We are committed to your pet’s safety and comfort during anesthesia for dental procedures at the Animal Dental Clinic. To ensure our patients’ safety during anesthesia, we start with a detailed medical history, review recent blood work results, and perform a thorough physical exam before anesthesia begins. Anesthetic protocols are tailored for each patient, to select the medications, intravenous fluids, and inhalant flow rate most appropriate for your pet.
Vigilant monitoring of vital signs and depth of anesthesia is essential to supporting your pet’s safety and comfort. At the Animal Dental Clinic, we feel this is so important that we have a Certified Veterinary Technician dedicated to monitoring your pet during anesthesia – that is their primary job and they receive additional training for this role. The following parameters are closely monitored for all patients for the duration of the procedure:
Our highly skilled team works to minimize anesthesia time, monitor your pet closely and provide exceptional care for your pet during dental procedures. To find out more about why we use general anesthesia to support your pet’s safety, see our Professional Dental Cleaning page.
We are thrilled to offer the expertise and experience of a board certified veterinary anesthesiologist. If you or your primary care veterinarian are concerned about anesthesia, you can choose to have Dr. Shafford provide the highest level of anesthesia care before, during and after your pet’s dental procedure.
