A crucial part of making any anesthetic safe is adequate and continuous monitoring. At Sault Ste. Marie Animal Clinic, your pet is continuously monitored throughout the anesthetic by the veterinarian and technician. A combination of hands on techniques such as assessing mucous membranes and reflexes is combined with sophisticated devices that constantly monitor vital signs such as heart rate, breathing, oxygen levels, carbon dioxide levels and blood pressure. This allows us to identify and address any issue quickly and efficiently.
