    Our base cost estimate provided to you includes surgical procedure with pain meds to keep the pet comfortable. Several other elective options are recommended at additional cost.

    1. Pre-anesthestic blood testing

    We recommend a blood screening test on the day of surgical procedure as anesthetic drugs circulates in the blood stream and pass through the liver and kidney . We want to assess the internal organ function prior anesthesia to make the recovery a safer event. The blood work screens for problems like anemia, diabetes, kidney and liver disease. Blood work screening is Highly recommended for pets that are older than 7 years prior to anesthesia.

    2. Intra venous catheter placement and administration of IV fluids

    The IV catheter gives us rapid access to the veins in the case of an emergency. The IV fluid administration during surgical procedure helps to maintain the blood pressure at a normal level and help the pets to recover from anesthesia rapidly. IV fluids administration is Highly recommended in Senior age pets > 7 years older and patients with kidneys and liver damage

    3. Elizabethan collar

    We recommend E collar for our surgical patients to help with prevent licking/chewing of the surgery site. Not all pets need this but it is convenient to have it available if needed.

    4. Microchip

    Microchip placement under pet’s skin can be done under anesthesia which is a fairly large needle so if done while your pet is under anesthesia and already getting pain medication the procedure is more comfortable.

    5. Sedatives to go home

    Some pets needs to be on extra sedatives for few days at home in order to keep your pet calmer during the recuperation period.
