Depending on your pet’s diagnosis, our veterinarians may require your pet to undergo veterinary surgery. It is important to know that they make this decision with your best interest in mind, so here are a couple of things you might need to understand.

Why Does My Pet Need Surgery at Care Animal Hospital?

In the event of an injury, a fracture repair, or internal bleeding among many others, surgery is used by our vets to treat the problem area directly at the root. For urgent services, this usually happens when both oral and topical medication is no longer enough to fight the complication and needs a more invasive veterinary surgery.

However, surgery is not only performed on afflicted patients. It can also be optional, called elective surgeries, where a pet parent recommends a certain operation for their benefit or their pet’s. These commonly include spaying or neutering procedures, as well as debarking.

Overall, while an operation may seem like an intimidating process, the purpose is always justified and done with a lot of logical reasoning. As long as you submit your pets to a highly credible institution such as Care Animal Hospital, you can rest easy knowing your companion animals are in good hands.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Surgery Dangerous?

Depending on your pet’s diagnosis, or how invasive the surgery will be, there are always big or small risks that your pet will have to undergo.

As for anesthesia, it has long been debated whether or not it is safe for your pets to be under the influence. However, modern technology and further advancements in veterinary medicine have paved the way for a safer administration, decreasing the overall risk of anesthesia to your pets.

In my opinion, as long as you choose our veteran team of dedicated veterinarians with sophisticated monitoring tools and equipment to work on your case, it creates a more accurate, less-risk environment.

Is My Pet Too Old for Surgery?

There is no such thing as a pet too old for surgery. Regardless of age, your dogs or cats should not be detracted from the treatment they need.

Anesthesia should not be a factor either. Modern advances in medicinal technology have made it extremely safe and manageable, despite an animal’s nature, breed, size, or age.

Overall, if our vets think your pet needs the operation, then it would be best to follow suit. All those risks are outweighed by the dangers of not pushing through with veterinary surgery, so it is best to trust our doctors’ plans and choose what is best for your pet in the long run.
