General anesthesia is a major part of our duties, especially in relation to surgeries. General anesthesia allows us to perform surgery or other procedures while having the pet feel no discomfort. General anesthesia involves administering certain drugs to calmly induce this “sleep” state and maintain the state via the anesthetic machine. The depth and duration of the anesthetic can be carefully controlled by this machine. When the surgery is over, your pet will be moved to recovery, where he/she will enjoy a warm and comfortable bed, in which they will gradually awaken over the course of the day.
