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.

"Simonnn.." Grampy would say in his highest pitched voice.
The ultrasonic sound of Luke crying could be heard be other dogs kilometres away. His ambitous nose and poor eyesight searching for the little parakeet known as Simon.
It was simply that easy to tease Luke. But with his vocabluary reaching well over 80 words and his intelligence Luke was just as capable of teasing us. Stealing our slippers off our feet when we weren't paying attention and then bringing them back with the request of a reward. Or his triumphant return from the back fields covered in mud hours after we let him out to "go pee". Luke had a mind of his own, and a passion for the people he loved.
Despite his best efforts to protect us from the crows and neighbors for the rest of eternity, the little dog now stands beside us lovingly, in our minds.
