Is Anesthesia Safe for My Pet?

There are risks involved with the use of general anesthesia; however, most anesthetic complications can be avoided by close monitoring and excellent patient care. Anesthesia is absolutely necessary for safe and effective dental care. At Sunset Animal Hospital, we take anesthesia safety very seriously. Only the most modern and safest anesthesia medications and protocols are used at our facility. Also, we monitor anesthetic depth very closely, both physically and with the latest technology to ensure that only the amount needed is used for the procedure. In fact, there is a much lighter dose needed than other procedures, such as spays and neuters. The risk of harm from the presence of dental disease is much higher than the risk of well-monitored and properly supported anesthesia.
