General anaesthesia is often needed to perform surgery or dentistry for your pet.
Prior to anaesthesia a Veterinarian will examine your pet and formulate the appropriate anaesthetic protocol. This can involve different drug combinations, fluid therapy and heat support. During general anaesthesia your pet is connected to an anaesthetic machine, as well as monitors for heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen levels and blood pressure.
During anaesthesia we will monitor your pet’s vital signs throughout the whole procedure so that the chance of problems occuring are very low. In the unlikely event that the patient does have a problem under anaesthesia, close monitoring means these can be acted upon immediately.
