Anesthesia for Your Pet’s Dental Care

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 their surgical procedure. Your pet’s anesthetist is solely focused on your pets anesthetic and pain control needs. Our Certified Veterinary Technicians receive additional training for this role. The following parameters are closely monitored for all patients for the duration of the procedure:

  • Heart rate
  • End tidal CO2
  • Oxygen saturation
  • Respiratory Rate
  • Depth of anesthesia
  • Blood Pressure
  • Pain control
  • Body Temperature

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.

Have you ever been told your pet can’t have anesthesia or is at a higher risk for anesthetic complications? Have you heard that your pet is...

  • Too old for anesthesia?
  • Liver is not working well enough for anesthesia?
  • Kidneys are not up for anesthesia?
  • Breed is sensitive to anesthetics?
  • They have had a bad reaction to previous anesthesia?
  • Tongue turns blue when she goes to the vet?
  • Littermate died under anesthesia?

You’re not alone. Many pets are at an increased risk of anesthesia complications due to age, breed or illness.
