Anesthesia is a necessity in veterinary medicine. It minimizes pain and emotional distress for our pets while allowing doctors to perform procedures ranging from dental procedures to fracture repairs. In this special episode, Dr. Buzby is joined by Dr. Ralph Harvey, veteran professor in the Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in Knoxville, Tennessee, to discuss his wisdom and experience with anesthesia for dogs.
Dr. Harvey is board certified by the American College of Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia, and is a member of the Fear-Free Executive Council. He focuses his practice and teaching on pain management and anesthesia. If you’ve ever wondered if anesthesia was safe for your dog, this is an episode you won’t want to miss.
