It is important to understand that a pre-anesthetic profile does not guarantee the absence of anesthetic complications. It may, however, greatly reduce the risk of complications as well as identify medical conditions that could require medical treatment in the future.
Our greatest concern is the well-being of your pet. We will perform a physical examination before administering anesthesia. However, disorders of the liver, kidneys or blood, are not detected unless blood testing is done.
Abnormalities of any of these may increase anesthetic risk. For these reasons we highly recommend pre-anesthetic blood screens.
