Neutering of animals at a young age is probably the most frequent surgery performed by the veterinarian. This procedure allows to limit animal overpopulation and to avoid health problems in our four-legged friends. This surgery is always done under complete anesthesia, may it be a male or a female, a dog, a cat or a rabbit.
Anesthesia and Surgery
Several other reasons may require sedation or anesthesia. Whether to make a further examination in an animal in pain or aggressive (wound care, or X-rays for example), for a surgical procedure (eg excision of a mass), or for a specific or uncomfortable treatment for the anima (placing a splint), the majority of those intervention can be made here, at the Ste-Rose Veterinary Hospital. Veterinarians will recommend the appropriate procedure. We use protocols and products at the cutting edge of technology to ensure the safety and health of your pet, as well as its fast recovery.
The unique ability of a laser to remove tissues is to place it apart from another surgical tool. It can be used to precisely remove tissue and brings many benefits, such as reduced bleeding, swelling, and post-operative pain. Therefore, recovery is faster and the patient can resume normal activities more quickly. Applications range from routine surgeries (neutering and declawing) the more specialized surgeries (such as correction of entropion or stenosis of the nostrils). Ask our team for more information on this technology.
Our pets are now living longer and older. This is why dental care is more important than ever. Of course, safe teeth scaling in a dog or cat will not be as easy as it sounds. Therefore, teeth cleaning should always be done under general anesthesia. We are pleased to offer full dentistry service for cats and dogs, including teeth scaling and polishing or tooth extractions if the condition requires it. This way, your pet will have better breath and fewer health problems in short or longer terms.
