Pre-anaesthetic blood testing
A blood test performed prior to anaesthesia ensures your pet can properly process and eliminate an anaesthetic. We run tests to confirm that your pet’s organs are functioning properly and to find hidden health conditions that could put your pet at risk. The top FOUR reasons to test your pet before anaesthesia are;
1. Enjoy peace of mind.
2. Detect hidden illness.
3. Reduce risks and consequences.
4. Protect your pet’s future health.
Testing can significantly reduce medical risk. Healthy-looking pets may be hiding symptoms of a disease or ailment. Testing helps detect this kind of illness so we can avoid problems with anaesthesia. If the pre-anaesthetic testing results are normal, we can proceed with confidence. If not, we can alter the anaesthetic procedure or take other precautions to safeguard your pet’s health.These tests become part of your pet’s medical record, providing a baseline for future reference.
We recommend pre-anaesthetic blood testing for all patients undergoing anaesthesia. Our practice has an in house laboratory so we will have your pets results within 30 minutes.
