General anesthesia given as a gas or intravenously is the safest and most common method of administering anesthetics in pets. While gas is the most common method of inducing general anesthesia in the past, intravenous injection is also used with similar results, allowing your pet to fall asleep and awaken smoothly. Modern anesthetic monitors also reduce the risk involved with surgery, making surgical procedures on pets safer than ever before.
Your pet’s ECG (heart electrical activity), heart rate, blood pressure, and blood oxygenation levels will be closely monitored during surgery. Your pet’s body temperature will be maintained during and after surgery through the use of warm blankets or heating pads.
Animals experience pain just as people do, so although your pet may not show obvious symptoms of discomfort, a surgical procedure will involve pain. We require that any pet undergoing a painful procedure be given pain medication. Type and amount of pain medication will be dependent on how serious or invasive the procedure is.
