How safe is general anesthesia for teeth cleaning or other types of surgery?
General anesthesia always carries a degree of risk in any species. However, we minimize this risk by requiring all animals have a blood screening prior to the procedure to ensure that there are no underlying problems. Our veterinarians use only the most current, safest anesthetic agents. A Registered Veterinary Technician is always assisting the veterinarian. Your pet is closely monitored before, during, and after the anesthetic to ensure a safe recovery. We care for each patient as if they are our own pet.
