Theatre light has adjustable light intensity, height and angle.
Pulse oximetry is used in general anaesthesia to monitor oxygen levels and heart rates. This helps to reduce the risks associated with anaesthesia.
Heating – all animals are provided with heating during surgery to help maintain body temperature which can be affected during anaesthesia.
Fluids – are available for all anaesthetics to regulate blood pressure and blood circulation.
Theatre table – adjustable height and angle to decrease pressure on chest.
Gas Anaesthesia – all our patients are maintained on gas anaesthesia to minimise the risk of overdosage. Gas is expelled quickly from the system
Pain Management – we are very aware that our patients cannot tell us when we are in pain so we give pain relief before surgery to reduce inflammatory chemicals from being released and we maintain pain relief after surgery as well. If it is major surgery we may use morphine as well and discharge patients with a morphine type of painkiller plus a NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug).
We also aim to minimise pain by using local anaesthetic for as many procedures as possible. We want your pets to be happy to come in.
