Did you receive a copy of the estimate?
Do you have any questions about the estimate?
Do you authorize the estimate?
Are there any new health concerns we need to be aware of?
List current medications and time of day it is usually given.
If lab work is recommended on the day of procedure, do you authorize?
If extractions are indicated, do you authorize?
If there are extractions, we plan to give Buprenorphine—a pain medication. This is a morphine derivative and is generally well tolerated. But common side-effects can include sedation, agitation, or dysphoria (state of uneasiness). The Buprenorophine has 2 different ways it can be given. Which route would you prefer?
Option 1: oral doses given every 12 hours at home. Must come in contact with mucous membranes in the mouth, so it cannot be put in food.
Option 2: A long-acting injection (Bup SR) given by us before kitty is discharged. This stays in their system for approximately 72 hours. If any of the above adverse reactions are seen they are typically seen in the first 24 hours and then taper off.
If antibiotics are recommended by the DVM, can you medicate at home?
If yes, would you prefer pills or liquid?
If a probiotic is required, we have 2 to choose from: Probiocin is a tasteless gel given orally or mixed in with food or Fortiflora is a flavor packet you sprinkle over food. Do you have a preference?
Would you like a free nail trim on the day of the procedure?
Additional Questions or Comments
No food after midnight the night before the procedure but water is okay through the night.
Drop off between 7:00am-7:30am, the morning of the procedure unless you have made arrangements to drop off the day before. Covid-19 protocols are in place, so please call the front desk for instructions once you arrive in our parking lot.
If your kitty has been prescribed Gabapentin for anxiety, please give a dose the night before and a dose in the morning before bringing them in. Let reception staff know how much and what time it was given.
