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.

My name is Ben (after Ben Hogan, the famous golfer, Dad's a golf fanatic!) - I have to admit that I am pretty much a mama's boy...much to my dad's dismay! I love to cuddle but only when the time is right for ME, when the doorbell rings I get so excited to see who is coming to visit me, I never bark, in fact if I didn't know who you were I'd still let you in my house, probably invite you for dinner too. I love squeaky toys, pulling them apart that is and watching the fuzz blow all over the place, I LOVE to nap anywhere and everywhere and I love all other dogs, even if they don't like me! I especially like my mom's friend's dog, Casey, we go out as often as possible, you could say we are a steady item! Everybody always tells me how handsome I am but I stay true to my one and only Casey!
