Why Is Pre-Anesthetic Blood Work Necessary?

Even the most routine surgical procedures are risky, which is why it’s important that we fully evaluate your pet’s health before giving them a general anesthetic.

Before any invasive procedure, we look over your pet’s health history, age, and weight and check their liver and kidney function. This will let us know whether they are able to manage the anesthesia with minimal risk.

Many animal hospitals only require pre-anesthetic blood work for senior animals or those with chronic health conditions. However, we believe we can give your pet the best care by making this a standard part of all cat and dog surgeries.

Post-Op Pain Management

Most surgical procedures require a certain level of post-op pain management to help your cat or dog to recover in the shortest amount of time.

The last thing we want is for your companion to be in pain, which can slow their recovery and cause them unneeded stress. We will provide you with detailed instructions for monitoring your pet’s recovery.

This often means the use of an Elizabethan collar to protect the incision site and pain medication to minimize discomfort. We also recommend that you limit your cat or dog’s physical activity until the healing process is complete.

If you think your dog or cat is experiencing abnormal discomfort while they’re recovering at home, please contact us as soon as possible at (407) 862-6892.
