All cats must be presented in an appropriate cat carrier or on a leash.
Procedures Requiring Sedation or Anesthesia
To make anesthesia or sedation as safe as possible for your pet, it is important that they be fasted at least 12 hours prior to admission. This means making sure that all food and chew toys are withheld during this time. It is not necessary to withhold water.
Procedures Involving Laboratory Work
It is also a good idea to withhold food for at least 12 hours prior to blood drawing for laboratory work, as most of the tests that we run require a fasting sample.
