Anesthesia

Anesthesia is an essential part of keeping your pet comfortable and safe during surgery. While we understand that the process can be stressful for pet parents and is not without risk, our skilled and experienced anesthesiologists take every precaution necessary to minimize danger to your best friend’s health. That begins with a comprehensive round of blood work to make sure your animal companion is healthy enough for anesthesia.

Every patient undergoing anesthesia will receive an IV catheter placed in their arm that allows us quick access for administering any needed medications. From the moment your pet is put under anesthesia to even after they’re awake, a dedicated assistant will monitor every vital sign and alert the doctor to any changes. 

Our anesthesiologists provide skilled pain management during and after all surgical procedures, ensuring your pet recovers quickly and with minimum discomfort. We will walk you through the entire process, giving you the tools to make informed decisions regarding your pet’s treatment options.
