Amputation is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of a limb, tail, or digit from your pet’s body. This procedure is often recommended when other treatment options have been exhausted or if the limb is causing your pet significant pain or discomfort. Common reasons for amputation include cancer, trauma, and infection.
At VIP Animal Hospital, we have the necessary equipment and expertise to perform amputations safely and effectively. Our veterinarians will thoroughly evaluate your pet’s condition and discuss all available treatment options with you before making a recommendation.
During the amputation procedure, your pet will be under anesthesia to ensure they are comfortable and pain-free. Our team will monitor your pet’s vital signs throughout the procedure and provide pain management medication to ensure a smooth and comfortable recovery.
After the procedure, our team will provide you with detailed post-operative care instructions to help your pet heal properly. This may include medication, bandage changes, and restricted activity. We will work closely with you to ensure your pet is comfortable and on the road to a full recovery.
We understand that amputation can be a difficult decision, but at VIP Animal Hospital, we are committed to providing compassionate care to your furry friend every step of the way. Our goal is to improve your pet’s quality of life and help them live their best life possible. If you have any questions or concerns about amputation, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
