Anesthesiology Service

The members of Anesthesiology Service in the Companion Animal Hospital of Cornell University Hospital for Animals are dedicated to anesthetic care. Our team of anesthesiologists, residents and technicians provides sedation, general anesthesia, regional anesthesia and acute pain management to more than 2,000 patients requiring surgical or diagnostic procedures each year.

As veterinary medicine advances, increasingly complex procedures are available for diagnosing and treating serious medical conditions in animals. Our team provides advanced anesthetic techniques - including advanced monitoring of blood pressure, heart function and blood gases - to ensure the safety of our patients during these procedures. We treat many high risk patients and we provide anesthesia for emergency procedures.
