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.

He loved curling up on my lap and sleeping until I had to move him.  He would never eat stale food, it had to be really fresh.  He wouldn't drink out of his water bowl, it had to be the water tap in the bathroom constantly running.  He would flick his paw in the water and then lick it.  He would sit at my feet when I was at my computer and when I would get up, he would sleep in my chair.  When I woke in the morning, I would find him next to my head.  He was an amazing cat.  He knew when I needed his company.  He would be sitting by the door when I came home at night.  I have lost a big part of my life as I had to put him in his final resting place because he had feline leukemia and lost his battle 2 weeks ago.  He was loved by all that knew him and my life won't be the same without him.  I love you Pringles....
