A note about anesthesia
Dr. Treat patients requiring surgery and dental cleaning will be put under anesthesia to complete the necessary procedure. We understand that the thought of putting your companion under anesthesia can be daunting, but our veterinary team is experienced in the art of anesthesia and will work closely with you and your pet to ensure the best outcome.
For every pet undergoing anesthesia, we perform a thorough preanesthetic examination, including a stethoscopic exam of the heart. Bloodwork and heart screening (electrocardiogram, ECG) are performed to determine whether your pet is healthy enough for anesthesia and we will always let you know if we find anything of concern. We formulate a personalized anesthesia plan for your pet based on the age and breed, the presence of pre-existing conditions, and any noted preanesthetic testing abnormalities.
Every patient is monitored closely throughout the entire procedure and recovery, and we will send you home with clear instructions on how to care for your furry companion following the anesthetic procedure.
