  • General Anesthesia:

  • I understand my pet will have blood drawn for routine screening based on his/her age. This screens for anemia, dehydration, blood sugar, and internal organ function.


    I understand a negative Heartworm Test is required within one year of my pet's procedure, and my pet will be tested if he/she is not up to date at the additional cost of $74.

  • Subcutaneous fluids are given underneath the skin to prevent dehydration and speed anesthetic recovery. I understand my pet will receive Sub-Q fluids during his/her procedure.


    IV fluids are required for pets 7 years of age or older, and recommended for sick pets, or pets who will be under general anesthesia for one hour or more. This is the best way to maitain blood pressure, hydration, and to provide rapid venous access in the event of an emergency. I understand my pet will receive IV fluids during his/her procedure.

  • I understand that pain medication is used with every procedure and aids in a more comfortable and faster recovery. I understand that for most surgical procedures I will be given additional pain medication to give my pet at home
  • Dental Procedures

  • I understand extractions are rare, but may be necessary. Two x-rays and extractions along with additional pain medicine are at an additional cost of $150-$275.

  • Vaccinations

    All animals must be up to date with required vaccines to board in our facility. Any needed vaccines administered will require an exam for the additional cost of $75.

    Any exam, vaccinations and/or testing required for boarding will be done and charged to your account without prior documentation.
  • I hereby give my consent and authorize the use of general anesthesia for my pet. Andover Animal Hospital strives to decrease anesthetic risk by doing pre-operative examinations and labwork. In some cases the doctor may recommend intravenous fluids and/or further diagnostic tests.

    There is always risk with anesthesia. Risk of anesthesia can include cardiac or respiratory arrest, rarely causing death. Other possible anesthetic complications can include allergic reactions, vomiting leading to pneumonia, eye irritation or damage, irritation or injury to the throat, blindness, deafness, cardiac arrhythmias, slow anesthetic recovery, seizures, vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, coughing, excitement, low or elevated body temperature, and organ damage.

    Andover Animal Hospital cannot be held accountable for unforeseen anesthetic complications or cost associated with unforeseen anesthetic complications. I have read and understand the possible complications associated with anesthesia for my pet.

    I understand that my pet is not supervised overnight.
