Integral to our surgical care provided at our practices is the anaesthesia of the patient.
Having a pet undergoing anaesthesia can be a stressful and worrying time for any pet owner. This is understandable because general anaesthesia is not without risks. These risks can be greatly reduced by performing preanaesthetic blood testing and providing intravenous fluids throughout the procedure amongst other things.
The choice of the correct anaesthetic drugs, doses and administration techniques are just as important. Every pet is different when it comes to general anaesthesia. Factors such as body weight, breed and previously diagnosed medical conditions all play a part in our veterinarian’s choice of anaesthetic drugs used.
Our veterinarians are continually reviewing the latest published scientific literature and assessing any new anaesthetic drugs and regimes that become available to ensure we remain as up-to-date as possible in this field.
Your pet’s safety is paramount to us.
