Pre-Anesthetic Examination and Testing
Our greatest concern is the well being of your pet. Before placing your pet under ansthesia, it is important to take steps to identify any existing medical conditions that could complicate the procedure and compromise the health of your pet
Before placing your pet under anesthesia, a veterinarian will perform a complete physical examination.
In addition to the physical exam, we perform a pre-anesthetic blood profile on
all pets 7 years of age and older
. For younger pets, this blood profile is strongly recommended, but not required.
Veterinarians may suggest additional testing for patients over 7 years of age or with underlying disease.
