Anesthetic Screening Consent/Waiver
Like you, our greatest concern is the wellbeing of your pet. A physical exam will be performed before sedating your pet. Howevery, many conditions, including disorders of the kidneys, liver, heart, and blood cannot be detected without blood lab screening and heart electrocardiograms. For these reasons, we highly recommend pre-operative blood screening before sedating your pet, especially those advanced in age. If you have more questions about this screening, please talk to the staff the day of surgery.
In order to keep surgeries accessible to more people and pets, these blood screens are not included in the price of a surgery.
