Common Pet Surgeries

Of course, spaying and neutering procedures are among the most common surgical procedures performed on pets. These surgeries are considered routine and generally proceed without any complications. However, pets often require other types of surgery when problems arise. Tooth extractions, removal of benign skin masses, luxated patella repairs, ACL repair, removal of eye or ear cysts, wound repair and removal of bladder stones are some of the most common procedures performed by veterinarians. Cancer surgery is a common procedure, as well as various types of abdominal surgery.

Discussing Surgery With Your Veterinarian

Veterinarians understand that having your pet undergo surgery is an upsetting event. Before the surgery, the vet will explain the procedure and the expected outcome thoroughly with you. If you have any questions, the vet will address them as completely as possible, so you are assured that your pet is getting the best care possible.

Before and After Care for Pet Surgery

Your Bakersfield veterinarian will carefully assess your pet’s health prior to performing surgery to determine if any problems exist that could affect the procedure or the outcome. During surgery, only approved anesthetics are used, and the animal’s heart rate and breathing are carefully monitored to ensure he or she is tolerating the surgery well. After surgery, the vet and staff will oversee the recovery process. As soon as the animal has become conscious and alert, you will be able to take your pet home.  Some procedures may require a more extended stay at the hospital to ensure proper healing. The vet will provide detailed instructions about aftercare and will provide a follow-up appointment to ensure your pet is progressing normally after surgery.
