We monitor our patients closely to keep them as safe as possible during procedures that require general anesthesia. A veterinary technician will continually assess your pet’s heart and respiratory rate, blood pressure, and other vital signs to help prevent any anesthetic risk.
We utilize a Cardell touch monitor in the surgery suite and a Cardell veterinary monitor at the dental table as well as a portable monitor that the doctor can also view on a cell phone from the surgery room while another patient is being prepped for surgical procedures. For more specific information on our protocols, please see the individual descriptions or contact us with any questions.
Please feel free to ask us about our patient monitoring protocol or any concerns you might have about your pet’s procedure. We’d be happy to discuss these matters in more detail.
