Procedures done on dogs and cats are challenging for a variety of reasons, one being that they often don’t want to be still while doctors and staff are trying to help the animal. They also have a level of stress that comes from being in a an unfamiliar environment. Because of this, the use of anesthesia is a beneficial way to give pets the care they need.
The use of anesthesia is safe, and we are expertly trained in administering it and caring for patients that are under.
We require pre-anesthetic bloodwork to make sure that each animal is safe and healthy for anesthesia. In elderly animals, we also perform chest x-rays to make sure that the heart and lungs are functioning well to be able to handle the anesthesia. These pre-anesthetic procedures are important in ensuring that we use the right medications and catching any underlying issues that could make anesthesia unsafe. We take pride in treating these animals like family and keeping them as safe as possible during these times.
If you have any concerns about anesthesia for your pet, please call us today at (281) 334-4666. We would be happy to speak with you and assuage any fears you may have.
