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.

Maggie was born in Tajikistan, Asia. When her mom Natasha met KC it was love for Maggie too. At seven Maggie moved to Victoria, BC. An untiring detective, she also liked to play with other animals but squirrels never understood. She usually ignored birds but sometimes would run into a flock of gulls for the heck of it. She would stand on her hind legs to see better or to give a hug. Maggie never barked unless she heard another dog crying, or thunder. She loved people, only ever growled at two, and will be missed by all.
