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.

I was left out in front of an apartment, behind a bus stop in the rain by my previous owner. I cried and cried for someone to rescue me from the cold but no one came, while I sat for hours in the rain in my own feces. Finally, this young girl saw me crying and carried me inside her home. She bathed me, dryed me, feed me, and let me fall asleep in her arms. Now I have a great home, and remind my owner about how much I appreciate and love her by greeting her with a wagging tail and a big lick on the face whenever she comes home to see me. I do cause trouble sometimes when I make accidents on the floor, tear up a bunch of newspapers, or attempt to bite holes in her shoes, but hey...I'm just a puppy and I don't mean any harm. I'm just happy to be alive and to have a good home. : )
