While anesthesia is always a risk, all precautions are taken to make it as safe as possible for each pet. An anesthetic plan is made for each individual patient with regard to a current physical exam, breed, age, and laboratory work. Pre-medications, as well as induction and maintenance agents, are chosen and administered according to the procedure and to help decrease the amount of general anesthetic needed. A catheter is placed in the vein to give the doctors and technicians access for fast drug administration as well as fluid support during the entire procedure. A heated water blanket is used to help control body temperature. Anesthetic monitoring is done by a dedicated technician, under the veterinarians supervision, and includes recording ECG, blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation, heart and respiratory rates while under anesthesia. In addition, all pets are closely monitored while waking up, until alert and their body temperature is normal.
