Importance of Anesthesia During Surgery
Most surgeries on animals will require anesthesia; it plays an essential role in your pet’s surgical procedure, as it helps to ensure that your pet feels no pain and relax so that veterinarians can complete the procedure.
There are two types of anesthesia: local and general. Local anesthetics are used to numb certain areas of the body while general anesthesia keeps a pet unconscious during their procedure. General anesthesia is necessary for most common pet procedures we perform.
Your pet’s needs for anesthesia will vary based on their size, age, health history and other considerations. The veterinary team at Kind Vet Care is experienced with different anesthesia needs and will be able to recommend the proper protocol for your pet.
There are some risks with anesthesia during any medical procedure that can range from mild reactions to fatality. However, with proper planning, careful monitoring and adequate care, these risks can be minimized.
