Did you know anesthesia causes low body temperatures not only in people but also in pets? With more than 30 surgeries typically performed in our accredited veterinary hospital each day, we have a flurry of cats and dogs and bunnies and more coming out of anesthesia who need help making sure their body temperatures don’t dip too low. That’s why our veterinary team places our recovering critters under a special piece of equipment called a Bair Hugger, which regulates and propels warm air into a big pillow. This sustained heat source creates a safe and cozy environment for animals to recuperate. Whether following a spay or neuter surgery, or even a leg amputation, providing this warm “hug” makes for a speedy recovery.
