Local Anesthesia

Local anesthetics result in a loss of feeling in the area where the minor surgery or procedure is being performed, both during the procedure as well as for a period of time afterwards. Local anesthesia can also be part of the analgesic protocol following certain surgeries to provide added pain relief to the surgical site upon recovery from general anesthesia.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about your pet receiving local anesthesia or about the procedure for which your pet is scheduled.
