Cats Going To Sleep For Surgery

Cats experience health issues just like people do that involve being put to sleep. Sometimes, cats undergo elective surgical procedures with anesthesia, such as spaying and neutering. If you understand cat anesthesia and how it works, then you will likely be more at ease while your cat is in the hospital. Anesthesia is administered in the same way that it is for people. An intravenous line is placed in a leg, and medications are given through the line so that the cat goes to sleep. Vital signs are monitored during the procedure, such as the heart rate and blood pressure. Once the surgery is over, the cat is slowly brought out of its deep sleep with the help of other medications and oxygen.
As with all medications and procedures, there are risks involved with anesthesia. However, the benefits often outweigh the risks, especially if the procedure is beneficial for your cat. Some of the reactions include sneezing, coughing, and wheezing. Most of the reactions associated with anesthesia are minor. Cats usually do fine after surgical procedures that involve anesthesia, so there is often no need to worry. Most of the time, your cat will need to stay at the animal hospital for a few hours or even overnight so that the staff can monitor the cat's condition. If there are any adverse effects, then the medical team is there to correct them as quickly as possible.

When you get your cat home after anesthesia has been given, don't be surprised if it seems a bit unbalanced while walking. Your cat will probably want to sleep all day until the medication completely wears off. The vet can conduct tests before the procedure to determine if there are any health concerns that might make it difficult for your cat to receive anesthesia. If there are any present, then the doctor can work to come up with another solution for your cat.
