Surgical Anesthesia

We utilize the most modern anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety for our patients. This is especially important for older or high-risk pets. Using the most modern equipment, we consistently check vital signs during all anesthetized procedures in order to ensure your pet’s absolute safety. Our anesthesia regimens are also personalized for each individual pet. Through a pre-surgery assessment of weight, vitals, and condition as determined by pre-surgical blood work, we accurately dose anesthesia – every pet, every time. Our patients experience a carefully thought out and customized plan to make a smoother and safer surgery, and a dedicated staff member asssigned exclusively to their care until they awake from anesthesia.
