All about Duke
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.

Duke though we only knew him for about 3 weeks had latched on to our hearts and never let go, as he has been missing now for 3 weeks now and no one has called with info, we've decided he's gone. It rained and so the posters we put out for him got rained out and though this is immensely difficult to do we've given up.We have contacted the shelters SPCAS and humane societies in every region town and city for about 11 mile each direction with no luck.I'm really sorry Duke if you ever happen to see this, I tried so hard to find you, we waited so long For you to come home to us. Dukey, we missed you too much to continue the search Dukey, I'm sorry!
Duke was a sweetheart and all our animals will miss him. Not to mention us, we'll miss ya Duke I hope you are happy and being treated well wherever you are! Happy Trails!
