Anesthesia and patient monitoring vary greatly among veterinary hospitals. When choosing a veterinarian, it is important to question the types of anesthetics used and the protocols for monitoring anesthesia. Having your pet on intravenous fluids during an anesthetic is important to maintain blood pressure and proper circulation to the body and leads to a better anesthetic and surgical recovery. Good pain control during anesthesia and after surgery means your pet is more comfortable during the recovery period. In addition, providing adequate pain control post-operatively has a positive effect on healing.
Our anesthetic protocol for a surgical procedure will depend on the age and health status of your pet, as well as the level of pain involved in the procedure.
