Greendale Village Vet is committed to making anesthesia as safe as possible for every patient.
Procedures and anesthetic agents are kept up to date with current recommendations and protocols.
We use state-of-the-art equipment.
Our anesthetic machines are inspected semiannually by a certified anesthesia technician.
Each anesthetic machine is equipped with a delivery system that provides one of the safest inhalation anesthesia procedures available.
Each anesthetic machine is equipped with a ventilator system that breathes for the patient throughout the duration of the procedure. This provides a significant benefit to the patient by constantly maintaining good air exchange and oxygenation.
All staff members continually pursue continued education in the field of anesthesia.
All patients under anesthesia are placed on a heated, circulating water blanket and covered throughout the procedure to maintain proper body temperature. During postoperative recovery, each patient is placed on a padded absorbent mat and covered with a towel until fully recovered. Controlling perioperative (during surgery) and postoperative pain that could cause the patient discomfort is a very important part of any surgical or dental procedure. Our patients can’t tell us whether they hurt. Pain control is provided with the following protocols:
Injectable medications given during and after surgical procedures
Various medicines given orally
We use state-of-the-art monitoring equipment that enables us to constantly evaluate the patient’s status throughout the anesthetic procedure. Our monitoring systems provide information on the following:
Pulse oximetry (hemoglobin oxygen saturation)
Core body temperature
Most importantly, our staff is made up of highly qualified, conscientious, caring, certified veterinary technicians and assistants with many years of experience in the veterinary profession. They consider anesthesia and recovery a very important responsibility.
