Before an anesthetic procedure all pets must be fasted, defined as no food after midnight, but are allowed access to water until they come in. We must have examined all patients within the past 12 months previous to any anesthetic procedure.
We require negative heartworm tests on all dogs within the past 12 months. Recent bloodwork (within 6 months) is required on all animals going under anesthesia. Fluids are required for all animals going under anesthesia with the exception of routine spays and neuters with which fluids are strongly recommended.
