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.

Am I itchy or just plain comfortable? Hmmm.

This is my dog Sampson. He is a purebred English pointer. He is going to be 8 months old on the 20th of February.
He was born on June 20th 2001.
We adopted Sampson when he was 4 months and 11 days old.
He is a good dog. He started to realize at a early age around 5 months that shoes were not to chew on.

Sampson is quite the character. The way I would describe Sampson's personality would be to say he thinks he is a human being due
to the fact he does everything that a human being would do.
He likes to eat when we eat at the same time as us. He loves to be held and rocked just like a little child wanting to be picked up by their parent.
He especially loves to be tucked under the blankets with my spouse and I and sleep with a pillow just like a human would do.

In reality he is a good dog or should I say kid!! Ha! Ha!

I would not change him for the world.
