Anesthesia and Hospitalization at HVS


We know having a pet undergo anesthesia can be a stressful experience, which is why we have a skilled anesthesia team solely dedicated to performing and monitoring anesthesia. With a consulting anesthesiologist and full-time Veterinary Technician Specialist (VTS) in Anesthesia & Analgesia on staff, we are committed to providing a seamless anesthesia experience for patients and clients. HVS is equipped with cutting-edge anesthetic equipment with additional safety features such as anesthetic ventilators and advanced monitoring capabilities. Patients’ anesthetic protocols will be tailored to their needs, with careful consideration of any pre-existing medical conditions, anxiety, and previous anesthetic events to ensure they are comfortable throughout their stay and recovery.


Following a surgical procedure at HVS, most pets will stay overnight for attentive nursing and post-op care so we can closely monitor and provide appropriate pain management before heading home. Our inpatient ward is complete with spacious enclosures, comfortable bedding, and oxygen if a pet requires that extra support. A dedicated inpatient team will care for patients after their procedure. Our overnight veterinarian and team provide this dedicated care to ensure a smooth and comfortable experience from intake to discharge.
