PRE-OPERATIVE BLOOD PANEL
REQUIRED FOR ALL ANIMALS OVER 6 YEARS OLD AND STRONGLY RECOMMENDED FOR PETS UNDER 6 YEARS OLD
As part of our commitment to offering the safest care for your pet that we can during its visit for surgery, we will perform a physical examination prior to anesthesia. We strongly recommend that a pre-operative blood screen be performed to insure that the risks of the anesthesia to your pet's health are kept to a minimum. This blood panel allows us to determine if there are any underlying problems that might lead to complications during or after anesthesia, problems which are not always evident on a physical exam.
