Ensuring Safe Anesthesia Procedures for Your Pet

While anesthesia is always a risk, all precautions are taken to make it as safe as possible for each pet. An anesthetic plan is made for each individual patient based on a current physical exam, breed, age, and laboratory work. Pre-medications and induction, as well as maintenance agents, are chosen and administered according to the procedure to help decrease the amount of general anesthetic needed.

The Process

A catheter is placed in the vein to give the veterinarians and technicians access to fast drug administration as well as fluid support during the entire procedure. A heated water blanket is used to help control body temperature. Anesthetic monitoring is done by a dedicated technician under veterinarian supervision and includes recording ECG, blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation, and heart and respiratory rates while under anesthesia. In addition, all pets are closely monitored while waking up until alert and their body temperature is normal.
