General Information Regarding Anesthesia.
Anesthesia & Monitoring– We use the same safe Isoflurane and Sevoflurane gas that is often used in human medicine. Both gases are primarily eliminated through the respiratory tract rather than through the kidneys or the liver. This helps to reduce the risks associated with anesthesia and allows for a quicker recovery. Your pet is closely monitored throughout the entire procedure/anesthesia. Your pet’s temperature, blood pressure, heart rate and rhythm, respirations and oxygen levels are continuously checked by our staff and modern electronic monitoring equipment.
The intravenous catheter can save vital time in the rare event of an anesthesia complication.
We recommend an IV catheter for every patient as an important safety precaution.
Pre-anesthetic Blood Safety Screen (Kidney & liver)+ PCV
The pre-anesthetic blood profile helps alert our doctors to the presence of dehydration, anemia, infection, diabetes and/or kidney or liver disease that could complicate the procedure.
Our surgical laser can allow speedier recovery for common surgeries (spays, neuters, lump removal), reduce bleeding & patients feel less pain, swell less and often go home sooner and happier.
