When you bring your pet into Christchurch Veterinary Referrals, your surgeon will explain what will happen. Then, your pet is taken care of until the operation is carried out.

Once complete, your pet receives lots of TLC as it recovers on one of our wards. Rehabilitation begins as soon as possible, and you’ll soon be able to come and pick your animal up.

We’ll tell you when to come back and see the surgeon for a check-up, and you’ll get all appropriate aftercare information, which we’ll also forward on to your vet practice.
