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.

Physically ,and in stature our Bammer was petite, but in his mind he was a lion!  He was a little rescue dog we took into our home just a little over a year ago.  It was love at first sight!  He gave us so much more than we could ever give him.   He was definitely Dad's boy.  We will never know what he experienced in his life before he came to us, but from day one he was adored and doted with hugs and kisses.  He crossed the bridge today, there is no more sickness or pain.  I can imagine our little man running in a sunny meadow, full of energy, entertaining the angels with his antics.  He will remain forever more in our hearts and minds.  Bam we will miss you each and every day.  Rest in peace little man, someday we will all reunite.  Love and kisses, Your Mom & Dad
