Surprisingly, our pets our considered to be seniors by the time they are seven years old, which is when diseases of “old age” may start to appear. Examinations are recommended every 6 months for senior pets, rather than yearly for our younger patients, so that problems can be detected as early as possible. During these examinations, our veterinarians can offer laboratory tests and nutritional advice.
Spays and neuters are an important part of controlling the numbers of pets and the burden these numbers place on our society and the humane societies. Surgery fees for these “routine procedures” are about half the “actual costs” for similar surgeries, so we feel that we are helping with animal population control. Spays and neuters are also important in the prevention of many hormone-driven diseases including mammary, uterine, testicular and prostate diseases, and behavior problems such as roaming and spraying.
Ovariohysterectomy refers to the surgical procedure performed on female dogs and cats to render them infertile. There are many benefits of having this procedure for your female companion. First, you will contribute to the prevention of the dog and cat overpopulation. Second, an ovariohysterectomy will eliminate the sometimes ‘messy’ heat cycles that attract male dogs to your house from miles away. Third, you will help prevent diseases in your pet such as pyometra (infection in the uterus) and mammary cancer. An ovariohysterectomy involves surgical removal of both ovaries and the uterus. It can be performed under a number of anesthetics and monitoring devices. If you are shopping around for a competitive price on this procedure, be sure to question the type of anesthetic used and the monitoring equipment and procedures followed.
We use several monitoring devices during your pet’s anesthetic. A veterinary technician continually assesses your pet’s vital signs during the procedure. Although the risk of an anesthetic death in a normal healthy pet is very rare, our monitoring devices and procedures allow us to respond to an anesthetic emergency faster. Faster responses can save lives. Please call or visit our facility to learn more about our ovariohysterectomy procedures.
Neutering refers to the surgical procedure performed on male dogs and cats to render them infertile. There are many benefits to neutering your male companion. First, you will contribute to the prevention of the dog and cat overpopulation. Second, neutering will eliminate undesirable and at times, embarrassing behavior in your male companion. Third, you will help prevent diseases in your pet such as prostate disease and testicular cancer. Neutering involves surgical removal of both testicles. It can be performed under a number of anesthetics and monitoring devices. If you are shopping around for a competitive price on this procedure, be sure to question the type of anesthetic used and the monitoring equipment and procedures followed. We use several monitoring devices during your pet’s anesthetic.
Soft Tissue Surgery
Soft tissue surgery includes surgeries not associated with bone. Examples of soft tissue surgeries and their benefits are listed below. Probably the most common soft tissue surgery performed at our clinic is the removal of masses or ‘lumps’ on animals. Most of these masses or ‘lumps’, once removed and tested, are benign (non-harmful); however, occasionally they are more serious. Early removal and accurate diagnosis of a ‘lump’ is necessary to improve the outcome in your pet if the mass is cancerous. Lacerations are also common in pets and suturing will reduce the chance of infection, improve healing time and reduce scarring. Many breeds of dogs are susceptible to ear infections. Surgical treatment on ears improves air flow into the ear canal and can reduce the occurrence of ear infections.
