Many pet owners are curious about what is involved when their pet is placed under anesthesia. At Apple Country Veterinary Hospital your pet’s safety and comfort are our top priority so you can be sure
that your pet will receive only the best and safest anesthetic and surgical care.
Our procedures include the following:
•Pre-Anesthetic Blood Work—ensures your pet is healthy enough to undergo a surgical procedure and that its internal organs can safely process the anesthesia.
•IV Catheter Placement—fluids are given during surgery to maintain blood pressure and to help your pet recover quickly from the anesthesia.
•Gas Anesthesia—safe anesthetic gas is used to anesthetize your pet during their surgical procedure.
•Experienced Monitoring Support—our trained technicians use state-of-the-art anesthetic monitors to continuously monitor your pet’s pulse rate, oxygen levels and blood pressure.
•Pain Medication—is administered prior to and after surgery to ensure your pet’s comfort. Post-surgical laser therapy treatments are given to all surgical patients to decrease pain and inflammation and to promote healing.
