the surgery such as blood work if required and CPR.
Please be aware that for most of these procedures your pet will be with us for most of the day. Doctors will call after surgery to arrange a pick up time that works best for your pet.
We are veterinary professionals teaching, treating, and caring for our neighborhood's dogs and cats.
