Pet Anesthetic Precautions
Anesthesia is a wonderful blessing but is not without risk. The risk is decreased by taking precautions. As these drugs are metabolized in the liver and kidneys, blood work is important before anesthesia. I.V. fluid therapy during anesthesia keeps the blood pressure at a safe level and gives access to emergency drugs if they are needed. We can cut corners on cost, but we are not willing to cut corners on safety.
The most recent anaesthetic methods and patient monitoring are available at Twin Valley Veterinary Health Services, and we are delighted to provide them. Although there are hazards associated with all forms of anaesthesia, we work to reduce them by teaching our clients about the safe procedures and techniques we use.
- Throughout the entire anaesthetic event, each patient has a specialised technician who is actively keeping track of their vitals.
- We employ cutting-edge warming blankets and pads to regulate the patient’s body temperature adequately while preventing burns and enhancing patient recovery.
- To safeguard and guarantee a patent airway during all surgical procedures, all patients are completely intubated.
- Before, during, and after surgical procedures, we pay close attention to protocols for pain management and alleviation.
- Isoflurane, an anaesthetic for inhalation, and oxygen of the highest quality are used to maintain the safety of all patients.
