  • Check in is at 8:00am!

                         Pre-Operative Care Instructions!

 

After your pet's surgery, remember...

  • Keep your pet from running, jumping, playing, swimming, etc. for at least two weeks.

  • If your pet begins to lick, bite, or chew at their incision site you MUST put an e-collar ("cone of shame") on your pet or he/she could re-open the incision site.

  • We wil re-check your pet for FREE if you think there might be an issue from surgery.
