Not one single thing in the whole world is absolutely without risk, including anaesthetics. But the risks are so low that you can pretty much ignore them when it comes to anaesthetics for dogs.

Having said that, there are two types, one of which is milder and ' safer' , but it costs quite a bit more than the other type.

Dogs are normally anaesthetised for dental work, simply because they don' t sit nice and still like we do at the dentist' s.
