Please read carefully the information below and sign.
Your pet is in the clinic today for anaesthesia/surgery. We will perform a full physical examination on your pet before administering the anaesthesia. However, there are inherent risks to surgery and this is why we highly recommend a pre-anaesthetic blood test to be performed. This can reduce the risk and help us rule out any pre-existing internal problems that may not be evident physically, but could lead to serious complications.
