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 Layka was a beautiful chow chow dog.  She had puppies 3 times, and she had 8 puppies each time.  We kept one from the first time.  His name is Yito and he is with my aunt right now.  He is a brown chow chow, just like his mother, but with other color. 

Layka loved meat.  My mother would give her a bowl of arroz con gandures and meat, and she'll eat the meat and the rice and leave all the ganures in the bowl.  I dont know how she used to do that but she did.  Same with beans.  My mother used to compare her to me, cause i dont eat beans either and i have to have meat in my meal. 

I remember for one hurricane in 1999, we had to leave the house cause it was dangerous to stay there, and we left layka with the owners of her parents for a couple of days until it was safe.  She escaped from there and she went to our old house and i dont know how did she got in, but she stayed the whole hurricane inside that old house.  When we came back, she was scared to death, and hungry (cause nobody knew where she was), when we saw her, she was hiding underneath the sofa, still shaking and she looked pretty bad.  Inmediatelly when she saw us she came out of the sofa and we gave her food and water and took her to the vet afterwards.

When we moved to NJ in 2001, she stayed with my sister, and then she had more puppies, and my sister kept a little black one named Magnum, which is still with my parents.  He is exactly like his mother, but black and white.  Sometime later she took her to the dog pound and last thing i heard when i went back to Puerto Rico is that she was dead. =(
