When your pet requires anesthesia we will always be using the best equipment to monitor your pet. At all times a certified veterinary technician or Dr. Fordham will be monitoring your pet under anesthesia. Just like in humans we will monitor oxygen saturation, blood pressure, ECG (heart rhythm), Carbon Dioxide levels, temperature, respiration, and pulse continuously. Each patient will also have their airway secured and an IV catheter in place to provide fluid support that will also allow quick access to provide medications if needed to support your pet. Once the procedure is done we will recover your pet and continue to monitor closely. We will also have access to a board certified anesthesiologist to help if your pet condition requires more advanced monitoring due to an underlying health issue.
