New Patient Registration Form - Required

Surgical Information Packet - Required
Your pet has been scheduled for an upcoming surgery. In our attempt to assist clients, we have put together this packet to make surgery day as easy and stress-free as possible.
In addition to this letter, you will find that the following information has been enclosed:
1. Pre-Anesthetic Blood Testing Information Form (Initial and bring in day of surgery)
2. Surgical Information Sheet (Initial and bring in Day of Surgery)
Please read carefully all the enclosed information. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us. On your pets' surgery day, we require you to review and sign an Authorization/Estimate Form- which allows you to choose optional services. This form is not included in the packet and will be provided to you at our office prior to admitting your pet for services.
The night before your pet's surgery... * Withhold all food, water and treats after midnight the night before.
* If you are currently administering any medications, vitamins and/or injections, withhold the morning doses unless otherwise instructed by the doctor.
Please make arrangements for your pet to be dropped off on the morning of scheduled surgery between 8-9, unless other arrangements have been made in advance. At time of drop off, our team will be happy to answer any questions/concerns and collect the enclosed/completed Information Forms.
Our veterinary nurse will escort your pet to the surgical prepping area to wait for their surgery. Our nurse will collect all blood samples and tests including an EKG prior to surgery. If any questions arise, the doctor may contact you at the number on the Authorization Form you will complete the morning of surgery.
You are welcome to check up on your pet's status, however, we request that you allow plenty of time for your pet's procedure to be done. At this time, we will be able to give you an idea when your pet may be discharged. When you arrive to take your pet home, the receptionist will check you out and the veterinary nurse will go over all discharge orders verbally and give you a written copy. If you do not understand any instructions, please do not hesitate to ask them to go over them one more time.
We hope surgery day will be a pleasant experience. Remember, our team knows surgery can be an anxious time and we are always available to answer any and all questions concerning the upcoming procedure.
We look forward to serving you and your pet on the upcoming surgery day and for years to come.
We require a phone number(s) where you can be reached surgery day. Failure to be reached on the day of the procedure may result in postponement of the surgery.
PRE-ANESTHETIC BLOOD TESTING INFORMATION FORM
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.
Our greatest concern is the well-being of your pet. Before putting your pet under anesthesia, we routinely perform a full physical examination.
We also require that a Pre-Anesthetic Blood Profile and EKG be performed on all pets undergoing anesthesia to maximize patient safety.
The Pre-Anesthetic Blood Profile and EKG help alert our surgeon to the presence of heart disease, arrhythmias or cardiac insufficiency, dehydration, anemia, infection, diabetes and/or kidney or liver disease that could complicate the procedure. These tests are similar to those your own physician would run if you were to undergo anesthesia. In addition, these tests are useful as a baseline of information if your pet's health changes leading to more accurate diagnoses and treatments.
1. The Quantitative Blood Count (QBC) and Pre-Anesthetic Profile include and are not limited to: * CBC: PCV (Anemia), White Blood Cell Count (Infection) & Red Blood Cell Count (Anemia/Bleeding Disorder), Platelet Count (Clotting Disorder)
* Profile: BUN and Creatinine (Kidney), ALKP and ALT (Liver), Glucose (Sugar), Total Protein (Dehydration), and Electrolytes (Imbalance).
2. For feline patients, our feline owners will see an option for a FeLV/FIV Test. We highly recommend this test be performed on all feline patients at least once in their lives because Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (Feline Aids) are viruses for which no cure exists. If your pet goes outside, we recommend administering the Feline Leukemia vaccine as well. Please ask questions if you would like to learn more about Feline Leukemia and Feline Aids.
We realize surgery and anesthesia are scary for both the owner and patient and we attempt to make surgery day as safe and comfortable for all involved. The physical examination and blood work done prior to any surgical procedure allows us to best minimize anesthetic and surgical risks and maximize patient safety.
If you have any questions or hesitations about the scheduled procedure, please do not hesitate to call us to discuss any aspect of the upcoming procedure.
