We always give particular and detailed recommendations for each appointment. Generally, it is advisable to avoid feeding at least 6 to 12 hours prior to sedation or anesthesia.

Sedation and anesthesia always carry inherent risks which differ between patients. We, therefore, treat each patient as an individual. Our veterinarians aim to minimize this risk by performing a pre-anesthetic clinical assessment of the patient (includes visual observation, heart and lung auscultation, palpation, and temperature check) and pre-anesthetic blood analysis if indicated.
