I understand that there are inherent risks and potential side effects in any dental/anesthetic procedure which may include but are not limited to the following:
ANESTHESIA Pre-surgical blood tests and physical examination will enable us to assess and minimize the risk of anesthesia to your pet.
MONITORING We minimize anesthetic risk by monitoring heart rate and rhythm, respiration rate, oxygenation, and depth of anesthesia during the procedure.
CATHETERIZATION For sterility, hair will be shaved over a vein on the leg so that an intravenous catheter can be placed to provide us with an easy route to administer medications and fluids during the procedure.
CLEANING An ultrasonic scaler is used to remove calculus from the teeth. The teeth are then polished, and a fluoride foam is applied.
PAIN MANAGEMENT We will proactively manage pain by administering appropriate pain medications. As with any drug, side effects may be associated with the administration.
