Reasons Your Pet May Need Surgery
- Spaying: Typically one-in-four female dogs will develop an infection called pyometra. This is where the uterus swells with toxic pus, and the only cure is an emergency spay. The best way to prevent an emergency spay is to get your pet spayed right away. Once your female has been spayed, she will typically display more of an even mood since her hormones have been changed.
- Neutering: Neutering your pet will prevent testicular cancer and also reduces the risk of prostate disease. Much like the females mood will remain steady, a male dog’s need to roam will also be diminished after he has been neutered. They will also have less of a need to mark their territory in your house and on furniture as well.
- Orthopedic: If your pet has been showing signs of arthritis (limping, tiredness, irritability or difficulty moving), we can help. We specialize in helping correct disease and injuries of the bones, joints, and ligaments. Before operating, we will take your pet and examine the affected areas with the best in technology for a proper diagnosis.
