What to Expect if your Pet needs Surgery
Why I.V. Fluids?
- Helps maintain stable blood pressure
- Help maintain body temperature, as anesthesia causes it to drop
- Provides hydration, as the pet has been fasted for surgery
- Aids in the metabolism of anesthetic
Which Monitors Do We Use?
- Doppler– allows us to hear the blood pulsing through the veins to monitor heart rate and an aid in taking blood pressure readings
- Pulse Oximeter– monitors the oxygen in the blood, ensuring the pet is receiving enough oxygen
- Ap Alert– uses the pressure of the breaths, heat, and condensation to measure respiration rate
