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.

We found our Muffy at the SPCA 14 years ago. She captured our heart and never let go.  She always had a stuffed toy in her mouth and constantly wagged her tail.  She especially loved Barney, her purple dinosaur.  After becoming ill in April, 2005, she fought to stay with us for the next 9 months.  Although her mind was still alert, her little body just wore out.

Our darling Muffy, you were the light of our life, and we miss you so.  Although we try to find comfort in knowing you are now healthy, happy, and running free, there is an empty place in our home and hearts that will never be filled.  May you rest in peace until we meet again.  With all our love - Mommy and Daddy
