We use several monitoring devices during your pet's anesthetic. A registered veterinary technician continually assesses your pet's vital signs during the procedure. Although the risk of an anesthetic death in a normal healthy pet is very rare, our monitoring devices and procedures allow us to respond to an anesthetic emergency faster. Faster responses can save lives.

Please call or visit our facility to learn more about the procedures.
