General Anesthesia - Please Read
General anesthesia has become safer in recent years with the advent of newer drugs and better patient monitoring. Some conditions, however, may not be evident on physical examination alone. To better ensure your pet's safety under anesthesia, we advise that the following precautions be taken, even for elective procedures.
IV Catheter and Fluids
Intravenous fluids given during anesthesia and/or surgery help to maintain blood pressure and allow rapid administration of drugs should an emergency situation develop. If your pet is 8 years old or over, an IV catheter and fluids are mandatory and included in the estimate. If your pet is less than 8 years old and choose to accept there is an additional charge.
Accept or Decline IV Catheter and Fluids? (required)
Pre-Anesthesia Blood Testing:
We recommend pre-anesthetic blood work prior to all anesthetic procedures. A physical examination alone cannot detect all underlying medical problems that may complicate any anesthetic events. Blood work allows us greater information regarding your pet's major organ systems such as the liver, kidney, red and white blood cell counts as well as an electrolyte balance. A comprehensive blood panel is mandatory for all pets 8 years or over and is included in the estimate. The blood panel is still recommended for all other patients under the age of 8 years old.
Accept or Decline Pre-Anesthesia Blood Testing? (required)
We recommend that all patients have a microchip implanted for permanent identification in case pets are lost or stolen. If your pet is not already microchipped, would you like to implant one today during their procedure?
Accept or Decline Microchipping? (required)
We recommend sending home an e-collar after surgery. This will help prevent your pet from reaching their surgery incision which can prevent additional post-op problems and costs such as incision repair. Would you like us to send you home with an e-collar for your pet after surgery?
Accept or Decline E-Collar? (required)
