Lynne, maybe you can request oxygen? My Frankie is having surgery to remove some lumps and have them biopsied tomorrow. He is asthmatic. I requested oxygen.

Thanks Dede,

I realize I'm concerned about a procedure that is routine but I was still
worried about her little pushed in nose and having difficulty in breathing
while under but the technician I spoke to told me that she would be
carefully monitored during the procedure. After all she has been through in
her short 3 years I just feel bad about having to subject her to anything
that involves pain.  She's just so happy now.  And I'm still kind of in
disbelief about what happened with BooBoo.  I just don't take anything for
granted anymore when it comes to my pets.

I know how you feel.  Your new little one is healthy.  If you go to a
capable vet that uses iso for anesthesis, and does monitoring, she'll be
fine. I have seen the proceedure done many times. We waited almost a year to do our Dusty because she has a hypoplastic trachia, and asthma. I was a
basket case, but my wonderful vet called a specialist, and they used a
kitten sized tube to intubate her during the surgery.  She is now 10 yrs
old...fat and very content.

Good luck and God bless.
