From spay and neuter services to more complex veterinary surgical procedures, DCC Animal Hospital is well equipped to handle all of it for your pet.
In fact, we use almost the same safety measures as human hospitals. We plan, propose and perform a preoperative examination according to your pet’s condition at our in-house laboratory.
Depending on the nature of the surgery, pre‐surgical abnormalities will be addressed, drug selections may be modified and sometimes surgeries are postponed or even canceled until the surgical team feels the surgery is the only option.
Once anesthesia is deemed safe for the patient, we use specialized monitoring equipment to track vital signs and pay close attention to ensure the best possible outcome for your pet.
We strive to provide the highest quality of surgical care and achieve the highest level of client satisfaction.
Our approach to veterinary care allows us to provide the best possible treatment options for your pet. Connect with our expert veterinarians today.
Below are some of the common procedures we perform under our vet services for cats, dogs along with the other small animals:
Before the surgery, the veterinary team confirms the specifics of the procedure by taking a complete physical exam of the patient. They ensure blood tests have been documented and reviewed by the veterinarian prior to the surgery.
You should assess all the complications involved in the surgery along with its risk. You should consider age and health of your pet, outcome of the surgery, recovery time and rehabilitation.
The pre-surgical instructions vary on the type of surgery your dog will undergo. It can be an emergency or a planned surgery. However, general instructions include feeding and drinking the day before or morning of the surgery, not to feed your dog prior to the surgery etc.
Few precautions that you should take are regular clinical visits for your pet's for routine checkups, keep a check on his medication, food and water, cleaning his stitches, changing the bandage, arrange a warm place that will provide him maximum comfort and do not discontinue your pet's recovery program.
Most common surgical procedures in dogs are spay, neuter, dental extractions and benign growth on the skin.
Some emergency surgeries include skin lacerations, torn cruciate or ACL ruptures, internal bleeding, intestinal obstruction, fracture repair, malignant skin tumour, bladder stone and spleen cancer.
Most of the dog surgeries are low risk. However, they do have their own concerns from discovering to curing them. We have advanced technology which makes the surgeries low risk.
