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.

Zuba is in my heart always - he was so talkative and emotional - he told me when he was hungry or thirsty (he only drank out of the faucet), when he wanted treats, when he wanted to play fetch, go outside and chase lizards or when he wanted my love and attention... He would open cabinets, drawers and doors... he even chose certain flipflops to chew just like a dog might do.  

He died unexpectedly just 5 days ago and everywhere I look in our house I see his cute little face and hear his sweet little voice... I miss him so much - he was my little love - he would jump into my lap and flop down into a tiny little baby ball and then beg me to rub his tummy - if I stopped, he would cry for more... my sweet little guy didn't deserve to die so young, my only peace is that we are one.
