For the safety of your pet, we recommend pre-anesthetic bloodwork. Included in the quoted cost of surgeries is a Complete Blood Cell Count (CBC) which looks at red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. We are looking to see what condition these cells are in, and for signs of infection or anemia.
In addition to the CBC, we may recommend additional bloodwork prior to your pet going under anesthetic. This may include looking at liver and kidney health.
