At Shadowridge Veterinary Hospital, we dedicate ourselves to providing the safest anesthesia possible for every pet. We use state of the art equipment and the safest protocols available to ensure
patient safety. All clients are concerned about the risks of anesthesia. And while there can be no guarantees whenever a pet is anesthetized, we promise to do everything possible to minimize the risks associated with anesthesia. We are very proud of our track record and are more than willing to discuss the anesthesia experience with you in detail for your particular pet and help alleviate any dears you may have.
There is an old saying in veterinary medicine, "there are no safe anesthetics, just safe anesthesiologists." Any drug or anesthetic given in the wrong dose or to the wrong pet can have bad consequences. We pride ourselves in tailoring every anesthetic event to the medical needs of each pet.
How are we different than other veterinary hospitals?
We are proud to be one of only a few hospitals in North San Diego County to use an End Tidal CO2 monitor on all our anesthetic cases. This monitor provides the most accurate asessment of a patient's ventilation during anesthesia and is the best early warning system for knowing if a patient is gettng too deep under anesthesia.
We understand that your biggest fear about surgical or dental procedures is the fear of the anesthesia. Believe us, that is our biggest fear as well. We do not minimize it or act cavalier about it. We only perform a small number of procedures each day so that every patient gets the time adn attention they deserve. If you are looking to cut corners and save costs on anesthesia, then you need to take your pet to another hospital. If you are looking to provide your pet with the safest anesthesia possible in today's world, then you have found the right place.
