Our greatest concern is the wellbeing of your pet. Before any anesthesia is administered, we will perform a complete pre-anesthetic examination to identify existing medical conditions that could complicate the procedure and compromise your pet’s health. There is always the possibility that a pre-anesthetic exam alone will not identify all health problems. This is why blood testing is required prior to anesthesia. This 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 treatment. Comprehensive Blood Panel: This is the most complete blood screen available using our in-hospital laboratory. This panel includes: red blood cell counts, white blood cell counts, a check on kidney and liver function, electrolyte levels, and an additional pancreatic function test. If your pet has not had a comprehensive blood screening performed and reported as ‘normal’ within three months of their scheduled anesthesia/sedation, this test will be run the morning of their procedure. I, (or agent acting on owner’s behalf) hereby authorize Brookfield Veterinary Hospital (or its agents or whomsoever is designated) to perform the above procedure. I understand that there are inherent risks with anesthesia and that a guarantee of a successful outcome cannot be made. These risks have been explained to me as completely as possible within reason. I also understand that Brookfield Veterinary Hospital will do their best to minimize these risks through pre-anesthetic blood testing, using the most appropriate and safest anesthetics available, and by using state of the art monitoring equipment. Furthermore, I agree to pay the fees for all services rendered at the time the pet is discharged from the hospital. Please sign recognizing that you have read and understand the risks.
