Khursheed Mama, DVM, DACVAA, professor of veterinary anesthesiology at Colorado State University, says breed-specific anesthesia challenges are not as common as people think they are.

Brachycephalic breeds are the most likely to have problems during anesthesia. Other breeds that have cardiac-related issues are at a higher prevalence, as well, but a good physical examination and history would find that out before anesthesia. Some breeds where drug metabolism may be influenced can also have problems during anesthesia.
