Anesthesia and Patient Monitoring

Making sure our patients remain safe during surgery and other medical procedures is extremely important to us. Our team of veterinarians and veterinary assistants/technicians are skilled in using anesthesia and monitoring techniques that ensure our patients remain safe and comfortable throughout their surgery or procedure. Anesthesia and patient monitoring vary greatly from clinic to clinic. You can be confident that we use effective, safe and up-to-date protocols.The type of sedation or anesthesia we use depends on the procedure. Some patients require general anesthesia, while others may only need sedation, local anesthesia or other techniques. We closely monitor every procedure, regardless of whether it’s routine or more advanced - all pets deserve the best we can offer.
