Anaesthesia & Analgesia
The CityU VMC Anaesthesia Service is run by board-certified veterinary anaesthesia specialists, who work closely with VMC’s veterinary and nursing teams to provide the highest quality anaesthesia and pain management. Our anaesthesia team provides perioperative care to all types of patients, from routine procedures to emergency surgeries and pets with severe co-existing diseases.
Our services include:
- A full pre-anaesthetic evaluation for each patient, including additional diagnostics when indicated
- An individual anaesthetic protocol for each pet, tailored specifically for the patient’s health status, diagnostic findings, and the procedure being performed
- Perioperative pain management, including nerve blocks, epidural or spinal anesthesia, and constant rate infusions where appropriate
- Chronic pain management, including pain consultations, novel treatments, and interventional pain management
The anaesthesia team works directly with your primary veterinarian, who will give you specific instructions to follow before your pet undergoes anaesthesia. The anaesthesia service may request additional diagnostic tests before anaesthesia to improve your pet’s safety and comfort. If you wish to discuss your pet’s anaesthesia in detail, you may book a consultation directly with one of our anaesthesiologists.
