All the best to Capote in his future procedure.
With regard to the labwork (pre-anesthetic work up), we opted in for this when our little one had his procedure performed -- the two bonuses being 1) having the ability to identify and screen for any significant pathology with Capote, your vet might not be aware of through a simple physical examination. And 2) we kept a copy of his blood work (Modified Chemistry Panel (an assessment of both renal and hepatic function) and a Compete Blood Count) to serve as a baseline "normal" should Hank have any problems in the future.
Need I say more?
