Pet Surgery at Our Sioux Falls Animal Hospital
Some pet owners become alarmed when they hear that their beloved pet should have surgery -- but they really shouldn't. Modern veterinary surgery offers sophisticated techniques for handling a wide range of needs, from simple preventative procedures such as spay and neuter surgery to major operations. Whatever kind of surgery your pet may require, you can rest assured that you've got a caring capable friend at our Sioux Falls animal hospital.
Many Types of Pet Surgery
Pet surgery is sometimes used to diagnose conditions rather than treat them. If we're trying to identify an internal problem that isn't showing up on an X-ray, for example, we may use exploratory surgery to view the problem directly. At that point, we might perform additional surgery to treat the issue, or we might use a different form of treatment altogether. Other forms of pet surgery are preventative in nature. Spay and neuter surgery isn't a medical necessity, but it doesn't just prevent pregnancy either; this form of surgery can actually prevent deadly reproductive cancers from threatening your pet's life.
Other forms of pet surgery may have more urgency attached to them. Orthopedic surgery can be used to reconstruct a damaged knee or deteriorating joint that is causing your pain extreme pain and disability. Dental surgery can extract a dangerously infected tooth or remove oral cancer. Emergency surgery could save your pet's life by sealing arteries, mending extensive traumatic injuries, removing internal obstructions, assisting in difficult labor, or untwisting digestive organs twisted by bloat.
