We don’t cut any corners, especially when it comes to monitoring your pet’s anesthesia. Our anesthesia monitoring equipment includes the following parameters:
- Your pet’s level of oxygenation of their blood
- EKG (your pet’s heart rhythm)
- Blood pressure
- Carbon dioxide level (to monitor their breathing)
- Body temperature
All anesthetized animals have an intravenous catheter placed and will be on IV fluids during anesthesia, to support their blood pressure and kidney function.
We also have a state of the art patient warmer called a “hot dog” warmer. By keeping our patients warm throughout anesthesia, it allows us to get our patients back home as soon as possible.
