Please read the following instructions carefully.

The Night Before your Scheduled Appointment:

  • Keep your pet safely inside your home.
  • No food for an adult pet (including bones, treats, snacks) after midnight.
  • Pets under 4 months should have a small meal on the morning of surgery.
  • Water is fine until the morning of the procedure. We recommend taking it away when you wake up that morning, so your animal has a small amount of time without it before coming in.

The Day of Surgery:

  • Drop off time the day of the surgery is between 8:00 – 10:00 am.
  • Admission typically takes 10-15 minutes to complete.
  • All dogs must be wearing a collar and leash and all cats must be in carrier.
  • Please give your dog a good walk prior to arrival.


  • For routine surgeries pick up is same day between 5:00-6:30 pm on weekdays and 12:00-2:30 pm on Saturdays.
  • For orthopedics and other major surgeries, we may require your pet to stay overnight and pick up will be next day between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm.
  • We will give you both verbal and written instructions for the post-surgery care.

Please also take the time to read about our commitment to safe anesthesia as you may be asked to authorize recommended procedures during check-in.
