Consultations and Procedure Appointments

Consultations

We work on an open consultation format, with a first come first served basis. Should an emergency arrive, however, this patient will receive priority.

Should the consultation indicate the need for further in-house procedures, such as X-rays or blood tests, then your pet may possibly be admitted to the hospital in order to perform these procedures.

House calls.  These can be arranged by appointment.  Very ill animals, however, need to be brought into the clinic.

Procedure Appointments

When surgical procedures are required, it is essential that these are pre-booked. We perform all routine surgical procedures from Monday to Friday.

On the day of the procedure, your pet will be admitted between 07h45 and 08h00. A Consent Form, which for your convenience can be down-loaded and completed at home or completed at the practice, is required on admission.

For all procedures requiring sedation or anaesthetic, the patient must be starved of all food and water from 22h00 the previous night.  This means that you may feed them their evening meal.

Prior to the procedure taking place, your pet will be given a sedative in order to settle it before the anaesthetic is administered.

With most routine procedures, the patient is discharged on the same day between 16h00 and 19h00, unless otherwise advised.
