Different Types of Pet Surgery
Probably the most common surgical procedure pet owners will come across involves sterilization through spay & neuter surgery. Often applied when an animal is young, this procedure is highly recommended and helps prevent unwanted litters that otherwise oftentimes end up adding to stray populations when owners become overwhelmed.
Other types of surgery are used to help with trauma from accidents, animal fights, or unexpected injuries, such as being hit by a car. Similar to humans, this kind of surgery is focused on stabilizing the pet to help him begin healing and recovering.
Another type of surgery involves resolving orthopedic issues that maybe caused by disease, age, accidents, or similar problems where the animal’s body can’t do the job itself. This type of surgery might be applied to older animals who end up in their situation due to wear and tear.
