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.

Geez, I hate when they take my picture!  I'm too FAT!
Hi, I'm "CHIP-A-DOG"
That is what they call me when they want me to come to them.  I don't mind it.  It's funny.  I am 8 years old and very heavy for my breed of dog.  But, I am loved just the same.  I love to run around outside and bark alot but when I am told to stop I normally do what I am told.  I also suffer from  Epilepsy,     so I have to take medicine for the rest of my life.  My best friend is "Belle" she is a pomeranian dog.   I am bigger then her.  She is my Pal, but she gets on my nerves from time to time.  I am set in my ways.  I normally don't like other dogs but, we have a little jack russell named Sadie that I tolerate if I have too...she is really small but very pushy!  I love it when Dad comes home because I will go and greet him with a growl and maybe a burp or two.  I found a great family and would not trade with any other dog in the world!   My most embarrassing moment was when I was younger, I wanted to chase my co-owner Joshua on a bicycle and he was riding down a hill and I jumped from an 8 foot deck and scrapped my chin up and hurt myself.  I never did that Again.  NO!!!   Not me, I know better now. 
Sincerely,  "CHIP-A-DOG"  the Sheltie!
