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.

Sarah Lee was such a good oobleck.  She oozed happily, and beared all the hugs and squeezing we bestowed upon her.  She was well loved.


Then her lushious green coat began to turn blue.  I don't know why, but it did.  The whole family was devistated as she fell ill.  The local vet couldn't do anything because he didn't treat ooblecks.  Neither did our family doctor.  Of course, we didn't expect her too but we asked anyway.  The kids cried every night.


We were as desperate to try better hygiene, but that didn't even work.  One diagnostic specialist thought she had not eaten enough and died form an only water diet. He assured us that a stetady food supply would repair our beloved in no time.  THe kids believed it too.


Unfortuantely, Sarah Lee refused the food and died only a while later.  It makes us as a family realize just how precious a loved one is.  Our child wanted to hold onto the body, but we assured her it wasn't hygienic.  Then she said "hygiene didn't do a thing for Sarah Lee, so why should I care?"  The whole family was deeply wounded by the experience. 


We held the service the very day of her death.  We decided to give her a watery grave, because Sarah Lee loved water.  So much, in fact, that she forgot about food. 


Due to the traumatic experience of first hand death, the family member that cared the most (our baby girl) has refused to speak about any other ooblecks.  We are going to a breeder tonight to purchase another one so that our darling can once again be joyful.  We believe that the whole family will benefit from another bundle of joy entering our lives.


We, the Heinz family, will always remember our little Sarah Lee.  However, it is time to move on.  We will call our next oobleck Tre due to our son's recent obsession with greenday.
