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.

Hi my name is Dakota and I'm 5 years old. 
My Mom always tells me I'm too cute for this world, she's gonna give me a big head to go with these big ears
My Dad tells me I'm an Adult Puppy and need to act accordingly (Yeah Right!)!!!
I have an older sister Fluff Duff (she is a cat) and I like to chase her all over the place.  She doesn't like it though, she hisses and swats at me, but I still do it
I also have a little brother..Riley, he pretty much looks just like me except he doesn't have the big ears that stand up like I do.  He can be a pain as he's still acts like a puppy (he's two years old now), but I guess I love him.  
We just recently had to say goodbye to Uncle Shep, he has gone to doggy heaven.  My whole family is gonna miss him.  R.I.P. Sheppy Boy!!! 
A favourite passtime for me is chasing my own tail.  I go around so fast I get dizzy.  Darn tail is hard to catch, but I get it once in a while. 
I have many playmates in the family, my biological brother Ace, and cousins Razor, Sammi, Bailey, Piper, Molson, King and Cujo.  I haven't seen any of them much lately though which makes me kinda sad.   I hope I get to sniff them all real soon!!
I just love the water and in the summertime my pool comes out.  I have a blast splashing around in it and dunking my head under the water to get some of my many toys (that I now have to share with my little brother).  In winter I just love the SNOW, I love making Doggy Angels (as my mother calls them)!!!!
Can you tell that I'm "SPOILED ROTTEN AND LOVIN' IT??!!!"
