Surgery and Anesthesia Consent Form

Client’s Name: Pet’s Name:

Anesthetic procedure(s) to be performed:

General Information:

Pre-anesthetic Blood Safety Screen - Our on-site laboratory lets us screen for hidden problems before your pet’s treatment begins. These tests also provide a baseline for monitoring your pet during surgery, and can indicate chemical imbalances that could affect the pet under anesthesia.

Anesthesia - East Lake uses the same safe Isoflurane gas that is often used in human medicine. Isoflurane is primarily eliminated through the respiratory tract rather than through the kidneys or liver. This reduces the risk associated with anesthesia and allows for a quick recovery.

Monitoring - Your pet’s blood pressure, temperature, heart rate and rhythm, respirations, and oxygen levels are closely monitored using state-of-the-art equipment. We use a range of techniques and equipment to help maintain your pet’s body temperature while under anesthesia.

Intravenous catheter with fluids - Administration of intravenous fluids helps the patient recover more quickly from anesthesia, maintains blood pressure, and increases circulation during anesthesia. The intravenous catheter is also used to administer medications if needed.

Pain management - Your pet’s comfort is important to us. We proactively control pain associated with any procedure with appropriate pain management medications.
