It is inevitable that your furry loyal companion will need anesthesia multiple times during his or her lifetime. Although anesthesia is not without risks, it is much safer and predictable than it has ever been thanks to new anesthesia agents and technologies.
Many of the new safer anesthesia agents are the same agents employed in human medicine. These newer anesthetic agents, coupled with an adequate physical exam, pre-anesthetic blood testing and other diagnostic tests can greatly reduce risks to your loved ones.
Ask your veterinarian to discuss available anesthetic options when considering surgery or dental cleaning for your pet.
