Frequently Asked Questions

Q:

Is it safe to use an anesthetic on senior cats and dogs?

Your veterinarian will be able to assess any potential risk associated with your senior pet. Most vets will offer pre-anaesthetic screening tests which may include a thorough physical examination, pre-anaesthesic blood tests and other preventative diagnostic measures.  These tests will help identify any underlying issues and allow the veterinary team to prepare for and provide the necessary support before, during and after the procedure.
