Admissions & In Patients
48 hours before your pet's operation
Normally we ask that your pet does not consume food or milk for 12 hours before the operation, food should be withheld from midnight the day before the operation. Water should be removed first thing on the morning of the operation.
Arriving at the surgery
At this time we will also make sure your pet is fit for surgery and doesn't have any conditions such as diarrhoea.
What will happen after your pet's operation/procedure?
Your pet will be made comfortable and monitored closely throughout their stay at Larkmead. Before going home, if able, they will be fed, watered, toileted and exercised.
You will be given advice on how to care for your pet over the next few days to help them in their recovery.
If you have any queries at any stage of your pet's recovery, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
