    Pre-Anesthesia Exam

    Pre-Anesthetic Testing – Because of our commitment to providing you with the highest quality of veterinary care, we require pre-anesthesia testing. Each dental or anesthetic procedure has some risk involved. Advances in anesthesia have made routine procedures relatively safe, but occasional problems can occur due to pre-existing conditions not evident on physical examination.

    HEALTH SCREEN II — We need a urine sample. Please collect at home or avoid letting your pet urinate on the way into the hospital.
