Pre-Op Instructions

What You Need to Know Before Surgery 

 

LOCATION

We are located at 657 Hwy 49 in Richland. From Interstate 20, you will go through only one red light on 49 before reaching our building. You will go over a bridge and pass the shopping center with Mi Cabrito Mexican Restaurant and Anytime Fitness. Just after this shopping center, turn at the large white "Mississippi Title Loans" sign. Our building is behind and to the right of Mississippi Title Loans- it is a grey building with red awnings. Make sure that your GPS does not take you to OLD Hwy 49- you want the regular Hwy 49.

CHECK-IN

Check-in is from 7am-7:45am. No animals will be accepted after 8am, no exceptions. Park in the lot to the side of our building. When you arrive, please sign in at the small table located at the front corner of the building. We will text you when it is your turn to check in.

For the animal's safety, leave them in the vehicle. Once you have checked in, we will have you bring the animal through the side entrance.

Tame cats must be in a carrier or a secure, humane box. Feral cats must be in a humane trap. Dogs must be on a leash. 

If your pet has a current rabies vaccination, please bring their rabies certificate with you at check-in. We cannot accept rabies tags as proof of vaccination.

It is required that only one person from each party leave the vehicle. No children under 18 are permitted inside the building. Clients must wear a mask and must sanitize their hands before entering the building. Spots outside the front entrance are clearly marked in order to practice social distancing. Clients who do not follow these rules will be asked to leave.

CHECKOUT

Please pick your pet up between 4pm-4:45pm. We close at 5pm. Due to COVID-19, we are currently accepting debit and credit cards only. No cash or check is accepted.

 

FASTING

All animals may have water. For animals over 4 months of age: no food after midnight the night before surgery. For animals under 4 months of age, no food after 6am the morning of surgery. If #AnimalName# has not fasted, he or she may vomit during surgery, which is a choking risk.

Check out this video so you know what to expect after your pet's surgery.
