There have been a lot of developments in veterinary care in recent years, especially in the area of pet surgeries. We can save the lives of pets now that could not be saved a few years ago with equipment and modern techniques.
General Pet Surgeries
General surgery often happens when there is an emergency. Your pet gets injured or becomes sick suddenly could result in having surgery needed. Pets get things stuck in their digestive system and surgery is needed to remove it.
Spay and neuter
Spaying and neutering animals are recommended to help control the animal population. The procedure makes them healthier in addition to helping with population control. Once they have this procedure there are other health issues that will not be a concern. This is a relatively minor surgery, though it is more complicated for female animals than males, it is still very safe and one we do routinely.
Dental care is important for your pet, especially as they get older. Teeth decay or get worn down and sometimes they need to be extracted. If your pet seems uninterested in eating or is having trouble eating, the problem could be a painful tooth. Having regular cleanings helps with dental health and some people brush the teeth of their pets. An examination by a veterinarian can determine what is needed for your dog's dental health.
