At Advanced Animal Care, we understand that the thought of anesthesia for your feline friend can be a cause for concern. Rest assured, we take every precaution necessary to ensure the safest and most comfortable experience for your beloved cat. Our team of highly skilled veterinarians and technicians is dedicated to providing individualized care and a comprehensive approach to anesthesia, making your pet's well-being our top priority.
Before any procedure requiring anesthesia, our team will develop an individualized pre-anesthetic plan tailored specifically to your cat's unique needs. We take the time to:
- Assess Your Cat's Health
We conduct a thorough physical examination to evaluate your cat's overall health. This helps us identify any underlying medical conditions that could affect the anesthesia process.
- Review Medical History
Understanding your cat's medical history is essential. We consider previous illnesses, surgeries, allergies, or any past reactions to anesthesia to make the process as safe as possible.
- Tailor the Anesthesia Protocol
Each cat is different, and our team will determine the most appropriate anesthetic agents and techniques based on your cat's individual needs. This personalized approach minimizes the risks associated with anesthesia.
In order to provide the highest level of safety during anesthesia, we conduct comprehensive lab work. This includes:
- Blood Tests
Blood tests are crucial to evaluate your cat's organ function, red and white blood cell counts, and blood clotting abilities. These tests help us detect any hidden issues and guide us in selecting the safest anesthesia for your cat.
- Electrocardiogram (ECG)
An ECG is performed to assess your cat's heart function. It helps us identify any abnormalities and ensures that your cat's heart is in good condition for anesthesia.
Throughout the entire anesthesia process, our team closely monitors your cat's vital signs, including heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and carbon dioxide levels. This continuous monitoring allows us to detect and respond to any changes promptly.
After the procedure, we don't stop caring for your cat. Post-anesthetic recovery is equally important, and our team will closely monitor your pet as they wake up from anesthesia. We provide a comfortable and warm recovery environment to ensure a smooth transition back to consciousness.
