All dogs and cats are carefully screened through pre-surgical bloodwork and a thorough physical exam before surgery. Pre-surgical bloodwork gives us essential information about your pet’s kidney, liver, and heart function to be sure your pet is healthy for anesthesia.


We take all anesthetic cases very seriously. At Indian Creek Pet Hospital, we utilize the safest, multi-modal approach individually created for each dog or cat. It includes injectable medications for sedation and pain management and gas anesthetic agents. The combination of pre-anesthetic assessment of your pet (including blood work), use of modern anesthetic agents, and the latest anesthetic monitoring equipment means that anesthesia is generally considered a very low risk for your pet.

When we place your dog or cat safely under general anesthesia, a breathing tube is inserted into the trachea (windpipe) to administer oxygen mixed with the anesthetic gas. As with people, an intravenous catheter is placed into your pet’s leg to infuse it with fluids during the procedure. Once the procedure is completed and the anesthetic is turned off, oxygen will continue to be delivered to your pet until your pet wakes up and the tube is removed.


We believe in maximizing your pet’s comfort before, during, and after your pet’s procedure. The pain management we use depends on the type of pet. For many pets, we use a multi-modal approach to pain management, meaning we layer small amounts of different drugs to minimize any pain your pet might feel during or after the procedure. We administer lower doses of each individual drug so that your pet will experience fewer adverse side effects, more complete pain relief, and faster post-operative recovery.

Please call us if you have any questions regarding the surgical procedures we offer or if you have any questions about our surgical protocols.
