History

A 5-month-old 6-kg (13-lb) sexually intact male Chow Chow was anesthetized to undergo phacoemulsification for treatment of congenital cataracts. At the time of initial examination, the patient appeared healthy. The patient's medical record included an episode of pneumonia at 2 months of age that had apparently resolved with antimicrobial treatment.

Prior to sedation and general anesthesia, a complete physical examination was performed. The patient was tachypneic (40 breaths/min), although results of thoracic auscultation were unremarkable; a slightly high rectal temperature (38.8°C [101.8°F]) was attributed to the patient's young age and to the stress of being in the hospital.
