Presurgical Laboratoty Tests
Before putting your pet under anesthesia, we will perform a full physical examination. However, many conditions, including disorders of the blood, liver, and kidneys, are not detected unless blood testing is· performed. Such tests are important for pets of all ages prior to any kind of surgery or anesthetic related procedure. For these reasons we require each pet undergoing any procedure that requires sedation or anesthesia to have a pre-anesthetic blood screening. Our laboratory is fully equipped and staffed to perform these important blood tests. Results will be immediately available for evaluation by our veterinarian before anesthesia and/or surgery.
