Why a Pet Might Need Surgery at an Animal Hospital

There are a number of reasons why a pet might need surgery at the Dessau Veterinary Clinic. Sometimes, pets are involved in an accident and they break a bone that requires the attention of a surgeon. In other cases, the pet may have swallowed something that isn't passing through the digestive tract and needs to be removed. Still, other animals end up requiring surgery because they have been diagnosed with cancer and a tumor needs to be removed. Regardless of the reason why, the team from the Dessau Veterinary Clinic will walk you through this process step by step.

How a Trained Veterinarian Carries Out Surgery

When it is time for a pet to have surgery, he or she will be brought back to the operating room. The anesthesia team will put the pet to sleep during the procedure. This is necessary to keep the pet still. Next, the vet will carry out the required surgical procedure. After this, the incision site will be closed and the animal will be taken to the operating room where he or she will wake up in a comfortable setting. Finally, the pet will be discharged home once stable. Most of our patients will need to have follow-up visits to make sure that the repair is healing in an appropriate manner.
