We have a strong philosophy of inclusivity. We often have owners present when their pets are being anaesthetised for surgery. This is uncommon at most hospitals and unheard of at referral centres. Pets are already stressed during this process, being in an area unfamiliar to them and having unfamiliar procedures performed on them. Having their owner present is very reassuring to the pet and makes the procedure far less stressful for them and reduces anaesthetic risk.
We also allow owners to watch surgical procedures performed on their pet, where possible, again unheard of at referral centres and most other hospitals. Owners, where possible, are able to be present when their pet wakes from surgery, or visit their pet at any time, during opening hours, if their pet is in hospital for illness or care after surgery.
Owners of our caesarean surgery cases are able to be present during the procedure and are able to assist our nurses during the birth of the puppies.
