Klinika Vetriver General surgery

  • In some cases medical treatment alone is not enough and your pet may require a surgical intervention for soft-tissue lesions. Our 24-hour clinic offers veterinary surgery services, including not only routine procedures, such as pet neutering and spaying, but also surgical removal of kidney stones or skin lesions as well as life-saving surgical procedures. However, it is important to remember that disease prevention in pets is much easier than treatment. This is why you should consider a neutering/spaying procedure in order to reduce the risk of certain diseases.

    There are always a veterinary surgeon, anesthesiologist, and technician present in the operating room during any surgical procedure. Before the procedure, the animal receives inhalation anesthesia via a special isoflurane vaporizer. This technique is also used for administering anesthesia in humans.

    Before each veterinary surgical procedure, we do the assessments needed to diagnose the problem. In some cases, the treatment protocol requires surgery. During surgery the dog’s or cat’s vital signs are continuously monitored with diagnostic equipment to ensure the surgeon is constantly aware of the animal’s condition.

    Example procedures:

    Spaying
    This type of veterinary surgical procedures are done out of concern about the constantly increasing numbers of homeless pets that have to live in animal shelters, often without any chances for adoption. Spaying procedures offer a number of benefits, such as eliminating the risk of certain diseases (e.g. pyometra, or womb infection) and preventing problems with estrus (the heat), hormonal problems, and phantom pregnancies. Additionally, spaying protects female cats and dogs against mammary (or breast) tumors and reproductive organ tumors, which reduces the risk of having to go through the necessary treatment in the future


    Neutering (castration)
    Owners of male dogs and cats are likely to agree that it is not easy to keep their pet in check whenever the female dogs and cats in the neighborhood are in heat. In order to prevent pet homelessness and spare your pet form certain preventable diseases and yourself from having to pay for their treatment, veterinarians encourage neutering in pets. Neutering is a routine surgical procedure that has a number of benefits. Neutering male cats and dogs reduces aggression associated with high testosterone levels as well as prevents testicular cancer. Additionally, owners of neutered pets do not have to worry that their pet will run off after a female in heat.
