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.

You've only been gone a few hours. I just want you to know that I loved you so very much. For almost eight years, you have always been there for me. You have been there to share in my joy, you were there to comfort me in my sorrows, and you were here when I felt lonely or scared. When you were only one and the vet diagnosed you with a heart condition, I treasured every moment that I was able to spend with you. You were a gift to me from God, and I'm so thankful you chose me as your parent. I hope that you rest in peace, Moonie. I'll always love you, and I will always miss you. Thank you for always loving me, unconditionally.
Love mom.
