We always want our pets to be healthy throughout their lives. However, sometimes they require care that goes beyond regular preventative services. In such situations, the team at Animal Hospital of Hallandale is ready to provide the necessary surgical care for your pet. If your pet needs surgery, rest assured that they are in good hands every step of the way.
Pet Surgery Services
It is our honor to offer various surgical procedures based on your pet’s specific needs. One common request is for spay and neuter services, which are usually performed early in a pet’s life. Other instances where surgery may be necessary include tumor removal, soft tissue surgery, or orthopedic procedures for injuries. Before any surgery, we consult with pet owners to discuss different options and inform them about what to expect during their pet’s recovery. Our goal is to provide the best choices for our clients and their pets’ health.
Monitoring Surgery with Anesthesia
Monitoring your pet with anesthesia is an essential part of any successful pet surgery. Prior to surgery, pets are carefully screened to ensure they are healthy enough to undergo anesthesia. During the operation, our expert team closely monitors your pet’s vital signs to ensure their comfort and safety. This includes monitoring oxygen levels, heart rate, respiratory rate, and internal temperatures.
How to Prepare Your Pet for Surgery
It is normal for pets (and their owners) to feel some anxiety before surgery. To help alleviate stress, there are a few tips you can follow. Always adhere to the instructions provided by our veterinarian regarding food and water restrictions prior to surgery. It is also important to discuss any medications or supplements your pet is taking with our vet beforehand. This helps ensure your pet is in the best possible condition before surgery. Following surgery, post-operative care at home, along with follow-up visits to our vet, will ensure a speedy recovery.
Caring for Your Pet After Surgery
Proper care after surgery is just as critical as the procedure itself. It is important to closely monitor your pet following surgery for any signs of problems, such as excessive bleeding or swelling. Provide a comfortable resting space for your pet and ensure they have access to clean drinking water and food. Limit their activity for the first few days after surgery. If you have any concerns, do not hesitate to contact our vet right away. Additionally, expect a follow-up appointment relatively soon after the surgery.
