About the Author
Kayla King is a registered veterinary technician in anesthesia at the University of Georgia Veterinary Teaching Hospital. She graduated from Athens Technical College in 2013 and has been working in academia since, managing a wide variety of species. She received her VTS in anesthesia and analgesia in 2021 and finds anesthesia fascinating, as it is always a challenge to determine the optimal protocol for each patient. Anesthetizing critical patients is particularly mentally stimulating since it gives her the opportunity to test her knowledge and problem-solving skills. Kayla resides in Winterville, Georgia, with her husband, son, dog, cat, and chinchilla.
