There is no such thing as risk-free anesthesia, however we make it our priority to keep that risk as low as possible. We do this by developing an individual anesthetic plan for each of our patients. This will typically include a premedication to help relax your pet before the procedure, as well as a smooth induction into general anesthesia.
Our veterinary nurses monitor each patient very closely while they are under anesthesia. We monitor important vital signs including heart rate, respiration rate, and body temperature.
In addition to the trained senses of our astute doctors and nurses, we use a state of the art monitoring system from SurgiVet. This allows us to keep track of the vital signs, ECG for the heart rate and rhythm, blood pressure, and more.
If you have any questions or concerns about your pet and anesthesia, be sure to speak with your pets’ veterinarian before the procedure.
