Pet Surgery

Sheehy Animal Hospital: Pet Surgery

When someone owns a pet, this comes with a lot of responsibility. In addition to the importance of preventative care, it is also important for families everywhere to have a place to go in the event of a pet emergency. Some emergencies can be quite serious and can lead to a pet needing to have surgery. The prospect of pet surgery can be scary for families to process, even if the surgery is a planned procedure such as a spay or neuter operation. For this reason, the dedicated team at Sheehy Animal Hospital is here to help families understand what is involved in pet surgery and how these procedures are carried out.


The Steps Involved in Pet Surgery

The first step involved in any pet surgery is to educate the family on how the procedure is going to be performed and the various risks and benefits. Once the family has agreed to the procedure, the animal will be taken back and be anesthetized. Pain medication will be given to ensure that the animal is comfortable. Finally, we will confirm that everyone in the room understands the procedure that is happening. Then, the operation will be carried out safely but efficiently. Once the operation is finished, the animal will be taken to the recovery area.

Recovering After Pet Surgery

Once in the recovery area, the animal will have some time to wake up and recover. The anesthesia will be reversed. We will make sure that the animal is still comfortable and provide some more pain medicine if this is necessary. Over time, the pet will return to his or her normal self. A cone may be provided to make sure that the animal does not scratch open the scars and stitches. We will monitor the animal closely to ensure that the area is healing as expected. We will make sure no complications come up.
