Anesthesia and Patient Monitoring

Grafton Animal Hospital utilizes a variety of the most current anesthetic and pain management protocols that ensures the safety of the procedure with minimum discomfort and side effects. To further ensure safety, we employ monitoring devices such as heart monitors, respiratory monitors, blood pressure and pulse oximeters, so that if a problem should develop, it will be detected and corrected long before it is serious. In addition to the state-of-the-art machines, a veterinarian or technician is always with the patient from the beginning to end of the anesthetic procedure.
