If you are unsure whether your pet is having an emergency, play it safe and have your pet examined immediately. The peace of mind is well worth a trip to the ER.

When can I expect an update on my pet's condition?
You will receive a call regarding your pet's condition by 5:00pm. At this time we will discuss whether your pet is ready to go home or whether overnight care is necessary at the emergency clinic.

You may call the technician caring for your pet for additional updates during the day. Please bear in mind that in most cases improvement is gradual over the course of the day. When the technicians are called to the phone too frequently, they are not available for hands-on patient care.

Please elect one main contact person per family to receive updates on your pet's condition to prevent redundant phone calls.

Remember that no news is good news, and you will be contacted immediately should the need arise.

When can I visit my pet?
Visiting hours are between 10:00am – 11:00am and 2:30pm – 5:00pm. All family members intending to visit a pet should do so at the same time.

Please limit your visit to 15 minutes so that your pet's treatment is not interrupted for too long.

To prevent the spread of contagious diseases, we cannot permit you to visit patients housed in the isolation ward.

We know that you would like to spend more time visiting your pet, but please respect your pet's need for medical care and rest.

What should I bring for my pet's stay?
All current medication(s)

Special diet, if any

Why does my pet need to be admitted several hours before the procedure?
In preparation for the procedure, your pet will receive:

•Comprehensive physical exam by the veterinarian
•Pre-anesthetic bloodwork
•Premedication to easy anxiety and to smooth induction of anesthesia
•Placement of an intravenous catheter to deliver medications and fluids that support blood pressure and organ function during anesthesia
This all needs to be complete BEFORE your pet's scheduled procedure time.

What should I bring for my pet's stay?
You may bring a toy or special item for your pet.  We will do our best to make sure belongings stay with your pet, however these items occasionally go missing in the laundry, so we cannot guarantee their return.

When should I expect an update on my pet?
You will receive a call when your pet is in recovery from the procedure

If there are any abnormalities on pre-anesthetic exam or blood work, you will receive a call prior to the procedure in case we need to change plans

Remember that no news is good news, and you will be contacted immediately should the need arise

When will my pet be able to go home?
Pets undergoing outpatient procedures will be ready to go by 5pm unless noted otherwise during the post-operative phone update.
