Anesthesia can be a scary topic for pet owners -- if you are nervous about your pet's upcoming anesthetic event or surgery, you are not alone.  At the Kettle Moraine Veterinary Clinic, we work hard to alleviate concerns through consultation with you and by minimizing risk to your furry friend to keep you both comfortable.  Our anesthetic protocol is safe, effective, and uses the same type of drugs utililzed in human medicine to make your pet's stay with us as easy for them as possible.  Before your pet's anesthesia begins, your veterinarian will do a thorough examination to detect any outward concerns.  The next step is to obtain a blood sample from your pet in order to monitor the function of their organs and ensure that they are functioning properly and are able to handle anesthesia.  If any concerns are noted in the exam or bloodwork, the veterinarian will discuss options with you in going forward. During an anesthetic procedure, intravenous fluids run through a catheter to your pet's vein to keep them warm and hydrated while they sleep. This also gives direct access into your pet's vascular system if the need arises for additional medication during the procedure.  A Certified Veterinary Technician is assigned to your pet at all times, monitors their heart rate, temperature and oxygen levels, and afterward, helps them recover smoothly.  Our goal is to provide your dog or cat the care they need efficiently and effectively, and get them back to your loving arms as soon as possible!
