Veterinary Anesthesia

IndyVet is proud to be one of only a few hospitals in the State of Indiana to have a team of Registered Veterinary Technicians that are specifically trained in anesthesia and pain management. Our highly competent team administers and monitors anesthesia tailored to each patient’s needs and procedure.

When a pet arrives at IndyVet for procedure requiring anesthesia, a pre-evaluation is performed, and an individualized plan is formulated utilizing the safest medications specifically tailored for the procedure being performed.  At IndyVet, each pet’s temperament, breed, and medical history are taken into consideration to create a customized anesthetic plan to ensure that the patient is pain and stress free throughout its procedure and recovery.

One of IndyVet’s team members monitors each pet’s anesthesia using advanced monitoring equipment throughout the duration of its procedure and anesthetic recovery. Working together with other IndyVet specialty teams, and as a partner to referring veterinarians, our goal is to ensure the best anesthesia experience for every patient so that each pet returns home to its family as soon as possible.
