General Anesthesia

Pet Surgery

A general anesthetic results in the patient sound asleep ( a state of unconsiousness ) and a loss of sensation ( no pain ) throughout the body. A  general anesthetic procedures involve several steps beginning with a detailed health evaluation, pre-anesthetic blood profile and the administration of a special combo for sedation preceding the actual anesthetic. In most cases an intravenous injection of an anesthetic renders the animal unconscious while a breathing tube is carefully/accuately placed into the patient’s trachea. A gas anesthetic is delivered in combination with oxygen to our patient through the breathing tube to maintain a safe level of anesthesia for the selected procedure.
Advance anesthetic monitoring and strict protocols ensure optimum care for your pet..
