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.

My name is Stan, and although I'm still pretty young I act like an ornary old man.  I love my mom and sometimes like my dad.  My favourite things to do are sleep, chase animals and fight with my dad.  I also like to swim at the doggy beach near my house on the hot summer days.  I have many toys and favour them all, but hate when someone else tries to play with them.  I'm far too cool to do anything embarrassing, although I have had to be pulled out of the river a couple of times before I went through the rapids.  Sometimes I just watch my friends run around like idiots, other times when I'm feeling frisky I'll join in.  My most favourite times are going to grandma's house.  I get to chase the kitty, the cows and now a pot bellied pig.  It's the best time I could ever have and grandma ans grandpa spoil me to death!!!!  What a life I lead, mom says she wishes she could be me!
