Pet Anesthesia and Patient Monitoring
Anesthesia is a temporary loss of consciousness, where your pet’s level of consciousness is controlled, so they don’t feel pain and don’t move.
Pet Anesthesia and Patient Monitoring in Lake Forest, CA
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.
We begin most general anesthetic procedures by administering a sedative to help the pet relax and decrease any anxiety and pain. We then administer an intravenous drug to provide complete anesthesia and place a breathing tube into the patient’s trachea (windpipe). To maintain the state of unconsciousness, we deliver a gas anesthetic in combination with oxygen through the breathing tube.
Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about your pet receiving general anesthesia or about the procedure for which your pet is scheduled.
