Sedating dog for xrays

Probably the most common reasons we sedate horses for are…

1) Stitching up wounds, to stop the horse wriggling!

However, the term anesthesia is more commonly used to refer to a state of deep sedation or unconsciousness during which a patient is unable to feel pain. The affected area can include the skin, underlying muscles, and nerves.

The medication used for local anesthesia does not cause the patient to fall asleep; when deep sedation or unconsciousness is required, general anesthesia is a better option.

Medications used for general anesthesia are available in many forms.

These patients die most commonly as a consequence of struggling and stress!

Surgery is not the only time when anesthesia is recommended.

Dogs generally require anesthesia or very heavy sedation before dental cleanings, dental x-rays, or complete dental examinations.
