Undergoing Anesthesia

The thought of your pet undergoing anesthesia is often an uneasy feeling. While anesthesia does have its risks, having a well-trained and equipped surgical team helps us to minimize potential complications. The comfort and overall well-being of your pet is our primary concern, and we take all the necessary preventative measures before, during and after administering anesthesia to ensure their safety.

  • Before Surgery
    • A thorough physical exam is performed and bloodwork is performed to screen for abnormalities
    • Additional diagnostics such as x-rays or ultrasound may be indicated
  • During Surgery
    • We perform intensive monitoring at a level comparable to human medicine
    • Electrocardiography (ECG/EKG)
    • Blood pressure monitoring
    • Temperature monitoring
    • Pulse oximetry: monitors oxygenation of blood
    • Capnography: monitors concentration of carbon dioxide in the blood
  • After Surgery
    • Patients are monitored in our Intensive Care Unit

Pain Management

Our doctors and technicians understand how to recognize signs of pain and are excellent at managing these symptoms. Pain assessment before and after surgery is unique to each patient and comfort levels are assessed throughout your pet’s procedure, surgery, and hospitalization. We will often use a multimodal approach to pain management which may include constant rate infusions (CRI’s), injectable pain medications, local anesthesia, oral pain medications, and transdermal pain medications.
