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.

About Spunk

Spunk was a beautiful cat that u have ever imagined. My mom got her when i wasn't even born yet. But when i was born, Spunk lived for another 11 years until she died. It was very hard for us but especially for my mom. She had front claws but never used them against another human being unless someone was attacking her. Other than that, we travelled together to Newfoundland and all the way back driving. She would always stay by me and my mom and sleep with us too! Until one morning she started bumping into walls. My mom took her to the vet and realised that she was blind and had a tumour in her stomach. We had no other choice but to put her down because she was in so much pain. After Spunks deatn it wasn't the same. I luv you Spunk after all of 20 years, thank you for being the bestest friend you could be!
