Surgery Consent Form

All pets undergoing surgery at Happy Pets Animal Hospital are required to have presurgical blood work testing. This will check for pre-existing medical conditions which may increase the risk of complications during surgery.
Here at Happy Pets Animal Hospital we use isoflurane gas which is a safe gas anesthetic used in veterinary medicine and is one of the same anesthetic gas used for many human procedures. We also use state-of-the-art surgical monitoring equipment to monitor your pet’s blood pressure, temperature, heart rate and oxygen levels during surgery. Our hospital provides pain medication for pets before, during, and after surgical procedures, we will place an intravenous catheter to administer fluids while under anesthesia. IV fluids will aid the body in stabilizing internal organs and blood pressure, and aid in metabolizing the anesthesia more efficiently. Along with shaving the hair at the IV catheter site, we may also shave other areas including the surgical site for surgical prepping and cleansing and also to monitor the site after the procedure is perform.

To ensure that your pet will not chew or lick open the surgical site, an Elizabethan collar is available. This small investment could save you the added cost to have the site repaired.
