St. Francis Hospital for Animals Offers Pet Surgery
Occasionally, pets sustain injuries or develop illnesses that require surgery to restore their health and mobility. When these incidents occur, you want experienced veterinary care with a caring team that will consider your pet’s individual needs. At St. Francis Hospital for Animals in Oakdale, NY, we offer a number of surgical procedures to help our patients stay active and healthy.
Spay & Neuter Surgery
Spaying or neutering is recommended for all pets not kept for breeding purposes. These procedures can prevent diseases of the reproductive organs and prevents the birth of unwanted offspring. Spay and neuter procedures are safe and healing generally occurs without incident. A period of resting and standard wound care is all that’s needed following the procedure, and your pet will be back to his normal activities in a short time.
Some animals may require surgery on the gums, teeth, or mouth tissue to correct problems and allow normal feeding. Retained, broken, or decayed teeth can be extracted safely while your pet is under anesthesia. We can provide experienced, compassionate care during and after these procedures.
We also do general surgery to correct problems of the eyes and ears, as well as abdominal procedures to repair blockages or remove tumors. Severe wounds may require surgery to facilitate healing. Your Oakdale vet will always discuss treatment options with you, to determine the right care for your pet.
Dogs sometimes need orthopedic surgery to repair cruciate ligament tears, luxating patella problems, or other issues. Some breeds of dog are susceptible to elbow dysplasia and hip dysplasia, which may require surgical correction. These surgeries can help to relieve pain and restore normal movement for animals. Fractures of the bones can also be repaired, in both dogs and cats. Recovery from orthopedic procedures generally requires a period of rest, gentle exercise, and physical therapy.
