how is our anesthesia & surgery different? 

We practice state of the art anesthesia and analgesia to minimize your pet's risks and enhance recovery from surgery, using advanced monitoring equipment and supplies.

When a patient is undergoing  surgery---gas anesthetic and oxygen are supplied through a gas mixing device known as a precision vaporizer and is delivered to the patients lungs via an endotracheal tube.

  • Precise concentration  of Oxygen (O2)- the fuel of metabolism- is monitored by a pulse oximeter illustrated to the right.

  • A capnograph (EtCO2) is a device  that verifies that the endotracheal tube is open and is properly placed in the airways to inflate the lungs assuring the surgical patient is breathing efficiently.

  • Enhanced  safety using opiates such as fentanyl,  administered via continuous rate infusions (CRI)

  • Patient's temperature tends to decrease in surgery, which in turn requires less anesthetics putting the patient to sleep deeper. Your pet's temperature is maintained using a water recirculating blanket until it returns to normal.  

  • Circulation of blood depends on proper blood pressure, which anesthetics  can depress, especially in older pets who are sick. We monitor BP carefully in anesthetizing critically ill and geriatric pets.

  • IV fluids are essential  for safe surgery to maintain blood pressure.

  • We practice aggressive pain control known as pre-emptive analgesia. This means that strong pain relievers are administered before the patient ever feels pain to reduce wind-up phenomena. We find that if we wait for pain to be evident, it takes more drugs and much longer to achieve comfort, while  pain and stress inhibit healing.
