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.

I will always remember you as my gentle love,

Snuggled beside me you would give me a shove.

Until I awoke and gave you some love and a treat,

You greeted me each morning  with the warmth on my chest from your feet.

I came home to your eyes looking up through the window on the door,

Waiting for me and greeting me long before my feet hit the floor.

I will always remember your gentleness and how you cuddled so tight.

I will never forget you my fury friend and my love for you will always shine as a light.

You will always be in my heart Winky.
