Making sure our patients remain safe during surgery and other medical procedures

is extremely important to us. Our team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians

are skilled in using anesthesia and monitoring patients to ensure their safety and

provide the most comfortable experience. Anesthesia and patient monitoring vary

greatly from clinic to clinic. You can be confident that we use the most effective

and up-to-date protocols. The type of anesthesia we use depends on the

procedure. Some require general anesthesia, while others may only call for

local anesthesia. We also closely monitor every procedure, regardless of whether

it’s routine or more advanced. For more specific information on our protocols,

please see the individual descriptions or contact us with any questions.
