Quality Pet Surgery at Van Loon Animal Hospital
Pet surgeries can be stressful for both you and your pet. Whether the procedure is routine or an emergency, pet surgeries can be difficult to handle. At Van Loon Animal Hospital in Holmen, we know how important your pet is to you. That is why our animal doctor is ready to provide the best quality of surgery your pet may need. We offer various surgical procedures, including dental, spay and neuter, and more.
Spay and Neuter
Spaying (for females) or neutering (for males) means removing all or part of an animal's reproductive organs. This can be performed as a routine surgery or laparoscopically at our clinic. In females, this means removing the ovaries as well. Spayed females will also not go into heat and attract unwanted males. Neutering or spaying your pet early is the best way to get the maximum benefit. That means before the pet has gone through her first heat cycle. Our pet doctor recommends spaying or neutering your pet around six months of age.
Sometimes our pets can have an issue with one or several teeth. This can be for several reasons. Teeth can become infected, which quickly causes the infection to spread to other teeth, tissue, or bone. Infections in the mouth can easily enter the bloodstream, which can pose even more dangerous health concerns. Sometimes pets break or damage a tooth, making it painful for your pet to eat. Broken, diseased, or damaged teeth must be extracted to help ease your pet's discomfort or to prevent the spread of dangerous diseases.
When we do an orthopedic procedure on your pet, the aim is to ensure the animal's limb gets back to normal or some semblance of normalcy. Our procedures may require the use of additional items to keep the animal's limb intact. These include casts, pins, and screws, plates, or even artificial joints, depending on how bad the injury is. If your pet had an in-depth procedure, recovery might take up to several weeks. We will only prescribe antibiotics if there are certain skin conditions or any sign of an infection.
