We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide that extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high risk patients. Our Pre-anesthetic blood work is highly recommended on all patients in order to determine the safest anesthesia for each individual pet. The exact anesthesia selected for use during surgery is determined by the doctor based on blood work, age, physical condition of the pet and the type of surgery. Our anesthetic nurses monitor your pet’s vital signs during all anesthetic procedures. Our trained nurses follow your pet from premedication, into surgery, and through recovery. Your pet is not left alone until they are fully awake and at a safe body temperature.
