Here is some information about what to expect if your pet has to attend our hospital.

Procedures, Operations and Hospital Stays

Sometimes your pet may be required to stay at ARH for a period of time for further diagnosis and treatment. At this point, you will be provided with a consent for treatment form which will have the estimate of costs of treatment required. ARH requires at least a 50% of the estimate to be paid at the start of treatment, with the account to be finalised at the time of your pets discharge. We may ask for a progress payment during your pet’s stay in hospital.

Fasting your pet

If your pet is coming in to have any type of procedure, please make sure you fast them from the night before. This means they can have dinner as normal the night before and take away their food at about 10pm so they have an empty stomach. Offer them as much water as they like. If they are a diabetic, or have any other medical conditions please contact your vet, or our friendly reception team to discuss. Please note- Do not withhold food from exotic and avian patients.

VisitingShaggy Dog with Blue Blanket

When your pet is staying at ARH, we encourage you to visit during our set visiting hours. The vet looking after your pet will be able to advise you if this is appropriate or not, so mention it to them when they call to update you. Please contact reception to book in a visiting time, and to ensure your pet doesn’t miss any treatments, we would recommend no longer than a 15 minute visit.

Visiting hours

Please check with the treating vet to arrange a visit with your pet.

Phone Updates

During your pet’s hospital stay, you may miss your pet and be worried about them. We encourage you to call us at anytime, day or night and find out how your pet is going. The treating vet will do their best to update you as often as possible, but in the event they are unavailable when you call, please understand we may need to leave them a message for them to contact you.
