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.

I am a moma's boy.  I follow her around all the time.  I require lots of attention, but it is not my fault, my family just spoils me.  I love bones.  I can chew on them all day long.  I have a bone that is as big as me.  I carry that bone around with me everywhere, I even sleep on it.  I love to give kisses.   I got the bone for my birthday.  I had a birthday party.  I love cake and icecream.  I may not be pure bred, but  I am proud.  There is no other dog in the world quite like me.
