Anaesthesia and Patient Monitoring

During surgery and other medical procedures, our team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians monitor all patients to ensure their safety. We monitor every procedure, regardless of whether it’s routine or more advanced. The type of anaesthesia we use depends on the procedure. Some require general anaesthesia, while others may only call for local anaesthesia. For more specific information on our protocols, please see the individual descriptions or contact our veterinary team with any questions.
