2013 AAHA/AAFP Fluid Therapy Guidelines for Dogs and Cats references

Fluids and anesthesia

One of the most common uses of fluid therapy is for patient support during the perianesthetic period. Decisions regarding whether to provide fluids during anesthesia and the type and volume used depend on many factors.

Changes in fluid volume

The physical exam will help determine if the patient has whole body fluid loss (e.g., dehydration in patients with renal disease), vascular space fluid loss (e.g., hypovolemia due to blood loss), or hypervolemia (e.g., heart disease, iatrogenic fluid overload)
