Earlier this month, Banfield Pet Hospital introduced the newest edition of its anesthetic and pain management guidelines and
protocols: Anesthesia and Analgesia for the Veterinary Practitioner: Canine and Feline.
This edition is a continuation of 15 years of work, during which time Banfield has made its Anesthesia for the Pet Practitioner publication available online to all veterinary professionals.
“At Banfield Pet Hospital, we are passionate about and feel a responsibility to share our insights and resources with the broader veterinary profession to help promote quality-care practices and build sustainable outcomes for pets,” said Karen Faunt, DVM, MS, DACVIM, Vice President of Veterinary Quality and Operations, Banfield Pet Hospital. “Providing high-quality medicine is at the heart of what we aim to do for every pet that walks through our doors, and Banfield’s new anesthesia program was thoughtfully designed to support not only our hospitals but also thousands of other veterinary teams in delivering on that goal.”
This latest iteration will arm veterinary professionals with the tools needed to deliver quality anesthesia to pets. Resources include a Medical Quality Standards program, job aids, an individualized anesthesia dosage calculator, and more.
