How long will it take my dog to recover from anesthesia? With today's anesthetics, many of which are reversible, your pet should be almost completely normal by the time of discharge.

Many pets are sleepy or tired for twelve to twenty-four hours after anesthesia.

As is the case for us, our four-legged friends may require anesthesia as part of a surgery or procedure. Puppies receive anesthesia when they are spayed or neutered, and most pets receive anesthesia at least once more during their lifetimes. General anesthesia is achieved by administering drugs that suppress your dog’s nerve response.

A dog generally is under anesthesia for teeth cleaning for about 60 to 95 minutes. Dental cleanings usually last for 45 to 75 minutes depending on the existing dental condition, number of X-rays, and the amount of tartar in the mouth. After the procedure, the effect of the anesthesia lasts for 15 to 20 minutes.

For instance, the injectable anesthetic propofol may wear off fairly quickly, usually within an hour, explains veterinarian Dr. Scott. The gas inhalant, isoflurane instead tends to remain in the body for several hours, explains veterinarian Dr. Andy.

Anesthesia can be very scary for owners and this fear often leads pets to not get the treatment they need. This is where the risk benefit aspect of anesthesia comes into play. Electing not to clean the teeth of a 10 year old dog when they are otherwise healthy can lead to serious long term health and quality of life issues.

Externally, your pet may appear healthy, but internally, there could be a different story. “That’s why I recommend pre-anesthetic blood work one week or so ahead of time,” says Dr. Morgan.

I had a dog with dementia and he needed anesthesia for surgery and I didn’t have the same experience. Mentally, he acted no worse or better. It can take a few days for the strange feeling after the anesthesia to completely go away so I hope things are back to normal for you now.
