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.

Princess was a loyal and fun loving dog, she would play like a puppy, but protect like a soldier. She hated cats, mailmen, delivery pesonel, and oil truck drivers. She only barked when prompted, or to warn of strangers. She was kind, loving, and loved to be scratched, chase balls, go for rides in any vehicle, and any kind of food. She holds the record for most craps in one walk, a record that may never be broken. She will be sorely missed.
