At Copperfield Animal Clinic, our goal is to make sure that every pet in the Houston area has access to a trained veterinarian. Sometimes, this also requires pet surgery. We understand that many pet owners are concerned when they hear that their pet is going to require pet surgery. That is why we are here to answer any questions and concerns that pet owners might have. There are a few important points that all pet owners should keep in mind when it comes to pet surgery. Trust the Copperfield Animal Clinic with all your pet surgery needs.
Why Is Pet Surgery Necessary?
At the Copperfield Animal Clinic, there are a few common reasons why pets might require surgery. One of the most common reasons is that the pet has suffered an injury that has led to a broken bone. While not every broken bone will require surgery, we will take an x-ray to make sure the bone is in the right spot. If not, then surgery could be required.
In addition, some pets have a tumor that needs to be removed. Not every tumor is cancer; however, we need to take the tumor out to make sure we understand what we are dealing with. Please know that we only recommend surgery as a last resort. We never want to subject pets to surgery unless it is necessary. We will work with you every step of the way.
How Is a Pet Surgery Handled at the Copperfield Animal Clinic?
On the day of the surgery, the pet will be brought back to the operating room. Then, the pet will be put to sleep for the duration of the procedure using anesthesia. After this, the surgeon will make the first incision and open the surgical site. The procedure will be completed while the pet's vital signs and lab values are followed closely. After the procedure is done, the pet will be taken to the recovery area to wake up in a comfortable environment. During the operation, we keep our families updated every step of the way. At the Copperfield Animal Clinic, you and your pet will be kept in good hands.
