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.

My Wife and I adopeted Kyo while we were in japan. he was the cutest kitten you ever saw and was so hyper. as he got older he would talk to you he loved people and loved to tell people about his day. Kyo saw me as "daddy" and would always come when i called him or when he see me walking in from work. He was so fun watch and to have. He was run over in our apartment parking lot and found the next day
Kyo mom and dad still love you
