Veterinary Anesthesia


IndyVet is proud to be one of only a few hospitals in the State of Indiana to have a team of Registered Veterinary Technicians that are specifically trained in anesthesia and pain management. Our highly competent anesthesia team administers and monitors anesthesia tailored to each patient's needs and procedure.

When your pet arrives at IndyVet for their procedure, a pre-anesthetic evaluation is performed by their specialty team and an individualized plan is formulated utilizing the safest medications. Your pet's temperament, breed and medical history are taken into consideration to create a customized anesthetic plan to ensure that your pet is pain and stress free throughout their procedure and recovery.

One of IndyVet's anesthesia team members will monitor your pet's anesthesia using advanced monitoring equipment throughout the duration of their procedure and anesthetic recovery. Working together with other IndyVet specialty teams, and as a partner to referring veterinarians, our goal is to ensure the best anesthesia experience for every patient so that your pet can return home to your family as soon as possible.
