Anesthesia Safety and Monitoring
Every surgical procedure has its risks, which is why we take extra steps to maintain safety. Before administering anesthesia, we perform pre-anesthetic diagnostics to assess your pet's health and organ function and detect potential problems. Standard pre-anesthetic diagnostics include a Complete Blood Count (CBC), a blood chemistry profile, and ECG analysis to check the heart's electrical impulses. We will pre-medicate your pet with analgesics (painkillers) and antibiotics.
During surgery, we use the safest anesthetics, which means they are easily broken down (metabolized) in the body, resulting in minimal side effects. Your pet will have an IV catheter through which we administer fluids and medications to keep them stable and comfortable.
Once your pet is intubated, an experienced veterinary technician will stand by to monitor your pet throughout their surgery. This includes:
- Blood pressure
- Core body temperature
- Continuous ECG to monitor heart rate
- Blood oxygen levels (pulse oximetry)
We are pleased to offer laser surgery as an option for our patients. Dr. Jordan receives many laser surgery referral cases, as our hospital was one of the first in Houston to utilize this technology. Pets undergoing laser surgery can expect less blood loss, shorter surgery time, less postoperative discomfort, less scarring and a lower risk of infection. The precision and sterility we can achieve using our CO2 laser is truly remarkable, and we're happy to ease our patients' recovery in any way possible.
Just the kindest, pet centered vets in town! They have been so responsive and so helpful...plus they treat exotics. Nice to have one place for all of our animals - Dachshund, Lab, Great Pyrenees and our Flemish Giant rabbit.
Brought my bearded dragon as a first time visitor. The staff was so nice and helpful! I felt very comfortable. The doctors and assistants were also knowledgeable and took time to make sure I was providing the right care for my Tomo.
The staff is amazing here. They helped get my #1 back to his normal, healthy self. Everyone of was kind, helpful, and attentative. 10/10 would recommend.
I also love that you treat so many kinds of animals! We have taken you ferrets, a chicken, a pot bellied pig and ofcourse, dogs. You have done an excellent job with all. I would (and do often!) heartily recommend this clinic. Thank you being so good at your job!
Took our Berber Skink in this weekend and was totally impressed by the caring staff. Dr. Jordan did a great job in diagnosing Skittles' problems. Kim was very patient in explaining what we needed to do to bring him back to health. We would highly recommend them for all your pet family members.
Extremely professional staff, yet personable. Genuine care and concern is something that I noticed on my first visit, which will keep me coming back.
I took my lionhead dwarf rabbit for an initial wellness checkup today and loved Dr. Jordan and Kim! I'm glad to have established Kiki's care here and highly recommend Animal Medical Center of the Village!
