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.

Patrick and his brother Francis were a delightful pair of rats we got as babies and loved


very much.  Francis passed away last year so we decided to get a companion for Patrick.


We were talked into getting  a pair of brothers (or so we thought) to keep him company last


year, and 2 months later we had 3 babies making a grand total of 6.  Patrick had a new


lease on life after that and we got a few really good months with him.  He started to show


signs of slowing down before Christmas and last night it was time to join his brother.


He will be very much missed.
