Safe anesthesia is the only anesthesia at Bassler Veterinary Hospital!  Our AAHA accreditation is proof that we follow only best practices and safest protocols with your pet's anesthesia.

When your cat or dog needs anesthesia, you can trust us to provide your pet with the best care.  Our modern anesthesia department utilizes state-of-the-art equipment to safely monitor your pet.  An anesthesia technician is assigned to each and every anesthetized patient, to constantly monitor patient vitals.  These vitals include heart rate, respiratory rate, cardiac function, blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation, exhaled carbon dioxide, body temperature, and more.  Safe anesthesia is the only anesthesia at Bassler Veterinary Hospital.

Your pet’s safety and comfort are our top concern.  In addition to cutting-edge anesthesia monitoring, patients receive an IV catheter with electrolyte fluids, and cozy warming devices.  This improves anesthetic safety and patient comfort.  Only the safest anesthetic drugs are used, with safe gas anesthesia and oxygen provided by sterile breathing tubes.  Breathing tubes are brand new for each patient and trimmed to fit your pet.  This protects the airways, and enhances oxygen delivery and waste gas removal.

Patients recovering from anesthesia are kept warm and cozy, and receive T.L.C. by a veterinary technician.

My family and I strongly recommend Dr. Heidi Bassler and her team at Bassler Veterinary Hospital. Above and beyond offering top-notch veterinary and medical skills, I truly felt we had an advocate for the health and well-being of our pet, and our family. Dr. Bassler personally goes the extra mile to care for animals, and comfort and educate their families. Whether for routine check-ups or emergency veterinary care, Bassler Veterinary Hospital is a regional treasure!

We visited Bassler Vet Hospital after our Pomeranian dislocated his hip on the ice. Dr. Bassler and her team had such a caring nature, attention to detail and overall was incredible. They are SO nice and they genuinely care about their patient's well-being. We had used a local Vet for our dog and two cats for a few years, but immediately switched over to Dr. Bassler after just one visit.

Bassler Veterinary Hospital is the best of the best. Word on the street is that if nobody can figure out what is wrong with your dog or cat, then you need to see Dr. Bassler. With this in mind, I brought my dog King to see Dr. Bassler when King was gravely ill and other vets were scratching their heads. Dr. Bassler took a detailed history, performed a thorough exam, and ran some special tests. And just as people said she would, Dr. Bassler diagnosed the problem and put King on the road to recovery. I am so grateful! Dr. Bassler is really friendly and also has a very nice staff. She also responds to my emails, which makes me feel valued and keeps me informed.
