Anesthesia and Patient Monitoring
Making sure our patients remain safe during surgery and other medical procedures is extremely important to us. Our team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians is skilled in using anesthesia and monitoring patients to ensure their safety and provide the most comfortable experience. Anesthesia and patient monitoring vary greatly from clinic to clinic. You can be confident that we use the most effective and up-to-date protocols. The type of anesthesia we use depends on the procedure. Some require general anesthesia, while others may only call for local anesthesia. We also closely monitor every procedure, regardless of whether it’s routine or more advanced. For more specific information on our protocols, please see the individual descriptions or contact us with any questions. Pet owners should ask several questions about anesthesia when "shopping " around the area. Is preanesthetic blood testing required before anesthesia? Do ALL patients recieve an IV catheter and fluids during anesthesia? Is there a dedicated technician to monitor my pet continuosly during anesthesia? Do you use Sevoflurane as your inhalent agent because it's the safest? OUR ANSWER IS YES TO EVERY QUESTION BUT THIS IS NOT THE CASE IN OTHER HOSPITALS
