Management Strategy: OPERATING THEATRE AND STAFF PROTOCOLS
Major surgeries are performed in a closed-off, dedicated operating room. Dental procedures are performed in a dedicated dental suite. In theatre, staff wear a cap, mask, and sterile surgical gown for each surgery. We use a newly sterilized surgical pack for each surgery patient. We also have a variety of oral and injectable antibiotics to use when indicated.
Management Strategy: CLIPPING OF FUR
To collect blood samples and ensure sterile intravenous access, patches of fur will be clipped. The site and amount of fur clipped will vary depending on the procedure undertaken and the animal's requirements. For sterile surgeries, the site will be clipped and prepared according to our clinic protocols.
By providing consent for your pet's procedure, you agree that your animal's fur will be clipped to any extent required for their procedure.
