In offering a wide range of veterinary care for your dog or cat, we may need to perform anesthesia during some procedures. While this can be concerning for some owners, Circle Veterinary Clinic has at our disposal a wide assortment of anesthetics to administer for the safest anesthesia possible for your beloved pet's unique health condition. These include injectable medications and inhalant anesthesia, which is breathed in through an endotracheal tube. Whenever a pet is under anesthesia, one of our technicians monitors your pet's condition directly, carefully evaluates seven vital signs on our anesthesia monitor, and records these assessments. In most cases, intravenous fluids are administered as needed. Your pet's body temperature is maintained using a warm air system (Bair Hugger) as well. Recovery from anesthesia is also carefully monitored. We prioritize pain management and use appropriate medications to eliminate any discomfort your pet may experience. These steps ensure a safe and comfortable recovery to allow your pet a prompt return to your home.
