Anesthetic & Patient Monitoring
In addition to having a veterinary assistant present to monitor the patient during surgery, our surgeries are performed with monitoring equipment that records the pet’s vital signs, such as: ECG, pulse, blood pressure, temperature, and respiration rates.
Our veterinarians perform all surgeries with both the use of a veterinary assistant and anesthetic monitoring equipment to monitor the patient throughout the surgical procedure. Our monitoring equipment uses both visual and auditory signals to alert the veterinarian of any potential problems. The various anesthetic monitoring that we offer includes continuous heart monitoring through the use of an esophageal stethoscope, continual ECG, heart rate, extrinsic blood pressure, respiration, and body temperature.
In addition, Butler Veterinary Clinic offers patient monitoring for those patients that are critically ill or for those who wish to have a complete work-up done. This includes monitoring both the heart and lungs through the use of our advanced patient monitoring systems for both large and small animal. We are able to perform EKG and cardiovascular evaluations, respiratory monitoring, and temperature control on cattle, horses, cats and dogs.
