All about Monty
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, I'm Monty, the American Pit Bull Terrier. On walks, I get many stares, and some people even back away from me. I think that it's unfair for pit bulls to be classified as dangerous to many people. I really hope that everyone can give us a chance, and see that we can be as sweet as golden retrievers.
I arrived to my family September 9th, 2003, from the Maple Ridge SPCA. I was a tiny little puppy- only 3 months old, and weighing 19 pounds! I have grown a lot now, but most of my weight comes from my big bones. I love to play, and run in the yard. I am very friendly to people and other dogs. Sometimes, cats startle me, but usually, I leave them alone. On walks, I pick up many things. I recently picked up a lost cell phone on the street, which my owner returned. I have many doggy friends, and I enjoy playing with them. I have been bitten by a Shetland Sheepdog, and it really scared me. I was only 4 months old. I don't know what I did wrong, I don't want it to happen again. I loved my Kong, but I lost it- I think it rolled down the driveway one day....
When my family and I moved about 2 months ago, I was so scared! On moving day, I hid behind a tree and watched stranger move things in and out of the new house. I was upset : ( After about a day or two, I realized that this new home had a bigger yard than the old one! I romped around and found many toys buried in the yard. Boy was I happy!
