Your pet is positioned on a heated table pad that detects changes in body temperature. Intravenous fluids are given to support the cardiovascular system. Our preoperative area and recovery areas are arranged so that your pet need not ever be out of our sight.
We monitor our patients closely to keep them as safe as possible during procedures that require general anesthesia. A veterinary technician will continually assess your pet’s heart and respiratory rate, blood pressure, and other vital signs to help prevent any anesthetic risk.
Please feel free to ask us about our patient monitoring protocol or any concerns you might have about your pet’s procedure. We’d be happy to discuss these matters in more detail.
