Pet Surgery

Few people would list surgery as one of their favorite things to think about, either for themselves or for their pets. Animals occasionally need surgery just as humans do -- and in those situations, you want to know your furry friend is in expert hands. Here at Best Care Animal Hospital in Houston, we can provide skilled surgery as well as top-quality pre-operative and post-operative care for Houston and Spring TX pets just like yours.

The Many Applications of Veterinary Surgery

The most obvious applications for veterinary surgery are the treatment of injuries or diseases. For example, a pet who finds walking difficult may need orthopedic surgery to repair a damaged knee or treat a hip suffering from dysplasia. Some fractures may need to be set surgically, using metal hardware. Internal surgeries may be necessary to remove a urinary stone, tumor, or foreign object. Some internal conditions such as bloat or dystocia (difficult labor) may call for emergency surgery. Dental surgery can extract a diseased tooth or oral tumor.

Other types of veterinary surgery are less urgent in nature. The most well-known example is probably spay and neuter surgery. Surgical removal of the male or female reproductive organs means that your pet will never suffer from deadly reproductive cancers. Last but not least, diagnostic surgery can help us determine whether a condition requires additional treatment. For example, unusual skin lumps may be nothing to worry about, but they are commonly removed for biopsy just so we can make sure. 

Top-Quality Surgical Care From Our Houston Veterinarian

Whatever kind of surgery your pet may need, our Houston veterinarian can provide it. In fact, we strive to make your pet's entire surgical "journey" as safe, comfortable, and successful as possible. We start with careful evaluations of your pet's current condition and ability to receive anesthesia. Careful administration of anesthesia is critical, which is why we monitor this step with extraordinary care and attention to detail.

Following surgery, we will continue to provide care by prescribing painkillers, antibiotics, and other post-operative necessities. We will educate you on how to help your pet recuperate by changing dressings correctly, watching for any signs of infection or other complications, and giving your pet his meds on schedule. We can then follow up with an additional veterinary appointment to check on his progress.
