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.

Woofin  was our first dog. We got her as a puppy the 2nd week we got home from our honeymoon. She was a rascal but you couldn't help but love her. We were unable to have a child for the first 71/2 years of our marriage so she was our baby. She loved to go for walks and was a very good dog. Not too good around strangers but once she got to know you she loved you. When our son was born , she slept under his crib and guarded him all day like he was her pup. She had been spayed when she was 6 months old so she never had pups herself. She had a seizure when she was 16 years old and never was the same after that. Walking became painful and she lost control of her bowels. We couldn't stand to see her in pain so my husband and I took her to the vet to be put down. I held her in my arms until she had passed away. She was a wonderful dog .
