Anesthesia for Cats and Dogs in Fayetteville, GA
Anesthesia is perhaps the most stressful aspect of veterinary surgery, as lack of information, previous negative experiences and/or general “parental” anxiety can make you fearful of having your beloved pet anesthetized. That is why we are here: The trusted specialists from Fayette Veterinary Medical Center are dedicated to providing complete care when your dog or cat is due for a procedure that requires anesthesia in Fayetteville, GA.
Originating from the Greek word for “absence of sensation,” anesthesia is utilized for a wide range of procedures to relax your pet’s body and – most importantly – prevent him or her from experiencing pain. Depending on the scale of the treatment and anticipated level of discomfort, your pet will receive either a local or general anesthetic. Local anesthetics numb an isolated area on the body, whereas general anesthetics cause complete unconsciousness.
At our veterinary clinic, we work with state-of-the-art anesthetics for a variety of different needs, and we have protocols in place to tailor the type and amount of anesthesia to your pet’s distinct health condition. We use many of the same anesthetic substances that are used in human surgeries, and we monitoring your pet’s breathing, heart rate, body temperature, blood pressure, and blood oxygen and carbon dioxide levels every second that he or she is anesthetized.
