Common Types of Emergency Vet Surgery
There are many situations that can arise a need for emergency veterinary surgery. One of the most common types of emergency surgery performed in our office is that of surgery to remove a blockage from a pet's digestive system. When a pet ingests a foreign object (such as a sock), the material can easily become lodged somewhere along the digestive tract and result in potentially fatal complications if not handled quickly. Our emergency surgery allows us to remove foreign objects and other life-threatening blockages.
Another common type of emergency surgery that we perform is that of surgery to treat internal bleeding after a pet has been injured by a fall or by being struck by a vehicle. The goal of this type of surgery is to stop the bleeding and protect your pet from additional complications.
What to Expect From Our Veterinary Team
Those are just a couple of the types of emergency surgery that we perform in our office on a fairly regular basis. If your pet ever needs an emergency surgery in our office, rest assured that our veterinary team will always go out of our way to make sure you remain informed and educated. We also will keep your pet carefully monitored while he or she is under anesthesia during the procedure, as well as during the recovery process. We will not send your pet home until we are confident in his or her recovery.
