Customized Anesthesia Protocols

Ensuring the comfort and safety of your pet during surgery is our utmost concern and requires an anesthetic and monitoring regimen that adheres to the highest principles and ideals of quality care. We utilize a state-of-the-art monitoring and anesthesia system to ensure your pet's safety during all surgeries.

Before undergoing the procedure, your pet is examined and a pre-surgical blood screen is performed. The results of these tests and your pet's past anesthetic history, breed, age and weight are used to create an individualized anesthesia protocol. During surgery, your pet is cared for by a well-trained and experienced veterinary technician using our multi-parameter monitoring system, which tracks blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature and oxygen level.

Yucca Veterinary Medical CenterPain Management for Your Pet's Complete Comfort

We all know pain hurts, but pain can also have other detrimental effects on your pet's body, too. Pain slows healing, decreases activity and can cause behavioral changes such as aggression, anxiety and depression. Pain also worsens diseases like arthritis, may exacerbate some cancers, and interferes with the bond between you and your pet.

For all these reasons, the team at Yucca Veterinary Medical Center take controlling your pet's pain very seriously. For surgeries as well as for acute and chronic conditions we use all our available and safe resources, including local anesthetics, NSAIDs (non-steroidal medications) and oral and injectable analgesics for the complete comfort of your pet. We also offer laser therapy treatments to address your pet's chronic pain.

Caring for Your Pet After Surgery

Following surgery, your pet is closely monitored and kept warm and comfortable by a dedicated veterinary technician for a safe recovery. As your pet is discharged from the hospital, you will be provided detailed information on how to administer any medication and properly care for your pet after surgery. We are also available to answer any questions or concerns that arise after you and your pet return home – so feel free to give us a call with any questions!
