Anaesthesia is an essential aspect of veterinary medicine, especially when it comes to surgical interventions and other procedures. At Allambie Vet, we understand that the thought of your pet undergoing surgery can be stressful and anxiety-inducing. However, we want to assure you that we prioritize the well-being of your pet during the entire anaesthetic process, giving you peace of mind that they are in safe hands.

We take pride in staying up-to-date with the latest advances in veterinary medicine and surgery. Our dedicated team is fully committed to ensuring the safe and pain-free treatment of your pets under anaesthetic. To achieve this, we utilize state-of-the-art diagnostics, high-quality anaesthetic equipment, and comprehensive monitoring systems, all operated by experienced veterinarians and highly trained Registered Veterinary Nurses.

One of our remarkable assets is the brand new Mindray Anaesthetic Machine with an inbuilt Ventilator. This innovative equipment is particularly beneficial for vulnerable patients, such as those with respiratory diseases, large abdominal masses, GDV, elderly, or compromised patients who may be extra sensitive to anaesthetics. The option of ventilation in certain emergencies further enhances our capabilities in providing optimal care.

At Allambie Vet, we take anaesthesia care seriously, and our commitment is evident in the presence of advanced medical equipment, including multi-parameter monitors that continuously measure critical health parameters. Additionally, our staff undergo regular continuing education and training with Specialists in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Pain Management.

During anaesthetics, we ensure the availability of multiple veterinarians to handle any complexities or emergencies that may arise. This allows the primary veterinarian to focus entirely on the procedure at hand while a dedicated anesthetist oversees the anaesthetic process and intervenes if necessary.

How safe is anaesthesia for small pets?

All anaesthesia carries some risk, however we endeavour to provide the safest environment possible for your pet undergoing anaesthesia. Pre-anaesthetic blood testing and thorough physical examination are steps we recommend prior to any anaesthetic procedure. During the anaesthetic we use state of the art monitoring equipment to carefully track your pet’s vital parameters to ensure any abnormalities, if they occur, are picked up early. Following anaesthesia, your pet is monitored closely during the recovery period and provided any pain relief or medication they require. All of these steps are taken very seriously so that your loved one can get home safely.

Can you guarantee my pet won’t feel anything while under anaesthesia?

All pets undergoing anaesthesia at Allambie Vet are provided with pain relief (analgesia) as part of a "pre-medication" to keep your pet comfortable before and during anaesthesia, and to minimise the anaesthetic drugs required on the day. The type and level of pain relief provided may be increased depending on the patient and the procedure. All patients are provided ongoing pain relief after the procedure and at home until they are considered comfortable.
