Surgical Release Form

Surgical Release Form

  • FOR SAFETY WE MAY REQUIRE THE FOLLOWING:

    • A current exam no more than one day prior to the procedure
    • A safety catheter for intravenous access for fluids and/or medications
    • Advanced monitoring of vital systems ∙ Intravenous fluids during surgery to maintain blood pressure
    • Lab tests of blood to determine underlying problems

    Advances in anesthesia and surgery have made most procedures quite safe, with a low rate of complications. However, occasional problems can arise if the veterinarian is not aware of the pre­existing conditions which may not be evident during the pre­surgical examination and diagnostic testing, We require that every pet undergoing general anesthesia have baseline lab testing. This does not guarantee the absence of complications; however, it will greatly reduce the risk of complications.

    FOR COMFORT WE MAY REQUIRE THE FOLLOWING:

    • An anti­pain injection or patch before the procedure that lessens the perception of pain afterwards
    • Post procedure anti­pain injection for sustained comfort
    • Pain medication for home administration
