Anesthesia Services

The VTH Anesthesia Service provides the following services:

  • Multi-species general anesthesia, pain management, and local anesthetic services for patients in the Small Animal and Large Animal Hospitals of the VTH.
  • Anesthetic services for all surgeries performed in the hospitals as well as for animals undergoing diagnostic procedures requiring general anesthesia.
  • Consultation for other sub-specialties within the hospitals seeking solutions to sedation and pain management problems.

All of our patients undergo a careful physiological assessment prior to being pre-medicated and anesthetized. Extensive monitoring with state-of-the-art equipment, analgesia, and intra-operative fluid administration are conducted throughout the procedure and until the patient has fully recovered consciousness.
