Anesthesia and Pain Management

Main Street Small Animal Hospital

Our team makes it a priority to stay educated on the best approaches to small animal anesthesia. We build a plan unique for each patient so your pet can have the smoothest and safest anesthesia possible. For example, our anesthesia protocol for a 6-month-old cat spay is different than our protocol for a 15-year-old Chihuahua dental.

We practice full monitoring on all our anesthetized patients, including blood pressure, ECG, pulsoximetry, capnograph, and monitoring of all vital signs. Our veterinarians and veterinary technicians regularly attend continuing education seminars and are dedicated to keeping your pets safe before, during, and after their anesthesia.

Our team also practices the most advanced pain management protocols. We believe in a multimodal approach that tries to prevent pain before it starts and manage it until your pet is healed. From local anesthetics and epidurals to opiates and pain patches, our team knows how to keep your pet comfortable during and after its procedure.
