3. Blood Profile/CBC/Chemistry Panel
The use of anesthesia poses a potential health risk to your pet. To decrease the risks associated with anesthesia, a current pre-anesthetic blood profile (CBC/Chemistry Panel) is highly recommended. A blood profile can rule out any pre-existing conditions that may not be evident physically, but could lead to serious complications. This profile includes tests that check for anemia, infection, diabetes, kidney/liver failure, and other potential underlying problems.
Please note that the fees for this blood work are in addition to the cost of the scheduled procedure. Also, immature pets, aged pets, and sick/debilitated pets are in a higher risk group and may need more extensive blood work than what is offered on this release form. If your pet is in this higher risk group, please discuss blood work fees with the Doctor.
To authorize bloodwork, please choose the age category that best fits your pet:
