Many types of pet surgery include spaying and neutering to more complicated procedures, such as orthopedic surgery. While we do not personally perform surgery, our experienced veterinarian at Natural Holistic Health Care in North Miami Beach, FL, will be able to refer you to a surgeon for the highest quality of care. We understand your pet is a member of your family, and we will treat them as such.
Types of Pet Surgery
Spaying and neutering are the most common types of pet surgery. Spaying is the surgical removal of a female pet's ovaries and uterus, while neutering is the surgical removal of a male pet's testicles. These procedures are typically performed when pets are young, around 6 to 9 months old. Other common types of pet surgery include:
Your pet's teeth are just as important as your own! Regular dental checkups and cleanings can help prevent gum disease, tooth loss, and other problems. In addition, our veterinarian is here to help with a referral if your pet needs dental surgery.
Orthopedic surgery is performed to correct skeletal or joint abnormalities. Pets often need to be injured or suffer from hip dysplasia.
Soft Tissue Surgery
Soft tissue surgery is performed on the tissues surrounding the organs. It is often necessary to treat injuries, tumors, or other conditions.
Sometimes, surgery is necessary. If your pet has been injured or is suffering from a life-threatening condition, our skilled veterinarian will provide them with a referral to the emergency care they need.
Reconstructive surgery corrects congenital disabilities, injuries, or other conditions that cause deformities. It can help your pet live a happier, healthier life.
Therapeutic surgery treats conditions our veterinarian cannot treat with medication or other therapies. For example, it is often used to treat cancerous tumors.
What to Expect during Pet Surgery
A few days or a week before pet surgery, your surgery team will likely perform a physical exam and some diagnostic tests to ensure your pet is healthy enough for surgery.
On the day of the procedure, you will drop your pet off at the animal hospital. First, they will be given a sedative to help them relax. Once they are asleep, the veterinarian will begin the surgery.
After surgery, the vet will monitor your pet's vital signs and relieve pain. You will also receive detailed instructions on how to care for your pet at home during their recovery.
