Exploratory Pet Surgery at Central Animal Hospital in Scarsdale

Exploratory Pet Surgery at Central Animal Hospital in Scarsdale

There may be times when your four-legged companion may need pet surgery at Central Animal Hospital in Scarsdale. Without a doubt, lethargic behavior, vomiting and diarrhea are signs that you may need to bring your pet in for an evaluation. There’s symptoms may be indications of tumors, cancer or the ingestion of a foreign object. Even though our protocol is to use blood tests and X-rays, these diagnostic methods may not provide the definitive problem. Exploratory surgery may be needed to get to the underlying problem causing your pet’s symptoms, so we can proceed with the appropriate treatment.

Exploratory surgery can be used for foreign body removal and for biopsies of masses or tumors. The type of surgery may be an open laparotomy or performed using a laparoscopy. If a mass is malignant, more surgery and other treatment for your pet may be required. Whenever pets undergo exploratory surgery at our Scarsdale animal hospital, pet owners can trust that they are in good hands. Your pet will be anesthetized and carefully monitored with EGK, pulse oximeter and other state-of-the-art equipment. After the exploratory surgery, we’ll release your pet when it’s safe and provide you with clear instructions on aftercare for when you take your pet back home again. It’s important that your pet is kept in a quiet place with minimal activity.
