Anesthesia for Your Pet

Your pet’s safety is always Alpine Animal Hospital’s primary concern whenever anesthesia is involved. Our veterinarians customize the anesthetic protocol for each patient’s individual needs. We strongly recommend pre-anesthetic blood testing. Testing allows us to diagnose and treat previously undetected medical problems and also can guide us in our choice of anesthetic. We also recommend intravenous (IV) fluids on all surgical patients to maintain normal blood pressure and to allow rapid intravenous administration of any medications that might be urgently needed. Your pet’s vital signs are monitored during general anesthesia and surgery using any of the following methods:

Visual assessment and recording of vital signs is done by one of our trained veterinary surgical technicians.
