Preparing Your Pet for Surgery
On the morning of the procedure, do not feed your pet. Ideally, you want to avoid feeding your pet after 10 pm the night before the procedure and only give your pet small amounts of water until 6 am on the morning of the procedure. Feeding your pet may result in delayed treatments.
Groom and clean your pet before the procedure. By ensuring your pet is clean, you limit the risk of infections. A veterinary professional may recommend specific cleaning instructions for some procedures. If a sickness develops and does not relate to the treatment, then report the sickness to the veterinary surgeon. Do not ignore the symptoms or sickness, since it may increase some health risks to your pet.
