Anesthesia & Recovery

Prior to performing any surgical procedure, our veterinarians perform a thorough physical exam to identify any existing medical conditions that might endanger your pet’s health. This exam includes a review of your pet’s previous, history, anesthetic history (if available) and running pre-surgical lab work which can help detect potential problems that cannot be recognized with an exam alone. The exam and lab work will help us tailor an anesthetic protocol specific for your pet. 
During surgery, your pet is continuously monitored by a trained and experienced veterinary technician to ensure safe and effective anesthesia.  Pulse oximetry, blood pressure, body temperature, and an EKG are taken on all anesthetized patients and every animal receives IV fluids to protect the heart and kidneys. Our operating table is temperature-controlled to assist in maintaining a constant body temperature during surgery.
Following surgery, your pet is closely monitored and kept warm and comfortable by our attentive staff for a safe recovery. Because pain can negatively affect your pet’s recovery, we also give pain medications post operatively and monitor patients closely for pain. When your pet is ready to go home, you will receive instructions on how to administer any medication and properly care for your pet after surgery to promote a speedy recovery.
