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.

Out of all my wonderful traits I would have to say that I just love everybody! If you pretend to shoot me, I'll fall down,  roll on my back and be real still. "They think I'm dead, but I'm really not". I love all my kids. I had 7 this year. I hope I have 8 next year. I have to share the house with another female named Jenny. She's not very nice to me, but I love her anyway. I also have a wonderful "stud buddy" named Jackson. We we are outside, he protects me.. Life is Good!
