Cole Veterinary Clinic’s mission is to provide quality, personalized care for your pet. With regards to anesthetic and surgical procedures, this means we treat every patient individually, and will make every possible effort to minimize risk during any anesthetic procedure. However, risk is still inherent with anesthesia, even in young, healthy patients; although rare, complications and death can sometime occur.
One way to minimize anesthetic risk is by doing a blood panel to assess proper internal organ function (effectively process and eliminate anesthesia from the body), and blood cell counts (anemia, infection, clotting assessment Having this information can help Dr. Cole make the most informed decision regarding anesthetic options and timing of anesthesia. In the event there is a severe abnormality, we will call you prior to proceeding with anesthesia. By choosing one of the following options, I am providing informed consent for today's anesthetic procedure.
