When Pets First Animal Hospital performs small or simple surgeries, we often use local anesthesia. This will help your pet feel less pain during the procedure. One type of medical procedure that we use a local for is a biopsy. This allows our veterinarian to numb the area taking away any pain that your pet may feel. Sometimes we use a sedative combined with local anesthesia to help your pet relax more. This will not harm your animal in any way. Our vets will determine if local anesthesia is better because general anesthesia isn’t always necessary.
