    For Harlea's spay we were given the option of bloodwork and ekg as the pain meds were already included in the price. We went ahead and had both done as it will provide base lines in the future should a condition arise that would warrant another test. As far as the pain meds go..... Yeah they can be a waste. We only gave Harlea one dose when we brought her home and thats it.

    They likely already use it, but before I'd ever put Lola out, I'd make sure they use iso

    I looked on their website just to see if they would have it and it states this "Virtually every surgical procedure done in dogs and cats requires intubation and gas anesthesia. The modern gas anesthetics are halothane, isoflurane and sevoflurane. Methoxyflurane is out-of-date." Now I am unsure if it is mixed or they choose which one it is or if its all one thing... lol I dont have much knowledge on this but I can def always ask them.

    I'd specifically ask which one they will use ... actually request they use isofluorane and that other one ... @desertskybulldogs, which one is it again? All I can remember is that it ends with fluorane as well.

    I made sure the vet used that, and she appreciated that I asked. Never be afraid to ask! It's better that we find out now than later in case we don't agree with their decision.

    As for the pain meds, they gave us a liquid form that we can save and use at a later date and for other circumstances (such as Punkin's arthritis), so we purchased a bottle.

    Hi, my vet also did blood work before surgery, but that was routine, but she did offer extra fluids at an extra cost, and I opted for it. She didn't push it, but said it was better for her, as she would be more comfortable and her pain medications could be given to her through the IV. It's not a lot of extra cost, and if it keeps her more comfortable I think it is worth it.
