What is Prolapse?
Prolapse is a condition that occurs when the inner lining of the urethra, rectum, or vagina protrudes outside the body. This can happen due to a variety of reasons, such as chronic constipation, difficult birthing, or age-related weakening of the tissues that support these organs. Prolapse can cause discomfort, pain, and difficulty urinating or defecating.
What is Prolapse Repair?
Prolapse repair is a surgical procedure that involves repositioning the prolapsed organ back into its proper position and securing it in place to prevent recurrence. This procedure may be recommended if other treatments, such as medication or changes in diet, have been ineffective.
What is the Prolapse Repair Process Like?
The prolapse repair process begins with a comprehensive examination to determine the extent of the condition and ensure that your pet is healthy enough for surgery. If surgery is recommended, our experienced veterinarians will perform the procedure using advanced techniques and equipment to minimize pain, reduce the risk of complications, and ensure a speedy recovery.
After the procedure, we will provide you with detailed instructions for post-operative care, including pain management and monitoring for any signs of complications. In most cases, pets can return to their normal activities within a few days to a week after surgery.
