Pre-Anesthetic Blood Testing

This is done for your pet’s safety and to make sure that your pet’s internal organs such as the kidneys and liver are functioning correctly. All patients 7 years and older require this testing.


We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide that extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high risk patients. Using the most modern equipment on the market, the patient’s vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures by the veterinarian and surgical technician.
