When your pet requires surgery, anesthesia or some degree of sedation may be necessary. Naturally this is a trying time for most pet owners as anesthesia is never without risk. This is true for humans as well. At Pet Point Animal Hospital we at all times minimize this risk for your pet by adhering to strict anesthetic protocols before, during and after the procedure. Your pet will get a full physical exam before surgery of any kind. Before anesthesia, blood work to ensure your pet is healthy enough to withstand the procedure will be done in most cases. Safe drug protocols individualized for your pet will be used. Your pet will be adequately monitored all through the surgical process.
