Dogs Cats and Anesthesia – Pet tip 239

Most cats and dogs undergo some type of surgery that requires anesthesia during their lifetimes even if it is only the surgery done for spaying and neutering. Other common procedures that require anesthesia include dental cleaning or dental surgery as well as repairing broken bones. Whenever surgery is done on a pet the topic of anesthesia arises. For the purposes of this article we will be talking about general anesthesia where pets are completely unconscious. We’ve all heard about the potential risks and possible complications regarding anesthesia in our own lives, and so it makes good sense to wonder about anesthetic complications when it comes to our pets as well.

Luckily, veterinary medicine has made huge strides in reducing anesthetic complications. So long as the pet is properly monitored during the actual surgery and the pet has been carefully prescreened for possible problems, anesthesia on pets is quite safe and problems are few.

Soda is a fun loving dog with "Tons" of energy. He loves playing fetch, but never gives back the ball! He enjoys pulling our kids in the homemade wagon and even that doesn't slow him down!  Harley and Davidson, our cats , love taunting him until he chases them all over the house.  We recently discovered that Soda loves sleeping in tents.  He still thinks he's a pup though, while playing catch the other day he ran into the fence and took out 5 boards!!!
