Pre anaesthetic blood testing:

Help us keep your pet healthy with pre anaesthetic blood testing. To ensure your pet can properly process and eliminate an anaesthetic, we run tests to confirm that your pets organs are functioning properly and to find any hidden health conditions that could put your pet at risk.

The top FOUR reasons to test your pet before anaesthesia:

  1. Enjoy peace of mind. Blood testing can significantly reduce medical risk.
  2. Detect hidden illness. Healthy looking pets may be hiding symptoms of a disease or ailment. Blood testing helps detect this kind of illness so we can avoid problems with anaesthesia.
  3. Reduce risk and consequences. If the pre anaesthetic testing results in not normal, we can alter the anaesthetic procedure or take other precautions to safeguard your pet’s health.
  4. Protect your pets future health. These tests become part of your pets medical record, providing a baseline for future reference.
