Hospital and Procedural Information:
Anesthesia: Pre-surgical blood tests and physical exams will enable us to assess and minimize the risk of anesthesia to your pet.
Monitoring: To minimize anesthesia risk, we monitor the heart, blood pressure, respiration rates, temperature, and oxygenation.
Catheterization: For sterility, hair will be shaved over a vein on the leg so that an intravenous catheter (I.V.) can be placed. Blood pressure may lower during anesthetic procedures and fluid therapy aids in supporting your pet’s internal organ systems. It also allows immediate access to the vascular system in case of an emergency.
Pain Management: Medication for pain may be necessary in some dental procedures. The doctor will administer pain medications according to your pet’s needs, which can be an additional fee ranging from $20.00 to $50.00.
Antibiotics: Medications may be an additional fee ranging from $20.00 to $50.00 and may be prescribed by the doctor as needed.
Pre-Op Blood Work: Blood work is not required, but is highly recommended for any patient going under anesthesia to ensure that any elevations are properly dealt with. Many conditions including disorders of the liver, kidney, and blood are often undetected without bloodwork screening.
