Anesthesia & Patient Monitoring
Patient comfort and safety is a priority at Calistoga Pet Clinic. Our experienced medical team provides skilled pain management during and after all surgical procedures, ensuring your pet recovers quickly and with minimum discomfort.
Generally, anesthesia is very safe. However there are always inherent risks–especially if the pet is elderly, very young or very ill. For this reason, your veterinarian will likely suggest a few exams, including a chest X-ray and lab work of blood and urine, before your pet is anesthetized. During the procedure he might need an IV drip; antibiotics may be necessary before and after.
If you have questions about anesthesia or your pet’s procedure, please give us a call at (707) 942-0404.
