Anesthesia protocol is decided at the time of surgery and based on individual patient needs. Ensuring the health and safety of your pet during surgery is of the utmost importance to us and requires an anesthetic and monitoring regimen that adheres to the highest principles and ideals of veterinary medicine. Pre-anesthetic bloodwork is offered for all patients prior to surgery. Anesthesia is based on history, breed, pre-existing conditions and age are used to create an individualized protocol for your pet. We offer many safe choices for injectable anesthetics for induction and use isoflurane or sevoflurane inhalant anesthetics for maintenance. Pre and post operative pain medication is available for elective procedures and included in more involved or painful procedures. Again our goal is to provide quality and safe anesthesia and pain management, so your pet goes home comfortable and recovers safely from its surgery.
