All our surgical admissions are routinely conducted in the mornings from 8.00am – 10.00am. By the time we complete the forms and work our way through the questions we need to ask, this could take around 15 minutes or so.
We appreciate that for most of you busy Mums and Dads that this is probably the most hectic and inconvenient part of the day. Getting to work, preparing the kids for school, making lunches and organising school drops. Not the best time at all really – then – the last thing you need is to be held up at the vets and be late for your other commitments.
To make things a little easier we can offer you these options.
- You are most welcome to admit your pet the previous evening between 5.00pm and 8.00pm. Your pet will board comfortably for the night in a kennel with access to water. You may choose to feed your pet beforehand or we can supply a light meal. There is no additional charge for this service.
- You can download a copy of our standard admission forms for routine surgery, print off a copy and complete all details the night before admission and still drop off your pet in the morning. This at least speeds up the process in the morning.
P.S The benefits of evening admission is that your pet has some quiet time overnight to settle in and become familiar with the new environment. It also provides the staff with a little more “bonding time” so your pet is more relaxed before surgery.
