Pet Tip

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.

Max was a sweet, playful, affectionate dog that we had for six weeks. He loved playing with our other dog Soda and our cats Harley and Davidson, and the kids. We got Max when he was a year old, and enjoyed every minute with him. Tragically one day, he bit our daughter, she required stitches.  Unsure why, thinking he may have gotten hurt and was very loving after, (our daughter wanted him to stay), we gave him a second chance, the next morning he nipped at our son and the decision was made to put him to sleep. We miss him.
