Anesthesia Monitoring At BVS

July 29, 2019
By: Dr. Elisabeth Ducoing

Here at Benbow Veterinary Services, we take pride in providing the highest quality of care for our patients before, during, and after any anesthetic procedure.

Before every surgery, we offer pre-anesthetic bloodwork which can aid in the detection of any unseen illness and help our doctors choose the proper anesthetic protocols to follow for your pet's individual needs. During our surgeries and dental cleanings, a technician is always present to aid in monitoring of our patients with the doctor. Our electronic monitoring systems monitor heart rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate, carbon dioxide output, and oxygenation of the blood. Our patients are warmed with a Baer hugger which helps to regulate their body temperature, and an intravenous catheter is placed, and IV fluids are given throughout the entire procedure to help maintain normal blood pressure. At Benbow Veterinary Services, we also offer acupuncture for your pet during anesthetic procedures, which helps to regulate circulation and decrease pain and inflammation. Finally, while your pet is waking up from their procedure, a technician is warming them with blankets, continuously monitoring their gum color and respiration, and of course, giving them lots of love! So much care and attention goes into every one of our surgical procedures and dental cleanings, and we take pride in being able to offer every pet owner the peace of mind that comes with high-quality anesthetic monitoring.

We are so excited to announce that we are now accepting walk-ins at our hospital! We are still accepting scheduled appointments, but we will now also welcome everyone to come in with no appointment when they need us.

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you and your pet soon!
