Anaesthesia & patient monitoring varies greatly among clinics. When you choose your veterinarian, be sure to question the types of anaesthetics used and the protocols for monitoring anaesthesia.

We take every reasonable safety measure to ensure the best possible care during anaesthesia and surgery. Animals are constantly monitored using specialised equipment the same as or comparable to that used in human hospitals. This equipment measures your pet’s heart rate, breathing rate, blood pressure, temperature and oxygen saturation.

Following the anaesthesia, your pet may be drowsy but this should wear off
in a number of hours. In some cases, it may take a day or so before their behaviour returns to normal.
