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.

hello! I am Ripley. My mom rescued me, I was an unwanted puppy at one time, if you can believe it! I am a mamma's boy, although I am quite independent and don't cuddle a lot. I have a slightly older sister, Jessie. She is a 1 year old yellow lab and she is lots of fun to play with and tussle. I also love it when she kisses me and licks me. Jessie is a very affectionate sister, LOL. My papa named me Ripley, because I am a believe it or not puppy. My papa cannot believe that mom bought another puppy, when my older sister was only 7 months old at the time. Barely potty trained!! LOL. I love the dog park in our town and I love it when mommy and daddy take us to the lake across the street to swim and retrieve, or on bike rides near the lake...
