Anesthesia

The loss of feeling or sensation. A variety of medications can be used to induce a patient into a state that allows the performance of surgery or other procedures that would cause pain in an awake patient. This is different than sedation, where a patient is relaxed, but is still awake and can still feel pain. Our veterinarians use the safest anesthetics available and tailor the type of medication (anesthetic) used to suit each pet’s specific needs.

Arthritis

Inflammation of a joint, common source of pain/ discomfort in older pets.
