SPAH Dog Surgery Form

Dog Surgery Form
South Putnam Animal Hospital

We are looking forward to seeing you and your dog for his/her surgical appointment. Please arrive between 9 and 9:15am. You will need to be present while the doctor performs your pet's physical examination, so allow about an hour for the admitting process.

In order to make your pet's admission to the hospital easier, we ask that you read the enclosed materials and fill out the forms ahead of time. The first two pages asks for information about you and your pet. If your pet has had any testing or vaccinations in the past, please fill in the information and bring copies of their medical records with you to the appointment.

Your Animal Welfare League certificate entitles you to get Rabies and Distemper vaccinations for your pet at a substantial discount, and we recommend these vaccinations for all dogs and cats.
  • For dogs: We require a current heartworm test for all dogs prior to anesthesia. If your dog has not been tested and/or is not on monthly preventative, we will perform this test in the morning before surgery. If your dog has been tested within the last 12 months and is receiving heartworm preventative, please provide us with a copy of the medical records. There are 3 additional vaccinations which we offer for dogs which provide protection against Lyme disease, Leptospirosis, and Canine Cough. Please indicate which of these vaccines you would like for your pet on the appropriate form.

Also in your packet is a consent form for pre-anesthetic blood testing, which can be done here at the hospital prior to surgery, and is recommended to provide additional information about your pet's overall health. A fecal (stool) examination for intestinal parasites is important for both dogs and cats and should be performed at least once yearly.

We appreciate your time and patience in filling out the enclosed forms. The requested information will help expedite the admission process while ensuring the best possible medical care for your pet. Please be sure to bring the completed forms as well as your Animal Welfare League Certificate and a copy of your pet's vaccine history the morning of your pet's surgery. You can also fax these records to us ahead of time at (845) 628-1896 or email them to:

Your pet should not have anything to eat after 8:30pm the night before surgery. Normal access to water is fine. Please do not hesitate to call our office with any questions at (845) 628-1834. We look forward to seeing you!
Sincerely, The Doctors and Staff
