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.

While living in Colorado Springs, I was looking for a new pet.  I went to the human society page and found a section for senior citizens.  If you were low income and a senior citizen, they would pay half your adoption fee and give you a $400 allowance to support the dog each year. 
I went down and applied.  They showed me several dogs that were on the program.  I met Fritz and fell in love.  He is the best dog.  He was already house broken; crate trained, and loves to sleep with me in the bed.  He absolutely loves everyone, especially children.  My one year old grandson pulls and loves on him all the time.
