Anaesthesia and pain management

Anaesthesia is more than a mere anaesthetic injection. And pain is a state that we must fight, by all possible means, in modern veterinary medicine.

We realise how stressful a visit to the veterinarian can be for your animal and sometimes also for you. New surroundings, disease, pain, other animals, unknown people and unwanted touch can be highly discomforting to your pet. Sedation and general anaesthesia will remove or at least significantly reduce fear and stress in your animal, so we can focus on our diagnostic procedures to achieve the most accurate results for further treatment planning.

We understand your worries regarding sedation and anaesthesia, but with careful planning, adjusting the anaesthesia protocol to each animal and continuous monitoring of the animal by experienced clinicians working with modern equipment, the risk of anaesthesia-related complications is minimal. To properly prepare your animal for anaesthesia, thorough history-taking and clinical exam are of utmost importance, when we also ensure that any additional diagnostic tests are performed, as clinically indicated. Age and underlying disease(s) are not contraindications for anaesthesia, but we need to have all the necessary data about your pet before starting with anaesthesia to make it as safe as possible.

Given all the diagnostic and treatment procedures requiring anaesthesia at Animal Hospital Postojna, we strive to provide the highest standards of care in anaesthesia and pain management. Animals at our hospital will routinely undergo inhalational anaesthesia, computer-guided total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA/TCI) and loco-regional anaesthesia (peripheral nerve blocks, epidural anaesthesia, spinal anaesthesia). Using modern anaesthesia and monitoring equipment, we anaesthetise patients of all sizes and ages.

If you have any questions regarding anaesthesia for your animal, please, do not hesitate to talk to one of our anaesthetists.
