WHAT HAPPENS IF MY PET IS HOSPITALISED?
Some patients will be admitted to the hospital for further tests or for surgery. The clinician in charge of your pet will discuss how long the hospital stay will be and will make arrangements for contacting you regularly.
If your pet requires a special diet, please bring a sufficient quantity for three days, or longer if needed. We would be happy for you to bring a blanket and a special toy for each pet. We also ask that you keep your collar and lead or cat-basket with you; space is limited and it is easy to lose items in a busy hospital.
Our wards are staffed 24 hours a day by veterinary nursing staff so that all animals are kept a careful eye on. Each discipline has a vet on call so that an expert is on hand if special care is needed out of hours.
As you might expect, our vets are very busy with patient care. When you call to check on your pet's status, please bear with us if you cannot immediately reach the vet in charge of your pet's case. He/she will return your call as soon as possible. If you wish to visit your hospitalised pet, this must be arranged by the vet in charge of the case.
