This informative article about anesthesia for dogs will put your mind at ease whenever your dog needs surgery. Read up and make sure your vet is following the latest protocols.

Canine Anesthesia: Special Considerations Based on Breed, Size, and Conformation

Photo Credit: vrangtantebrun,

While it’s true that Yorkshire Terriers and Great Danes are members of the same species, they are hardly alike when it comes to anesthesia. There is no one size fits all anesthetic protocol for dogs, and veterinarians must amend what they do based on their patient’s breed, size, and conformation. -- READ MORE

WOW! Talk about "knowledge is power"! Sooo informative and explained simply for us layman.

These really makes you rethink about those tragic occasions when a dog doesn't survive the surgery, or succumbs just hours after. Could the anesthesia protocol have been an underlying cause? Hmmm....

This will definitely make me be far more cautious and more proactive in discussing the process my vet will be using should any of my dogs need anesthesia.

Thank you for always keeping us so well I formed.

Mich love!!

That is a great article.  Thank you for sharing it.  I always run blood tests before any surgery 🙂

This is an excellent article!  I agree with everything it says, especially noting that the same anesthetic plan is not ideal for all patients.  It is always a good idea to run pre-surgical blood tests (and ECG if needed) and always place an IV catheter prior to surgery.
