Reasons for Pet Surgery

At Alexander at the Park Veterinary Hospital, there are a few reasons why we recommend surgery to our patients. Please know that we will always look for more conservative treatment options when possible; however, this is not always the case. For example, a pet might have a broken bone that needs to be reset before it can heal properly. In this case, surgery might be the only option.

In other cases, there might be an abscess or a cyst that needs to be drained because it is causing discomfort and could pose an infectious risk. In other cases, there could even be a cancerous tumor that has to be removed. Sometimes, pets ingest a foreign body that won't pass. In this case, the only option is pet surgery. On the day of the operation, pet owners should have a few expectations.

The Day of the Operation

At Alexander at the Park Veterinary Hospital, the day of the operation is handled with great care. First, we will take your pet back to our operating room. Then, we will use anesthesia to put your pet to sleep for the procedure. After this, a trained surgeon will handle the operation with great care, completing it as quickly and as safely as possible. Once finished, your pet will be closed up. Then, he or she will go to a recovery area to wake up in a comfortable setting. We encourage follow-up appointments to ensure the recovery process is proceeding as planned.
