Anesthesia at the Vet for Dogs and Cats

One of the most important services we provide for our pet clients is anesthesia. This is a sometimes a necessary procedure in order for us to be able to offer certain kinds of treatment. It is extremely important that anesthesia be administered by an expert who understands correct dosage and size ratios so that there are no mistakes. For instance, cats can be more sensitive to anesthesia, so they would most likely be given a much lower dose than a dog of the same size. Our Boerum Hill vets have many years of experience in administering anesthesia and can do so with the utmost safety and care.

Reminders from Your Veterinarian for Post-Anesthesia Care

As for owners, here are a few important tips to ensure your pet is comfortable and safe both before and after he has anesthesia:

· Dogs and cats should not eat anything for 12 hours unless specified by the Doctor

· Someone should remain with pet until the anesthesia has worn off

As long as you follow the guidelines set by your veterinarian, your pet should have no problems taking anesthesia, during any planned procedures or in getting back to normal after all is said and done.
