How does anaesthesia work?

Anaesthesia is a vital component of veterinary procedures to ensure the safety and comfort of pets. It involves the administration of medications to induce a temporary loss of sensation or consciousness. Anaesthesia works by interrupting the transmission of nerve signals to the brain, effectively blocking pain and inducing a state of unconsciousness.

Skilled anaesthetists at London Vet Specialists follow international guidelines and continuously improve anaesthesia techniques to provide the highest standard of care. They conduct thorough pre-aesthetic evaluations, addressing any concerns or questions, and prioritise the well-being of pets throughout the procedure.

What analgesia (pain-relief) is safe for dogs and cats?

Finding safe and effective analgesia options for dogs and cats is crucial to manage their pain during medical procedures or after surgery. London Vet Specialists offers a range of analgesic medications tailored to the specific needs of each pet.

These medications effectively alleviate pain and provide comfort without compromising their safety. Skilled anaesthetists at London Vet Specialists are well-versed in the latest analgesia techniques and continuously update their knowledge to ensure the well-being of pets. They take a compassionate and personalised approach, addressing any concerns or questions pet owners may have.

Analgesia (pain-relief) options for your pet

At London Vet Specialists, a variety of analgesia options are available to ensure your pet's comfort during medical procedures. These options include medications such as opioids, local anaesthetics, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

The skilled anaesthetists at London Vet Specialists carefully evaluate each pet's needs and tailor the analgesia plan accordingly. They continuously improve their techniques and stay up to date with the latest advancements in analgesia to provide the highest standard of care. Rest assured that your pet's well-being is the top priority at London Vet Specialists.

Side effects of anaesthesia

While anaesthesia is generally safe for pets, it is important to be aware of potential side effects. Some common side effects include temporary drowsiness, disorientation, and mild nausea. In rare cases, more serious side effects such as allergic reactions or complications related to underlying health conditions may occur. However, the skilled anaesthetists at London Vet Specialists prioritise the safety and well-being of pets and take comprehensive measures to minimise the risk of side effects. They conduct thorough pre-anaesthetic evaluations and closely monitor pets during and after the procedure to ensure a smooth recovery.
