As with all our anesthetic procedures, your pet receives a complete physical exam and we customize the anesthesia protocol based on your pet’s age, health and pre-anesthetic bloodwork results. All patients are on heated water blankets to prevent hypothermia, maintained on IV fluids and your pet’s blood pressure, EKG, heart rate, respiratory rate and tissue oxygenation are monitored closely. Pain management is addressed if any procedure warrants it. There is a veterinarian and certified veterinary technician present with your pet at all times. They recover in a heated cage under close supervision.
