What Are the Reasons for Pet Surgery?
Pet surgery is something that is not undertaken regularly. Internal procedures are complex and can cause severe complications if something goes wrong. This is why it is best to partner with an experienced veterinarian if your pet requires surgery.
At TLC for Pets, serving Reisterstown and Owings Mills, MD, our team is highly skilled and ready to assist your pet. Below are some of the reasons your pet may require surgery.
Spay and Neuter Procedures
Spaying and neutering are the most common surgical procedures for pets. These procedures help to reduce the homeless pet population and can also have health benefits for your pet. Spaying your female pet eliminates the risk of her developing pyometra (a life-threatening uterine infection) and can also help reduce the risk of mammary cancer. Neutering your male pet can help prevent testicular cancer and reduce aggression.
Emergency and Other Procedures
At TLC for Pets, we perform a wide variety of surgical procedures. Whether we need to remove a suspicious growth or we need to rush your pet into surgery for an intestinal obstruction, we try to help pets live longer and happier lives.
For our established patients, we will do our best to help with emergencies in a timely manner. We may occasionally be able to help non-clients with emergencies as time permits.
