At Adobe Animal Hospital all three of our veterinarians perform a variety of surgical procedures. These range of routine spays and neuters to certain emergency procedures. Each patient that undergoes general anesthesia at our hospital will require a physical examination and pre-anesthetic blood work. Each patient is monitored closely under anesthesia by a dedicated technician anesthetist, and numerous parameters are measured during the procedure using SurgiVet anesthetic monitors. Our staff takes every measure to make sure we are providing the best care of your pet while they undergo surgery at our hospital.
The ovariohysterectomy or spay procedure is performed on female canine and feline patients. This procedure involves the complete removal of the ovaries and uterus of an animal. Spays not only ensure that an animal cannot reproduce, but also significantly reduces the risk of certain types of hormone-related cancer.
A neuter procedure is performed on male patients and involves the complete removal of both testicles. As with a spay, this procedure eliminates the animal’s ability to reproduce and significantly reduces the risk of testicular and prostate cancer.
Our veterinarians are able to remove a wide variety of growths and masses. These procedures can vary greatly as the size, shape and type of growths we see can differ significantly. We also always offer the option to send growths off for histopathology – this will tell is what the growth is, and whether follow-up treatment is recommended (as may be in the case of malignant/cancerous masses). In some cases, masses and growths may require a veterinary surgical specialist to perform the removal, and we will refer your pet to one of these, as needed.
