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.

Sooky was very gentle and loved company. She was an outspoken cat, and would talk back to you quite often. Sooky greeted me at the frontdoor every time I came home. Even when we lived in a unit for 6 weeks , she recognized the sound of my car from the top floor, my brother would wonder why she went and sat at the door minutes before I would even get up the stairs. Sooky knew the meanings of several words, breakfast, sleeps, cuddles, come for a walk. She was also very sensitive to your mood, if she knew you were sad, she would climb on your lap and meow at you. Sooky was with me for nearly 17 years, and went to heaven on Monday July 2nd. She would follow me everywhere. My Little Angel. Missed very much.
