If your pet should require sedation or general anesthesia, every precaution will be made to ensure their safety and well-being. Anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. We have up to date anesthesia protocols. ECG, heart rate, pulse oximetry, and respirations are monitored while under anesthesia. Pain management is a priority at Glencoe Animal Hospital. Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do therefore pain medications are mandatory for all patients that undergo a surgical procedure here. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care.
