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.

Pepino was found on the streets of the inner city of Los Angeles by a police officer. He was bleeding, starving, had lost his coat and could barely walk. He as 17 mos old.
A trip to the Humane Society produced a recommendation that he be euthanized.....too far gone. Thankfully, this lady cop took him to a vet she knew, where he was bathed, fed and cared for.
She brought this little guy to a Rescue at  Petsmart where I was shopping. My  little pal, named Bri, adopted from a local dog pound, had  lost her life to an  illness that veterinarians could not  defeat a year earlier.
This left me with my constant travel pal, Sinja, a rescue dog from  a shelter.  Both  Sinja and Bri stayed with me after my divorce. 
I knew that Sinja needed a new a pal, we both missed Bri. One look at  Pepino and I knew he was meant to come home with me. The lady police officer told me she knew my dog skills would give this little guy the chance he needed.
And it has been a ride! Little Pepino came to me with only 2 teeth ( at 17mos of age), has skin conditions and assorted little health challenges.
But  with holistic food and supplements he has come a long way...and  Sinja has a buddy  that goes with her, and me everywhere !
