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.

Keegan was a marvelous unique dog. He was very intelligent, a great ball player, curious, and entertaining. As much as he was charming, Keegan could be stubborn and obstinate. He was not affectionate, but always wanted to be near me. He followed me all over the house and anywhere outside. He loved to take walks and greeting other dogs on the way. Keegan was a great traveler. He could adapt to any situation. We got Keegan when he was three months old. He instinctively was housetrained. We never had to train him at all. He slept all night. Once the first rain came, however, he was confused and walked into my bedroom and promptly lifted his leg on my bed. I miss Keegan immensely. He was my only companion and made me feel good every time I arrived home. I love you, Keegan!
