While some pet illnesses are easy to treat with medications, some serious ones require surgery. We understand that you may be worried as a pet parent, but surgeries are safe when conducted by a professional veterinarian. Our veterinarians will ensure your pet is carefully monitored throughout the procedure and provide quality post-operative care. At Morgan Pet Clinic in West Omaha, we conduct safe surgeries after thoroughly evaluating your pet's current condition to optimal results.
What Requires Pet Surgery?
We perform routine surgeries such as spay and neuters for pets. These procedures are performed safely at Morgan Pet Clinic in West Omaha with your pet's comfort in mind. Certain health conditions that require pet surgery include:
Abdominal tumors can be either malignant or benign. Most commonly, they are malignant, which is why they require surgery. Common examples include squamous cell carcinomas, hemangiosarcomas, lymphosarcomas, among others.
Canine Cruciate Ligament Injuries
Signs of canine cruciate ligament injuries are limping, stiffness, or reluctance to move or climb stairs. However, with the help of our pet surgery, pets can return to normal activities after recovering from the procedure.
Mammary tumors don't always affect all mammary glands. However, if you notice your pet licking or biting one area more than usual, then she may have a mammary tumor that needs removal via surgery. Our veterinarians at Morgan Pet Clinic may recommend a lymph node evaluation during surgery to help determine if cancer has spread beyond the breast tissue.
Bladder stones can be composed of minerals, bacteria, or struvite. They require surgical removal because they are sharp and could damage the urinary tract if left untreated.
Both benign tumors and cancerous masses need to be removed before they spread to other parts of the body. Our veterinarians will provide your pet a safe and effective procedure that prevents future problems from occurring. One example is the excisional biopsy, which involves making an incision into the mass followed by removing all cancerous tissue for further diagnosis.
How to Prepare Your Pet for Surgery
There are a few things you can do to ensure the best outcome for your pet's surgery. First, you should prepare your home for post-surgery care. This includes setting up an area where your pet can rest comfortably and minimizing household noise to ensure its comfort. Second, you should take steps before the day of surgery to reduce any stress for your pet. Keep your pet on its usual schedule by feeding it at the same time every day and taking it outside for potty breaks at regular intervals. You may also want to keep your pet in its usual environment by providing familiar bedding, toys, and scents.
