Anesthesia/Surgery

Anesthesia Services

At Rau Animal Hospital, we care about your pet’s safety. We believe in treating each patient as an individual. Before any surgical procedure, our doctors give each patient a thorough physical exam, and review recent lab work. An anesthetic protocol is then created to fit your pet’s specific needs.

Your pet will be monitored by a certified veterinary technician and veterinarian at all times during the anesthetic process. From pre-operative care to recovery, your pet will be monitored by OR technicians with special training in anesthesia and pain management. From routine spays and neuters to more advanced anesthesia techniques for critical and cardiac cases, Rau uses state-of-the-art monitors such as ECG, Pulse Oximetry, Capnography, and Blood Pressure.

We believe in treating your pet’s pain very seriously. Studies have shown that pets that receive pain medication prior to and after a painful surgical event have a faster recovery time. We will send your pet home with a pain medication protocol tailored to your pet’s specific needs. From a routine neuter to an extensive dentistry, we will create a pain management regime to keep your pet comfortable during the recovery process.
