Advanced Anesthetic Monitoring

At VCH, we believe that every animal that goes under anesthesia deserves the most advanced monitoring available. For this reason, we use an end tidal CO2 monitor, SPO2 monitor, esophageal stethoscope, blood pressure monitor and ECG monitor. We perform a mandatory blood test prior to surgery to verify that the liver and kidney functions are working properly to clear the anesthetics and prevent possible complications. At VCH, we strongly believe that one loss of life due to poor or inadequate monitoring is unacceptable with today’s medical advancements.
