Anaesthetics have advanced considerably in the last 5 years.
- Prior to an anaesthetic animals are examined to ascertain their suitability.
- Older patients are blood sampled to assess internal organ function as a further safety measure.
- Older patients are given intravenous fluid therapy during the surgical procedure and recovery to maximise circulation to vital organs
- On admission, the appropriate premedication is given by injection. This lightly sedates your animal to reduce stress, reduces the quantity of anaesthetic required, facilitates a gentle recovery and contains very potent pain killing properties.
- Anaesthetic is routinely induced using an ultra short acting anaesthetic into the vein (the same product commonly used in humans). When unconscious a tube is passed down the airway and the anaesthetic is maintained with a gaseous agent called Sevoflurane.
- Sevoflurane is the latest and safest anaesthetic gas available. It is extremely fast acting, causes minimum circulatory depression and organ damage and facilitates an extremely rapid recovery. It is the one used in human hospitals to anaesthetise Babies!
