It is extremely important that you are reachable by phone today. In the case of medical emergencies and unexpected treatment decision making, the doctor will need your permission and time is critical both during medical emergencies and when a pet is anesthetized.

Patient must be current on Rabies vaccination, fecal ova and parasites testing, as well as have a current canine Heartworm/Lyme/Ehrlichia/Anaplasmosis test or Feline Leukemia/Feline Immunodeficiency virus or these procedures will be performed today at my expense.
All patients under anesthesia will have a physical examination, anesthetic, and recovery monitoring, fluid therapy, and pain management during their stay.
If live fleas, flea larva, or flea dirt is found on my pet, they will be administered a medical flea and tick preventative while at Healing Paws Veterinary Care, and I will be responsible for the cost of that product even though it is not listed in my treatment plan.
All anesthetic patients should have a small meal between 10 pm and midnight the night before their procedure, and then they should not receive any food or treats after that time unless otherwise directed by their doctor.
All anesthetic patients should have access to water at all times (including the morning of their procedure) unless otherwise directed by their doctor.
All anesthetic patients should receive their normal medications as well as their pre-anesthetic medications that were sent home at their anesthesia preparatory visit at their normal schedules unless otherwise directed by their doctor. Pets that require morning medication should be given that medication manually or with no more than one total teaspoon of food as food can induce vomiting during anesthesia. If you are unable to give your pet their morning medication, you must bring it along with you to the appointment, and you may need to take your pet home and reschedule their visit for another day.
