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.

We got this dog from a rescue organization in 2001. She had been chained to a couch in this guys apartment and left to starve to death. She was nursed back to health after being rescued from death row by TAGS.


We had just lost our dog Shadow and decided to look for an older dog that needed a home instead of a puppy...it was the best thing we ever did.She brought joy to us...for 6 years we loved each other ...words can not express how I feel over the loss of my girl Dakota. She got lymphoma and we had to ease her suffering for her....now we suffer and cry. It seems like such a short time that we had her to love...a short time that will never ever be forgotten...rest in peace my girl...I love you forever.
