Pets and Anesthesia

Whenever your pet may need anesthesia, very special considerations are taken to ensure the safety of your companion animal.  Your Veterinarian will thoroughly examine your pet first to make sure he/she is healthy enough to undergo anethesia – even if it’s just for a dental cleaning.  Depending on your pet’s general health and age, your Vet may also run other tests like blood, urnine, electrocardiograph, and x-rays.  He will check for any dangerous heart, kidney or any other health conditions that may exist. 

During the anesthesia, your Vet will monitor and record your pet’s vital signs – such as body temperature, heart rate, and respiration – as well as other factors to ensure the safety of your pet while under anesthesia.

Though there is some risk associated with any medical procedure, modern anethesia is safe, even for older pets.  If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to consult with your Vet and get y0ur questions answered.

Be sure to check with your local Pet Cemetery about their guidelines before shopping for Pet Cemetery Stones.  Each Pet Cemetery has different restrictions, rules and covenants about the size they will allow you to use.
