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.

Hi there. I am a well pampered pure breed. My ancestors originate from China. In Chinese, they call my breed liondog. I am not vicious in any way. What I am good at though is loving everyone to the extreme. I am a very happy dog and I love the kids that live with me.
I was adopted by my current mommy 3 years ago. I love when she calls out the word "treats". Sometimes my Nana brings me pigs ears. I love to run around and act silly for everyone. Especially my playmate Jasmine.
A year and half ago , my mom brought home a new puppy. Her name is Jasmine. I did not like her much then. But boy, do I love her now! I love to chase her and our toy bunny around. After all that play , I like to curl up with my mom or Nana. My favourite is a fuzzy blanket.
My most embarrasing moment is when I was outside once marking my territory on everything and I accidently fell over lifting my leg.
