All about Suzie
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.

Suzie came from the Owen Sound Animal Shelter
I have been the volunteer webmaster with the Owen Sound Animal Shelter (519) 372-1123 or email in Owen Sound for over a year. During that time, I have updated and enhanced the original web site and helped to get the word out about what a great Shelter Renee and Todd run.
I also do volunteer work on another web site for the Society for Animals in Distress - SAD who help animals in Elliot Lake, ON P5A 2T1 (705) 461-3197 or email
February of this year, I went to the Shelter to find out about updates for the web site and I was asked by one of the volunteers to walk Suzie. When I returned from our walk, I said I wanted to adopt her. She is such a nice dog and a great friend. She also gets along very well with our cat.
Suzie accompanies me to work at Wiggins Accounting and Financial Services every day. She has become a very good companion at break time.
I never would have thought to adopt an older dog. I had adopted a puppy from a Shelter a long time ago, but now that I have Suzie, I would adopt another older dog in a flash.
