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.

This is Jake and Dakota ... Dakota is a female and Jake is a male ... Both rescued from the local pound and a great joy to be around.  We adopted Dakota after Jake's brother Java died due to complications from Epilepsy.
Dakota joins the ranks of my animal farm, which include Jake and three cats whose original names were Nikki, Zoro and Maggie ... however became, in my boyfriend's humorous mind, Porky, Piggy and Pissy ... long story, but the names have remained...
Tell me I don't do a lot of houswork with my hairy little clan!!!
