There are certain procedures that we perform on dogs and cats that are challenging for a variety of reasons, one being that they often don't want to be still while doctors and staff are trying to help the animal. They also have a level of stress that comes from being in an unfamiliar environment full of new smells, sights and sounds. These are some of the reasons that the use of sedation and anesthesia is a beneficial way to give pets the full exams and care they need.
There are surgical instances where general anesthesia is necessary, such as spaying, neutering, dental and other surgeries. Anesthetic events are performed multiple times weekly at our facility. We offer many state-of-the-art ways to stage the animals' anesthetic risk and to monitor them during their procedure. We are expertly trained in administering anesthesia, monitoring pets while under anesthesia and recovering animals after their procedure. If you have any concerns about anesthesia for your pet, please call us today at (740) 345-7387. We would be happy to speak with you about staging your pets risk and giving you more information about our anesthetic protocols.
