How Do I Prepare My Pet For Surgery?

One of our veterinarians will likely provide specific instructions before surgery. Often, you will have to withhold food for up to 24 hours. It is very important to follow these instructions. When your pet is sedated, its gag reflex will be suppressed. Your pet may choke if it vomits while under sedation. Our vet may also request that you withhold water. These instructions are subject to change depending on the nature of the procedure.
