Anesthetic Services

We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin

of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients:

  • EKG monitoring to ensure proper cardiac conduction of the heart is evaluated
  • Pulse oximetry to measure the saturation of oxygen in the blood
  • End tidal C02 measurement to measure how well the patient is ventilated and breathing
  • Temperature monitoring
  • Oxygen levels administered are carefully measured and watched
  • Intubation into the trachea to allow for accurate control of anesthesia and oxygen to the patients
  • Blood pressure machines to allow our anesthetists to monitor vital cardiovascular functions while the dog or cat is under anesthesia
  • Injectable premedication to aid in the relaxation and comfort of the patient before surgery
  • Gas anesthesia to lessen the recovery time of patients so they may go home sooner
  • A full spectrum of anti-pain medications and injections to offer comfort to our pets.
