Desexing Soft Tissue Surgery Orthopaedic Surgery Emergency Treatment Intensive Care


No one likes the thought of their pet under going surgery but there are certain problems and routine procedures which require surgical intervention. There have been many recent advances in veterinary medicine and surgery. Diagnostics, anaesthesia, monitoring and surgical techniques have been developed to help ensure your pets recovery.

Anaesthesia in veterinary medicine is important and necessary to provide safe and pain-free treatment for pets. At Allambie Vet, we utilise high quality anaesthetic and monitoring equipment with an experienced veterinary team.

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.
