Risks of sedating your cat

If injectable anesthetic medication is used, this medication is continued until the patient is permitted to wake up.

If inhalant anesthesia is chosen, a breathing tube is inserted into the patient’s main airway (or sometimes an anesthetic mask is placed over the mouth and nose) and connected to a machine that delivers a carefully calculated mixture of oxygen and inhalant anesthetic.

General anesthesia also tends to cause muscle relaxation, which has additional advantages when x-rays are required.Induction generally begins with administration of a sedative.This helps relax the patient so the rest of the induction activities can proceed.The patient inhales this mixture until the procedure is completed and the patient is permitted to awaken.Both injectable and inhaled general anesthesia will safely keep your pet asleep and free from pain.
