Patients need to be fasted before any anaesthetic, sedation and sometime blood tests. The night before the scheduled procedure your pet is to have a normal dinner, then no more food after 8 pm, meaning no breakfast on the procedure day. Water may be left out over night and taken away first thing in the morning. We advised keeping cats locked up the day before scheduled surgery.

We also advise washing your pet before a surgery, when they have sutures they will not be able to be bathed for generally 10 days post surgery. Admission times for your pet on the day of the procedure are between 8-9 am but if arranged we can have a nurse available for admitting from 7,30 am. Admitting usually takes about 15 minutes and is a chance for us to discuss the anaesthetic, health concerns, current medication, blood tests and fluids which may be necessary. Most procedure are day surgeries and we will call to discuss a discharge time post op.

It is not always possible to determine the exact cost of your animal’s treatment when it is first examined, but an initial written estimate will be provided upon admission. If you anticipate a problem paying the fees, please tell us at the outset. If necessary we can tailor the costs to suit an owner’s budget. We are happy to provide a daily update on your fees if requested. A deposit will be required for all animals that are hospitalised.

All accounts must be settled prior to discharge. We accept cash, Mastercard, Visa and EFTPOS cards. Cheques will only be accepted provided we have acceptable identification. We also work with a veterinary treatment finance company called Vetpay who can offer flexible payment options to eligible owners.

In the unfortunate event your pet is unwell after hours, we would encourage you to call the team at AES at Tanawah on 5445 1333 or AEC in Noosaville on 5353 7005
