Whenever an animal undergoes anesthesia and/or surgery, some risk is involved. The amount of risk depends on many factors, including age, physical condition and condition of organ systems (i.e. heart, kidneys, liver, etc.). Anesthetic risks can be greatly reduced with prior knowledge of existing problems. Therefore, it is our policy that all pets undergoing anesthesia be evaluated with a physical exam and labwork prior to anesthesia.
