Many pet parents dread the thought of their furry companions undergoing anesthesia. This fear often prevents pets from receiving the medical care they need and deserve.

When you trust our skilled and experienced team to manage your pet's anesthetic care, you can rest assured that your pet is in capable hands.
Why Is Anesthesia Necessary?
Some veterinary procedures need to be performed under anesthesia, including dentistry, surgery, and some diagnostic imaging. We do not want your pets to feel pain whenever possible, and the last thing we want is a stressed pet moving during a procedure requiring precision. Any movement could potentially harm the animal and may lead to complications.
Caring For Your Pet After Anesthesia
Make sure you carefully follow the discharge instructions we will provide you. It is important to avoid leaving your pet alone with a small child or another animal. Even the most even-tempered pets may act unpredictably while recovering from anesthesia, which can have lasting effects on their behavior for several days.
