In offering a wide range of veterinary care for your dog or cat, we may need to perform anesthesia in some situations. This can be concerning for some owners. Circle Veterinary Clinic has at our disposal a wide assortment of drugs to administer 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 7 vital signs on our anesthesia monitor, and records these assessments. IV fluids are administered in most cases as needed. Your pet's body temperature is maintained using a warm air system (Bair Hugger) as well. Recovery from anesthesia is also monitored. We prioritize pain management and use appropriate medications to eliminate any pain your pet may be experiencing. All this is to ensure a safe and comfortable recovery to allow your pet a prompt return to your home.
