Anesthesia and Patient Monitoring
• During surgery, our veterinarians and veterinary technicians monitor all patients’ vital parameters such as Blood pressure, breathing, pulse and oxygenation, also EKG monitoring is used for senior pets to ensure their safety. The anesthetic protocol depends on the surgical procedures. Sometimes local anesthesia or sedation may be enough, while surgeries such as spay or neuter requires general anesthesia.
Our veterinarians will examine your pet and perform preanesthetic blood testing before surgery. We begin all general anesthetic operations by administering a sedative to help the patient relax and decrease pet anxiety. We then induce anesthesia by injecting an intravenous anesthetic drug to provide complete anesthesia and place an endotracheal breathing tube into the patient’s trachea. The surgical anesthetic plane is maintained a gas anesthetic mixed with oxygen through the breathing tube. We always keep you informed on your pet’s progress.
For more details on our anesthetic protocols, please speak to our veterinarians or contact us with any questions.
