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.

Chubbychook was a little female gray tabby I adopted back in the Fall of 1991.Her mother had been hit by a car and left behind 5 little kittens barely 4 weeks old. We took Chubbychook home and loved her.  She died this May from renal failure.  We knew when it was time to bring her to our loving Veterinarian. "Lisa. " Love goes on, everyday I think about her.  I hope we get them back after we die.  It gives me hope.  Linda G.
