How can I prepare myself for a referral?
Fast your pet:
Withhold food & snacks for 12 hours before. Water can be given. Bring a portion of your pet's food along, to allow feeding as soon the tests are done.
Read about contraindications for fasting:
Very young pets or toy breeds should not fast unsupervised.
Patients requiring regular medications given with food (Discuss it with your GP, if you can delay it. If unsure, please give it)
Diabetic patients do not fast. If you do home-monitoring, then measure the blood sugar 1 hour before and 1 hour after food at home.
Please remind your GP to forward all the relevant. medical records, images and blood tests (in-house & external)
Bring your pet's medication with you or write the information down (e.g. Amoxicillin, 250 mg, one tablet twice daily)
Note: Some consultations & diagnostics take more time. In such cases, you can either leave your pet with us or prepare yourself to wait.
