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.

I love to play outside and swim.  My Mom and Dad have a pool and I learned how to climb out the ladder so that I don't rip the liner.  I could swim all day if they'd let me.  I love to play ball, but I'm not good at giving the ball back.  I love to lay anywhere as long as I'm touching my Mom, Dad or my sister, Rain.  My most embarrassing moment was when I went onto the ice for the first time this year and flopped on my belly.  My most cherished moment is when my Mom and Dad brought me home to meet my sister and live in a new house.
