Reasons Why Anesthesia Is Used

The use of anesthesia is important to help keep your pet from moving around during surgery. This ensures our veterinarian is able to perform the duties necessary without the risk of injuring your pet in the process. In addition, your pet will not suffer from pain during the procedure.

How Safe Anesthesia Is

Our veterinarian will do an evaluation of your pet before their surgery to determine whether they are a candidate for anesthesia use. In most cases, pets fare well with the use of anesthesia over other pain relief methods. Your pet will be monitored throughout their surgery to ensure they have the proper dosage of anesthesia administered before and throughout the process.

The Importance Of Anesthesia

Using anesthesia during a surgical event is extremely important. A pet will not suffer from anxiety or any pain as our veterinarian does a procedure. It aids in keeping a pet calm upon awakening as well. Our veterinarian will be able to provide your pet with pain medication before anesthesia wears off so your pet remains as comfortable as possible as they recover.

How Anesthesia Is Administered

Our vet will administer anesthesia in one of a few different methods. The anesthesia may be given via the airways with the use of a mask, or it may be given in an injectable form. An IV may also be used to keep anesthesia flowing in severe cases.
