Not sure if anyone has been affected taking their pet to the vets, but there's a national shortage of one of the veterinary anaesthetic gases at the moment due to a manufacturing problem preventing its manufacture. It's likely to last through until March.
There are alternatives, but each anaesthetic installation will be locked into one type or another - the gases have different characteristics and can't be swapped about.
Short ops are fine with IV anaesthetics but it is not ideal!
