Food has been withheld since 9:00 PM last night and water has been withheld since 7:00 AM today.
I understand that my pet may have its leg shaved so that a catheter can be set so that fluids may be given during the anesthetic procedure. This keeps the blood pressure up and blood flowing to the vital organs, replenishes fluids, and also provides an injection port for emergency drugs should they be needed.
For the safety of all our pets as well as our personnel, all pets must be current on rabies vaccinations and dogs must be up to date on Bordatella (“kennel cough”) vaccinations. If they are not, these will be administered while they are hospitalized.
I accept the pre-anesthetic blood work and EKG required by the veterinarian.
