It says they do them, so when the time comes around I shall ask for that. Thank you!

It's hooked up to a dog in 5 places and monitors the heart rhythm. We used it in almost all at-risk patients so we could medicate/lighten anesthesia as needed.

I didn't read the whole thing but the first part is accurate/good.

We use an ECG for all our surgery patients. We used to do them pre-op but stopped for whatever reason.

I would make sure if you spay her she has good monitoring. We do ECG, heart rate, respiration rate, temperature, CO2, O2, reflexes, BP...maybe some more stuff but I don't do surgeries much so I don't remember if there's more. We also have most animals have an IV catheter and fluids, and of course pre-op bloodwork. It makes for a pricey spay, but to me it's worth the safety of the animal especially if they're high-risk (I think our spay is around $400, maybe more :P)
