Yes blood work and physical was done.
Cat did not have any heath problems. In fact he was in particularly good shape. Not over weight or under weight. (10 pounds which was ideal for his size)
Yes he was on oxygen and ekg
Vet used ketamine and used slightly less than the recommended dosage for his weight
The cat had been put under 3 times previously before with ketamine for teeth cleaning and an extraction. However it has been 4 years since the last time he was anesthetized.
