Pet Surgery and Pet Wellness Care from Your Toledo Veterinarian
Proper diet, scheduled vaccinations and regular checkups can go a long way toward keeping your pet healthy, but some situations may call for surgical intervention. While the prospect of surgery may fill you with anxiety, you can rest easy knowing that your pet has access to a skilled veterinarian. Here at Trilby Animal Hospital we perform surgery to address a wide variety of needs, from acute injuries to pet wellness care.
Examples of Pet Surgery Performed at Our Animal Hospital
Pet spay and neuter procedures are a common type of pet surgery. Neutering of male animals simply means surgical castration, while spaying involves a somewhat more invasive procedure to remove a female animal's uterus and ovaries. Pet spay and neuter surgeries allow pets to avoid the cancers or other diseases that can afflict the reproductive organs, boosting their chances for a longer, healthier life. They also prevent behavioral issues associated with the release of sex hormones.
Some pet surgeries repair sick or damaged internal organs. A dog with a twisted stomach or intestine, for example, may require immediate emergency surgery to correct this potentially fatal condition. Injured organs or organs containing tumors may also require surgery. Skin tumors may require surgical removal to protect the body's largest organ. Short-nosed (brachycephalic) pets with breathing problems may need corrective surgery to open the respiratory passages. Eye and ear surgeries can also improve function or remove diseases to those organs.
