Patient Monitoring

During general anesthesia, our patients are monitored closely by a registered Animal Health Technologist for heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen levels and exhaled carbon dioxide levels.

Body temperature is also monitored.

Monitoring these parameters allows us to intervene earlier and prevent any anesthetic risk to your pet. We chart your pet’s statistics every 5 minutes from the moment he or she is anesthetized to the time when he or she wakes up.
