Common pet surgeries include spaying or neutering, dental cleanings and extractions, tumor removal, and orthopedic procedures. Spaying and neutering are done to prevent unwanted litters of puppies or kittens. Teeth cleanings help keep teeth healthy by removing plague and tartar build up that can lead to gum disease.
Tumor removals may be necessary if a growth appears on your pet’s skin or inside their body. Orthopedic procedures such as cruciate ligament repair, bone pinning, joint repairs, and fracture reductions are used to treat injuries or arthritis in older pets. In any case, it is important for pet owners to understand the risks associated with surgery before deciding on a treatment option for their pet. Pet owners should also get a full understanding of the post-surgical care that will be required in order to ensure a full recovery and prevent any potential complications.
Additionally, some pet surgeries are done for cosmetic reasons, such as declawing or ear cropping. Pet owners should always speak with their veterinarian before considering any type of surgical procedure for their animal companion. Pet surgeries come with risks and potential complications, so it is important to make sure you are well-informed about the procedure beforehand.
