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 your dog or cat's 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)
  • Respiration

Dog and Cat Laser Surgery

We are pleased to offer dog and cat 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.
