- I hereby authorize that I am the owner of the above mentioned patient and have the authority to give Mile Creek Animal Hospital and Dr. Winner permission to perform the above mentioned surgical procedure(s).
Very few lost pets find their way home without permanent identification. We can implant a MICROCHIP while your pet is sedated for $56.00 (REDUCED COST if done at surgery time is $40.00)
In a continuing effort to provide quality healthcare to our patients and reduce anesthetic risk, we recommenda pre-surgical blood panel. This blood work will check liver and kidney function, blood proteins, and blood glucose levels before your pet is administered any anesthesia. The liver and kidneys are the prime organs that metabolize the anesthetic drugs weuse and it is possible to have elevations, indicating improper function, with no physical symptoms. Blood proteins give a complete pictureof liver function and hydration status. Blood glucose levels ensure your pet’s sugar is at an appropriate level. This blood work gives us a more complete picture of howyour pet’s body is functioning.
Your pet will be examined prior to any procedure, to ensure they are in good health and able to undergo the mentioned procedure(s). If any abnormalities are found, it will be up to Dr. Winner’s medical opinion if she thinks it is safe to proceed. You will be notified of any problems found on physical exam or pre-surgical blood panel.
I have read the above information, have had the procedure explained to me, and understand the risks of surgery
