Noosa District Animal Hospital Day Surgery
At Noosa District Animal Hospital we undertake all routine surgeries. On the day of admission please remember:
Patients are admitted between 8 and 9am.
Make sure the patient hasn’t eaten since 10pm the night before. It is also a good idea to keep the cats indoors, so that one can find them in the morning.
You can leave water available at all times.
It is advisable for dogs to be taken for a short walk before admission so that they can empty their bowels.
Additional Surgery Services
We do offer various Gold Standard recommendations beneficial for your pet prior to surgery. These are:
Pre-anaesthetic screening – This is generally recommended for animals, especially over 7 years of age and allows us to test organ function (e.g. kidney, liver etc) prior to performing an anaesthetic
Intravenous fluids – All animals undergoing a general anaesthetic are placed on intravenous fluids. This is routine as it helps maintain the blood pressure during the procedure and allows for a quicker “flushing” effect of the body
Microchip – An identification microchip can be placed under the patient’s skin whilst they are anaesthetised.
If you are unsure whether these may be needed for your pet please do not hesitate to discuss this with the veterinarian or nurse on admission of your pet.
