At East Side Animal Hospital we perform many soft tissue surgeries including ovariohysterectomy (spay) and neuter for males. We also perform many soft tissue surgeries such as tumor removal, bladder surgery and abdominal exploratory. Often, abdominal exploratory is needed to collect tissue samples or identify and correct causes for body obstructions (foreign body ingestion).
All pets undergoing surgical or dental procedures receive pre-surgical injectable medication to allow for your pet to be stress and pain free for procedure and recovery. We place IV catheters before surgery and pets receive IV fluids during their procedure. Your pet will be intubated and receive gas anesthesia and oxygen. Our trained staff monitor vital signs throughout your pet’s procedure just as for humans undergoing anesthesia.
