Before we give your pet any sedative or pain medication, we check their health status by conducting a thorough physical exam and pre-anesthetic testing. This allows us to identify potential issues that require special care, such as dehydration or anemia. Next, we place an IV catheter to ensure immediate venous access in case of an emergency, in addition to providing IV fluids to bolster blood pressure and help your pet’s body flush out anesthetic agents. We also use state-of-the-art monitoring equipment to assess your pet’s vital signs throughout their procedure. We take every precaution possible, and use all the tools at our disposal, to ensure your furry friend’s safety while they are under anesthesia.
