Pet Surgery

If you have concerns about an upcoming animal surgery, it’s smart to speak with a veterinarian near you on our veterinary team. We at The Village Vet in Baltimore, MD, are here to help. 


Animal Surgery

Just like with humans, there are many different veterinary surgeries. Here are a few:

Pet Dental Surgery: Oral health is crucial for pets. Sometimes pet dental surgery is required to remove a tooth, address an infection, or resolve another problem.

Spay and Neuter: When it comes to most common surgeries, spay and neuter rank at the top. Getting your pet fixed can help control animal populations, improve disposition, and prevent some health issues.

Injury Repair: If your pet has suffered a fracture or soft tissue injury, surgery may be needed.

What to Do Before the Procedure/Surgery

It’s smart to make sure your pet is clean before surgery. This can make the process easier and may reduce the risk of complications, like infections. Also, you’ll likely need to stop feeding your pet several hours before surgery. You’ll also need to withhold water. The exact hours needed can vary, so make sure you speak with a veterinarian on our veterinary team.

Post-Surgery Care for Pets

Your pet is going to be groggy and lethargic after surgery. You’ll want to let him rest in a secluded place and watch for signs of an infection. Make sure you also work with the veterinarian to develop a recovery plan.
