At My Vet Animal Clinic, we are able to perform a number of surgical procedures from routine to more complex.
General Surgery – Our hospital is well equipped to perform most minor and major surgical procedures ranging from spays and neuters to more complicated emergency, soft-tissue surgeries. All surgeries are handled with the utmost respect and concern. Before surgery, each patient receives a thorough physical examination to identify any existing medical conditions that might endanger your pet’s health. Because not all problems can be detected upon examination, we recommend pre-anesthetic blood testing. These tests not only give us a complete picture of your pet’s health but also allow us to tailor an anesthetic regimen specifically designed for your pet. During surgery, your pet’s temperature and blood pressure are monitored by our veterinary team.
Spaying your pet early on offers the best protection from diseases like uterine infections and breast tumors, malignant or cancerous, in about 50% of dogs and 90% of cats. Neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems. Other added benefits include:
- Your female pet will not go into heat once it is spayed.
- Your male pet may better behave after the operation.
- Your male dog will be less likely to run away from home, as unneutered dogs will do anything to find a mate.
