Your pet is scheduled for a procedure that requires general anesthesia. We are quite proud of our "safe" anesthesia record here, but as you know we CANNOT guarantee a 100% safe anesthesia every time. We wish to minimize any unknown risk factors that may not be evident physically. All of our patients will have a pre-anesthetic blood panel on the day of surgery or a few days before surgery. It is important to know about liver and kidney functions prior to administering anesthetic drugs. The body processes and eliminates anesthetic drugs using these organs, and if these organs are not functioning 100%, your doctor can adjust the anesthetic agents accordingly, decreasing the risk to your pet. Should there be any indication that an abnormality exists, the doctor will either contact you before proceeding or take the necessary steps to help ensure the safety of your pet. We will also place intravenous catheter in their leg to provide fluids during anesthesia.
Please answer the following questions as they relate to what anesthetics are given to your pet:
Has your pet ever had a seizure?
Has your pet ever had trouble with anesthesia?
Has your pet been given any ASPIRIN within the last week?
