Anesthesia and Monitoring
In our continuing efforts to provide both you and your pet with the best and most advanced surgical care, we have invested heavily in the latest anesthetic administration and cardiovascular monitoring equipment. Surgeries are performed in our state-of-the-art operating room where the most up-to-date pain management techniques and the safest anesthetic agents are used.
Anesthesia is individualized for your pet based upon a number of factors including the type of procedure, his or her pre-existing conditions, blood test values, age, breed and prior anesthetic experience. We limit the amount of anesthesia by employing pre-medications, local anesthetics, epidurals and by using continuous rate infusions of analgesic drugs.
During anesthesia and surgery, your pet is constantly monitored by a trained veterinary nurse as well as with advanced electronic monitoring devices that measures 6 vital parameters (ECG, respiration, pulse oximeter, capnomitry, core body temperature and blood pressure). Additionally, your pet receives intravenous fluids to maintain blood pressure and hydration.
Our commitment to providing the highest quality care and comfort to you and your beloved pet extends well beyond our four walls. We welcome your visit and your question.
