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.

Chica - my little girl - you were my best friend and I am so lost without you. We have been there through everything with each other and now you are gone I dont know what tomorrow will bring. You have been my strength, my inspiration, my life. My only hope is that you truly knew just how much I loved you. You were everything to me.

Saying good bye to you was the hardest thing that I have ever had to do. My only consulation is that now you will always be with me - forever. In my dreams, in my thoughts, in my prayers, and in my heart. You will never be forgotten.

Sleep well my Princess, for now you really are an angel. I will love and miss you always.
