Ask about the pre-anesthetic blood work, fluids, monitoring during surgery, pain management - there was a vet that always gave Rimadyl for that and I asked that it be replaced with something else. Also let them know any supplements she is on, or other meds. Ask if they do any clotting tests because German Shepherds are known to have clotting disorders.

The MDR1 thing is also something just to review with your vet: Drugs reported to cause problems in dogs that carry the MDR1 mutation. Information from the VCPL at Washington State University.

I want to know all of that before I think about home care. :)
