We require pre-operative blood work to be done with the primary/referring veterinarian:

  • We require a CBC and comprehensive chemistry panel with electrolytes for all of our patients. A thyroid profile and/or urinalysis is highly recommended, but not required. If the patient is under 7 years of age, the blood work must be done within 1 year of the procedure. If the patient is 7 years or older, the blood work must be done within 6 months of the procedure.
  • If your patient has oral cancer or a suspicion of cancer, we recommend 3-view thoracic radiographs before treatment.
  • Our doctors will do a comprehensive examination of your patient before the dental procedure. If the patient has any special anesthetic concerns (heart murmur, seizures, kidney disease, etc.) additional diagnostics may be required.
  • If the patient is scheduled to have Dr. Lukasik, DACVAA present, she requires a CBC, comprehensive chemistry panel with electrolytes, and urinalysis be performed within one month of the dental procedure.

Please contact our team for recommended pre-visit pharmaceuticals (anti-nausea, GI protectants, and anti-anxiety) before the patient’s procedure.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call (505) 471-0747.
