    anesthesia

    Advertisements
    My 7 month old English Bulldog passed away two weeks ago. He was going under anesthesia to get neutered and he stopped breathing and they couldn't bring him back. I've read up a lot about it and they say that bulldogs are more prone to complications with anesthesia... but has anyone else gone through this? I still just can't believe such a routine procedure turned out like this.

    - I am so sorry. As with humans, there is the risk of an anesthesia complication with even the simplest/most routine procedures.

    i'm sorry for your loss.

    did you do a blood work up first?

    i've only lost one dog on the table, & it was because he'd been under for nearly 8 hours. it was a terminal surgery. we were collecting data while the animal was anesthestitized.

    i'm guessing the bulldogs' trouble come from their anatomy...the smushed nose.

    do you know what type of anesthesia it was? inhaled? ventilated or not?

    I am sorry for your loss. Did you do pre-op blood work on him? It could have been any number of things that went wrong with the process.

    I used to dog sit for a couple who had an English (among other dogs). They also lost him on the table due to his anatomy. Apparently, it's fairly common. I'm so sorry.
