All about Ripley
Most cats and dogs undergo some type of surgery that requires anesthesia during their lifetimes even if it is only the surgery done for spaying and neutering. Other common procedures that require anesthesia include dental cleaning or dental surgery as well as repairing broken bones. Whenever surgery is done on a pet the topic of anesthesia arises. For the purposes of this article we will be talking about general anesthesia where pets are completely unconscious. We’ve all heard about the potential risks and possible complications regarding anesthesia in our own lives, and so it makes good sense to wonder about anesthetic complications when it comes to our pets as well.
Luckily, veterinary medicine has made huge strides in reducing anesthetic complications. So long as the pet is properly monitored during the actual surgery and the pet has been carefully prescreened for possible problems, anesthesia on pets is quite safe and problems are few.

Ripley was a rescue from the animal shelter.
Loves to go to the Leash free dog park. There he runs and plays for an hour until he's tired out enough to go home and not bother his masters for most of the day :-)
He went to Obedience School and graduated as "Top Dog" of his senior puppy class!!
Loves to play fetch, eats anything with peanut butter. His tricks so far include Sit pretty, High Five and Working on "play dead" and "roll over".
