Depending on your pet’s particular surgery, health, and anxiety level, he or she may receive either a local or general anesthetic or a sedative. A local anesthetic
affects just the area where your pet is having the procedure. It won’t induce sleep.
A general anesthetic, however, will induce deep sleep. Therefore, he or she won’t be conscious during the surgery. The pet wont feel any pain, know what’s going
on, or remember the event. It’s given intravenously.
