We don’t want to see your pet in pain just as much as you don’t want to see them in pain. Gresham Animal Hospital will include pre-medications and local anesthetics; injectable and pain-relievers that are inhaled as well as oral pain medications to go home when appropriate. We don’t want you to worry about your pet being in any preventable pain. Read more about our pet Anesthesia practices below.
We care for your pet and just like in human hospitals your pet receives gas (inhalant) anesthesia…the same ones a human would get! These machines are tested and calibrated to insure they are working properly for the safety of your pet. We tailor your pets anesthesia and pain protocol on an individual basis. Your pet is unique and so should their anesthesia and pain management.
Also, just as when we sleep we have blankets. Your pet gets the same…every surgical patient gets a warming circulating water blanket.
We have a designated surgical suite (just as in human hospitals) where no one enters the room without a cap and mask for your pet’s protection. Just as when we sleep we have blankets. Your pet gets the same…every surgical patient gets a warming circulating water blanket. This helps to keep them from having a critically unsafe drop in body temperature during surgery and promotes faster healing and recovery.
