Pet Tip

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.

MiMi was psychotic. He bit everything that came near him, including his own paws.  He liked to climb to the roof of him cage, then fling himself off of it. As the runt of the litter, I believe MiMi had some issues.  He only lived 2 months, and after that long MiMi committed suicide.  He stopped eating and drinking.  One day I woke up and tried to give him a treat.. but he had died in the night.

I'll never forget that crazy little guy.

Rest in peace.
