    How should I prepare my pet for surgery?

    If your pet has a unique health condition our veterinarians will provide special instructions prior to surgery. The general rule to prepare your pet for surgery is to have them up-to-date with the vaccines and to withhold food or water by midnight before the day of surgery.
