Your pets are a part of your family and we remember that when we approach anesthesia – safety is of the utmost importance to us.
Our doctors examine every pet on the morning of an anesthesia and provide an individualized anesthetic plan that will be safe and effective while providing optimum pain control. The level of anesthetic monitoring your pet will receive is far above routine standard of care. We will treat your pet as if it is our own.
Every animal that goes under full anesthesia will have a veterinary nursing assistant assigned to him or her so that vital signs are monitored constantly. We use a continuous ECG on all patients and also monitor blood pressure, blood oxygenation, heart rates, respiratory rates and anesthetic depth constantly until your pet is awake. Watching trends in these numbers helps us to recognize potential dangers before they become reality!
