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 guys,
I'm Buddy, and I'm from the great state of Texas. Yippee! They say everything is big in Texas... well, I certainly measure up (he-he). I'm really big for a Golden, Mommy said, but I've been huge from birth. Awesome paws, I assure you. Cute too. My sidekick is a Boxer and let me tell you, I can wipe him out if I put my mind to it. That little pest! Mommy said I'm a very good boy because I take care not to hurt the pest but boy oh boy do I sometimes feel like it.
Anyway, I love to lie around the house and I LOVE my ball. There is nothing better than playing ball....or carrying Mommy's bra around when she isn't looking. After all, I'm a retriever, right? When Mommy is outside I have to be near her, to protect her of course, but when she goes in so do I. It's like we're connected at the hip and Mom loves it. I even try to go to the bathroom with her but she always closes the door in my face. That is so rude!!!!
My life is great but I have one pet peeve. The little pest (you guessed it, the Boxer) eats out of MY bowl first even though he has his own foodbowl. The nerve of that runt. Oh well.....Mommy makes up for it by giving me an extra spoon of yogurt...yum yum.  Oh, Mommy said I'm really really really REALLY cute and to vote for me. Thanks a gazillion.
