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 really do miss Buddy. I got him on October 10th, 2005, one day before my birthday. I told him all of my problems and I swear he listened so well. He was the best fish I ever had. It was my fault he died and I am so mad at myself for it. I hadn;t cleaned his tank in about 2 weeks and it was very dirty plus we had no fish food so he didn't eat for a few days. Every morning I would look in his tank and say hello Buddy. One mornig I woke up and he was dead in the corner of his tank. I wanted to bawl my eyes out. At least he is in a better place now. I can't wait to see you over the rainbow bridge Buddy. I'll love you forever.
