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.

Hi, My name is Nelson, named after the great Horatio Nelson, who was in my owners family. Now let me talk about myself: Likes: I like to sleep, eat, poop in the neighbours yard, and get wet in the ocean. Dislikes: I dislike it when my owner gets mad at me, carrots, staying outside beacause my owner had my hair shaved off, being stepped on by grandpa. Pet Peeves: Crows, not being fed on time, and having to get out of bed. Favourite Lounging Spot: Wherever my owner is. Most Embarrassing Moment: Can you say Ocean Enima? Cherished Moment: Being rescued from the SPCA.  Well, goodbye for now! Love, From: Nelson
