Study: Dogs commonly hypothermic after anesthesia

Dogs undergoing procedures requiring anesthetic for surgery or diagnostic purposes commonly become hypothermic, according to research from Spain. More than 83% of the 1,525 animals evaluated in the study were found to have hypothermia after an anesthetic procedure. Dogs in lateral recumbency tended to have higher internal body temperatures than those in other positions, the study found. The same group previously found that 96.7% of cats experience hypothermia after anesthetic procedures. ScienceDaily
