What should I do if my veterinarian suggests surgery?

We realize how frightening, it might be to discover that your pet needs surgery. Veterinarians at Animal Hospital do not prescribe surgery lightly. If treatment is suggested, you can be certain that it is in your pet's best interests. It is also critical that you understand why a surgical treatment is being advised and that you are confident in making the best decisions for your pet's health. Veterinary surgical operations are classified as either urgent or elective.

  • Neutering
  • Dental extractions
  • Noncancerous skin growths

Urgent Care Pet Surgery Procedures 

  • Skin abscesses or lacerations
  • Fracture repair
  • Internal bleeding
  • Bladder stones or urethral blockages
  • Intestinal obstruction due to foreign substance
  • Torn cruciate or ACL ruptures
  • Mass or tumor excision


Risk Factors in the Pet Surgeries

When your pet is deemed generally healthy, we conduct elective operations to minimize problems. Thanks to advancements in contemporary veterinary medicine and veterinary surgical instruments that change the veterinary care standards even urgent care pet surgery are now substantially reduced risk.

Exams, pre-surgery medicine, anesthetic, pain management measures, and monitoring of vital signs, as well as protocols during surgery such as monitoring of vital signs (heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen levels, body temperature, CO2 levels), all help to decrease risk.

Procedures in Pet Surgery

Usually, animal Hospitals are dedicated to offering the highest levels of veterinary medical quality. The procedure that is carried out in the hospital is usually the same. When you understand the procedure it will help you to reduce your anxiety level.

Pre-operative evaluations

Medical staff will check the surgery details, do a physical examination of the patient, and ensure that blood tests have been conducted and evaluated by the vet to determine whether your pet is at risk of anesthesia-related issues.

Dedicated Operating Rooms

Surgeries are conducted in our animal hospital's specialized surgical suite. To minimize infection and cross-contamination, this space is maintained entirely sterile.

Making the Decision to Have Pet Surgery 

Before you decide whether to continue with surgery, your veterinarian will discuss possible problems and other considerations to consider when selecting what is best for your pet.

When deciding whether to proceed with pet surgery, consider the following factors:

  • Your pet's general health and age
  • Potential problems from surgery
  • The potential result if surgery is not done
  • Recovery time and post-op care at home after surgery

While the decision to have your pet undergo suggested surgery is entirely up to you, veterinary experts will give you all data and possible consequences to help. You can be educated and able to make a compassionate choice that is in both your and your pet's best interests.
