Anesthesia

Anesthesia at Petmed is always 'Gold Standard'. Your Vets

During General Anesthesia your pet will always receive:

  • Gold Standard Care
  • Use of the safest anaesthetic drugs
  • Constant anesthetic monitoring during surgery and recovery by a qualified veterinary nurse
  • The nurse will be with your pet right through the procedure and during recovery
  • Monitoring includes blood pressure, blood oxygen levels, respiratory rate, body temperature and heart rate.
  • Intravenous Fluid therapy is recommended and offered to all pets undergoing general anaesthesia
  • ECG monitoring is also available during anesthesia for cardiac or compromised patients
  • Use of appropriate pain relief during recovery.

Some procedures ( X-Rays and minor surgical procedures) may be performed just as safely and effectively under sedation rather than full general anesthesia. There will always be a qualified nurse monitoring your pet in these situations as well.
