Why IV fluids during surgery or anesthesia?


When pets are sedated they experience a decreased blood pressure from the sedation. IV Catheter & Fluids during the anesthetic episode are recommended to reduce this risk. In addition, this extra measure allows us to administer life saving drugs in case of an emergency. Although not all hospitals offer this service, we feel strongly that this procedure has helped us run a very successful surgery program. All Schools of Veterinary Medicine and all prominent specialists recommend that all pets have an IV catheter placed before anesthesia and they receive IV Fluids during the surgery. This procedure is especially recommended for pets over 7 years of age.
