Most cat guardians worry when their cats have to go under anesthesia. I’m certainly one of them. Even though I’ve assisted with all sorts of anesthetic procedures and surgeries in my years working in veterinary clinics, understanding how it all works, and what constitutes safe anesthetic practice still doesn’t completely take the worry out of it.

Knowing what to expect when your cat has to undergo anesthesia, and knowing the right questions to ask at your veterinary clinic prior to the procedure so that you can be sure that  your cat’s anesthesia will be done in the safest possible way, can help ease the worry factor.

In depth information about anesthesia for cats

Dr. James Anthony, a boarded veterinary dentist with over 30 years of experience, provides in depth information about feline anesthesia in this video.

About Dr. Anthony

If Dr. Anthony’s name sounds familiar to some of you, it’s because you may have seen me mention him in connection with 1TDC™, a 4-in-1 wellness solution that has beneficial effects on periodontal and joint, skin and coat health as well as overall stamina. Dr. Anthony conducted a a double blind periodontal health study with cats at The University of Saskatchewan. The results were published in The Journal of Periodontology in 2007 and 2009. His research demonstrated positive results beyond the studies published in the journal. “I was amazed at the positive results from the use of the 1TDC™ technology,” said Dr. Anthony, BSc(Agr), DVM, MRCVS, FAVD, DAVDC, DEVDC, Pag. “All periodontal measurements in the test animals improved significantly. The more I use the 1TDC™ technology, the more impressed I am.”

I don’t use the term “miracle” lightly, but 1TDC deserves to be called a miracle supplement. Click here for more information.

    I’ve lived with cats for over 40 years and didn’t know what I didn’t know (about anesthesia). Glad I read this because I have to bring my Dawn in for a dental visit. Thanks for providing this helpful info.

    I always worry when one of my kids has had to go under anesthesia. But we have to trust out vets and know they do the best possible for our kids.
