Anaesthesia at Eye Vet

 

Louise Harvey is our dedicated on site anaesthetist and is responsible for the provision of anaesthesia of the patients admitted to Eye-Vet. She is assisted by the nursing team in ensuring your pet is comfortable before, during and after their procedure.

You pet may have a medical condition which makes him/her at an increased risk during sedation or anaesthesia. We may therefore recomend you have a consultation with Louise before any such procedures are performed.

Anaesthesia and sedation at Eye Vet

As part of your pet’s examination at Eye Vet they may require sedation or an anaesthetic for some of their treatment. To ensure that this part of their treatment is as safe as possible we advise the following:

  • Please do not feed your pet after midnight the previous evening unless they are less than 2 months old or are a small ‘furry’ (e.g Rabbit). Please contact the clinic for further advice in these situations.
  • Please ensure your pet has access to water until you leave home on the morning of your appointment.
  • If your pet is diabetic please contact the clinic for advice regarding feeding and insulin administration on the morning of your appointment.
  • Please ensure you inform us of all medications your pet is currently taking
