We monitor our patients to keep them as safe as possible during procedures that require general anesthesia. A veterinary technician will continually assess your pet’s heart and respiratory rate, blood pressure, and other vital signs to help prevent any anesthetic risk.
We ensure that every patient undergoing a general anesthesia is equipped with intravenous fluids. If we determine that the pet is having any untoward effects from the anesthesia we can intervene immediately with i.v. fluids in place.
Please feel free to ask us about our patient monitoring protocol or any concerns you might have about your pet’s procedure.
