Veterinary surgeons throughout the world are used to performing serious surgical procedures almost every day of their medical career. Some procedures are common in most surgeries and each surgery requires only the top quality equipment. The vet’s experience with the tools he is using for the surgery, often contributes a lot towards his confidence in the operation room, which is mandatory for such a delicate task. Trephine, disposable blades and other surgical grade equipment are essential for doctors and vets. Doctors and vets these days always prefer to have the most latest technological solutions at their disposal, to save lives as well as to make their job much easier and hassle free.
The pet is always lucky when going through a major surgery as the veterinary surgeon only uses perfect equipment for their tasks.
Some of the most common conditions that require a vet to conduct surgery include injuries as result of accidents or some medical conditions that cause softening of bones or muscles in animals.
Disorders in the animal’s digestive system, including vomiting and diarrhea are another very common problem that more than often cannot be treated through medication and hence demands immediate surgery. Heart disorders also take a lot of animals to the operation rooms. Though, like humans, animals also suffer from an array of complicated heart diseases, but the most common heart diseases in animals are murmurs or heart failure. As with heart diseases in animals, hormonal diseases are also very
common in animals. Though hormonal diseases are usually not considered a major cause of surgery, yet hormone disorders like diabetes or an overactive thyroid often result in huge medical complications that cannot be treated through medication and surgery becomes the only resort to save the life of the animal. As discussed earlier, diseases that cause internal weakness of the animal’s body parts is a major cause whey pets undergo surgery. Arthritis is one such deadly disease found very commonly in bigger pets. Leg, hip or shoulder problems from arthritis or a dislocated hip can cause severe complications in the animal and the only cure remains surgery.sao
A number of vets usually conduct surgeries in the early afternoons so as to monitor the progress of the animal during the rest of the day. Sometimes investigative surgery like X-Rays reveals to the vet some important information that they may use to decide a plan for their concluding surgery. More than often, to save them from pain and trauma, pets may also be required to undergo anesthesia for diagnosis of certain very complex and delicate medical problems. The anesthesia stage is a very complicated one as an over dose of anesthesia can result in the pet going to a coma or even death. Simple issues are more than often fixed by the vet immediately while serious conditions may require them to consult with
the pet’s owner before performing an operation. Unfortunately, complicated pet illnesses cannot easily be fixed using medicines, or surgery.
