On the day of surgery

No breakfast for your pet on the day of surgery. This is very important as it is not safe for your pet to have an anaesthetic if they have eaten. Remember to remove their water bowl first thing in the morning. Make sure you arrive at your appointment on time so our clinical nurse can assist you to complete the pre-operative administration. Being on time ensures our team can provide you and your pet our undivided attention.For the comfort of your pet please ensure they have been toileted before admission.

Our standards of care for surgical procedures

At Greystanes Vet, we pride ourselves on our unwavering commitment to providing the highest quality veterinary care for your beloved pets. Our dedication to their well-being extends to every facet of our practice, especially when it comes to surgical procedures.

blood tests

Surgery and anaesthesia are very safe in the majority of cases. Because every pet is different, each patient will receive a blood test to assess kidney function and red blood cell concentration prior to administering an anaesthetic. This blood test is only a “snapshot”. In some cases, the duty veterinarian will express the need for a more thorough blood test if the patient is senior (over seven years old) or has pre-existing conditions.A more detailed blood test will help us select the best anaesthetic with minimal risk levels. Where necessary, supportive therapy will be initiated to aid your pet’s recovery. A blood test also provides baseline health information for your pet which will become a part of their medical record for future reference.
This pre-anaesthetic test is extremely beneficial regardless of age, but vital for senior pets over seven years old. The duty veterinarian or inpatient nurse will advise on this matter prior to surgical commencement.Please ask your inpatient nurse about the cost involved. This test is not compulsory, but highly valuable. The inpatient nurse will record your preference on the consent form at the time of admission.

Fluids

Extended fluids mean they’re given intravenous fluids from admission through until discharge. So in some cases, these patients may benefit from several additional hours of hydration.

To prevent dehydration and assist the anaesthetic drugs being flushed through the system, patients will receive fluids as required throughout a surgical procedure. In some cases, fluids should be extended*, especially for elderly or debilitated pets, or those with renal (kidney) conditions. All lengthy surgical procedures will require fluids. The duty veterinarian or inpatient nurse will advise on this matter prior to surgical commencement.
