General Anesthesia

General Anesthesia

For certain procedures, your pet will need to be placed under general anesthesia so that he or she will be unconscious, remain still, and not experience any pain. Many pet owners worry about their pets being sedated. We can assure you that modern anesthesia is generally quite safe. To further reduce risk, we perform a physical examination and run blood work ahead of time to identify any underlying health issues. In addition, we follow a strict anesthetic protocol, including monitoring vital signs during the procedure, to ensure the safety of all patients.

We begin most general anesthetic procedures by administering a mild sedative to help the patient relax and decrease any anxiety and pain. We then administer anesthesia intravenously and carefully place a breathing tube through which we deliver a gas anesthetic in combination with oxygen to help maintain the optimal state of unconsciousness.

If you have any questions or concerns about your pet receiving general anesthesia or about the procedure for which your pet is scheduled, please do not hesitate to call. We are here to help!

I brought my rabbit Wanda to Huron East Animal Hospital for an emergency situation. All the staff were friendly, helpful and concerned about Wanda's situation. They were able to book Wanda in quickly for an emergency appointment.Wanda was treated with the utmost care and expertise you could hope... for. They asked many questions, examined Wanda and came up with a treatment plan, giving me options and pricing, so there was no surprise at the end. The prices for this emergency situation were very reasonable.Dr. Johnson answered all my questions and quelled my concerns, with genuine care for Wanda's health and professional advise. Dr. Johnson even drew me a detailed diagram to help explain the situation. Beyond me being put at ease by the entire staff at Huron East Animal Hospital, Wanda was completely calm while being handled the staff and Dr. Johnson. I think Wanda enjoyed her trip to the vet! The clinic even called me a couple of days later to check and see if Wanda's health was improving, which I thought was such a professional courtesy.I really couldn't have asked for more while going through a rough situation with Wanda. If you are looking for a great team to help your pet with ongoing and emergency care, then Huron East Animal Hospital should be your first stop.read more
