IV Fluid Therapy
IMPORTANCE OF IV FLUIDS DURING YOUR PET’S SURGERY
In case of emergency while your pet is under anesthetic, IV catheterization allows us to be able to quickly administer the necessary medications and drugs. For this reason, we require that all surgical patients have an IV catheter placed.

Anesthetic drugs lower your pet’s blood pressure dramatically. When IV fluids are run during your pet’s surgery, it will help keep the blood pressure elevated within normal levels.
For your pet’s safety, we require that your pet be restricted from food and water on the day of surgery. Running IV fluids will help keep your pet from becoming dehydrated during their procedure.
IV fluids help flush the anesthetic from your pet’s blood stream. This will allow your pet to wake up from surgery more quickly.
