... it has side effects.They do their job no matter how much dog crying.Is this horrible experience of pain and fear will not effect on mind of animal?Anesthia demands little more care.I hav seen chances of death with anesthia are 0% if dose was properly calculated according animal
It depends on the treatment but it is unethical to cause intense pain and do nothing. They dont have to completely anesthetize an animal to decrease suffering. Some procedures can be done under local or sedating drugs to lessen pain. If this vet was treating MY animals, I think I would go to another. But again, it depends on what they are doing as to whether the pain warrants anesthesia or sedation.
There is always a risk with anesthesia 10% on humans and a bit more for small or very weak animals-about 15% with healthy animals. Let me put it this way--- I would be tempted to shoot the vet, but that would be a bad example for my coonhounds. I would report this vet as being a sadist to the ASPCA. As far as telling if a vet is good by a dog's reaction-forget that. My bluetick loves the vet. To him there isn't any such thing as bad attention, but he doesn't get the good dog discount-he's busy dancing on his hind feet, sticking his nose in the cat cages, while the hapless atendents are being drug around. My Walker doesn't like the vet-but she gets a good dog discount. One nurse said in a snarky voice that Missy was just a droopy hound, and 100 lb Missy managed to crawl in a hole behind the chairs, they thought was too small for a chihuahua.
Now Missy stopped the rape of a little girl in the alley behind the house, and she jumped one of my son's friends that grabbed me.
Report this vet now. It's sadistic. Are you sure this person has a license?
Sav, this is horrible. I currently own 6 dogs and 3 cats. I would never allow a vet to work on an animal while denying it pain relief. I would report this guy or this group of people if at all possible. It is inhumane and deplorable. It clearly points to a complete lack of compassion on the part of the doctors who are administering care. Please tell me you are changing vets?
Blessings upon you, ~~millison
