Having your pet undergo a procedure requiring anesthesia can be very stressful. There are risks associated with any anesthetic episode. Therefore we highly recommend pre-anesthetic blood testing to minimize those risks. We use the safest available anesthetic agents and each patient is thoroughly monitored during the entire process. We use multiple monitoring devices for heart rate, O2 saturation, pulse, temperature, and blood pressure which aid our Doctors and Licensed Veterinary Technicians in providing a high standard of quality care for each patient.
There are many types of anesthetic regimes including the use of drugs that are injected into a vein or muscle or inhalant drugs that are breathed in and out of the body. Our veterinarians will select the anesthetic regime based on the health of your pet, and on the information obtained from the blood screening, and on the type of surgical procedure to be performed.
