HOSPILTALISATION & DAY CARE
For seniors with pets, being hospitalized means worrying about your pet getting the care that you provide them at home, Star Veterinary Clinic and our staff understand that they are family and try to ease the concerns as much as possible, you are welcome to call the hospital to check with a veterinary technician on your pet’s general status throughout the stay. Our veterinarians and technicians do medical rounds throughout the day to review each patient’s progress. You will be contacted at least once a day by a veterinarian with a full medical report. If any significant changes occur while your pet is hospitalized, a veterinarian will contact you immediately. Unfortunately, since we are not open 24 hours a day, we will not be able to receive any phone calls or e-mails outside of normal business hours.
We have plenty of clean, cozy blankets, towels, and pillows for your pet to snuggle up with while they are hospitalized. We will send your leashes home with you. Special toys and blankets are best left at home. Collars and harnesses will be kept here during your pet’s stay.
VISITING YOUR PET
Visiting hours are primarily for pets who are hospitalized for intensive care. There are times when interaction with the family is an essential component of recovery. While visiting may seem like an ideal way for you to cope with your pet’s hospitalization, often it is not recommended. It takes some time for patients to become acclimated to the hospital environment and visiting may interrupt the acclimation process. Pets can become over-stimulated and excited during family visits and stress levels may increase when you leave. Our veterinarians will let you know what is best for your pet. Pets who have had an anaesthetic procedure should be allowed time to fully recover from the sedation before having visitors.
