Only The Best

Advanced anesthesia with the experts.

Board-Certified Anesthesiologist

In addition to this high level of training, we also are proud to be able to offer consultations with a board-certified anesthesiologist for those patients who are at high risk The anesthesiologist will be prescheduled and on site as arranged on a case-by-case basis.

On the nursing side, our lead Registered Veterinary Technician, Ashley, has had 10 years of experience working alongside an anesthesiologist. She has excellent technical skills in placing IV catheters, monitoring patients, and managing their anesthesia so they remain under as light a plane of anesthesia as possible.

All Walks of Life

The NBVD team has worked on pets who are both very young (for example, an 8-week-old kitten) and very old (a patient who was a 21-year-old dog). We have anesthetized pets who have previously been in heart failure or kidney failure, and have safely seen them through healing to find they feel better than ever. We never consider your pet too old to be anesthetized, but we recognize that it is always a calculated risk. Sometimes the risk outweighs the benefits, and we elect not to proceed with anesthesia. But often we find that the benefits do outweigh the risks and that it is safe to proceed with a procedure that can bring them increased comfort, health, and happiness.
