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.

Likes:
Suntanning. I should be living in Mexico!
Dislikes: Anyone attempting to touch
my toes. I will run and hide at the
site of nail clippers.
Most embarrassing moments: While going
for a boat ride with my owners I
noticed something moving at the back. I kept barking to tell them that

there was something there, but they kept laughing at me telling me it
was
just the boat motor. How was I to know!
Favourite Toy: I love taking any toy
that my sister Dollar
has and chew a
little hole in it to pull all the stuffing out.

My
best friend is Dollar
