Bentley is placed in a kennel while the nurses work out his medication. His kennel has his name on it and his lead is labelled with his owners’ name. As Bentley is over 8yrs old he is termed ‘geriatric’. We routinely offer owners of elderly pets a pre-anaesthetic blood test, which will check the liver and kidney function to ensure they will cope with the anaesthetic. Bentley’s bloods were all normal – which is great!
