Anaesthesia and Patient Monitoring

During surgery and other medical procedures, our team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians monitors all patients to ensure their safety. We monitor every procedure, regardless of whether it’s routine or more advanced. The type of anesthesia we use depends on the procedure. Some require general anesthesia, while others may only call for local anesthesia. We are equipped with body temperature pulse oximetry and capometer (to measure carbon dioxide in the blood), and a Bair Hugger to keep body temperature stable. For more specific information on our protocols, please see the individual descriptions or contact us with any questions.
