Our operating room is equipped with modern anesthesia equipment. In addition, our veterinarians have experience and we can practice many operations ourselves at the practice.
Before the operations, we conduct a clinical examination of your animal. It is examined whether your pet has an increased risk or health problems for anesthesia. In case of doubt, the clinical examination is supplemented with further tests such as blood tests or an ultrasound of the heart. If your animal has an increased risk, we will first discuss this with you.
For senior animals (dog/cat 7+) we recommend a blood test prior to surgery. The functioning of the organs such as the liver and kidneys and the sugar level in the blood are then examined. This may be important for the type and amount of anesthesia that can be given. During the operation, we always take into account that no animal is the same, and therefore the operation and recovery do not always proceed in the same way.
For highly specialized operations, we work together with the Medical Center for Animals.
Because our pets are getting older, we are increasingly encountering tumors in our clinic. Knowledge in the field of cancer is becoming more and more extensive, which means that we can also deal with it better. If you are unsure about lumps in your pet, you can always visit us by appointment to have us look at it. Tumors do not necessarily have to be malignant, additional research is usually required to determine this.
We look at the most suitable method for each situation to see whether the tumor is malignant or not. After making the diagnosis, we can start the treatment. Tumors are usually treated by removing the ‘lump’ or process. For this, your pet will be under anesthesia and our vet will sterilely cut away the tumor along with some healthy tissue. We then send the excised tissue to a laboratory, where it is examined whether the entire tumor has been removed. Call or visit us for more information.
