What is a Splenectomy?
A splenectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the spleen, a large organ located in the abdomen that is responsible for filtering blood, removing old or damaged blood cells, and producing antibodies to fight infections. This procedure may be recommended if your pet has a tumor, ruptured spleen, or other medical conditions affecting the spleen.
What is the Splenectomy Process Like?
The splenectomy process begins with a comprehensive examination and diagnostic tests, such as blood work and imaging, to determine the nature of your pet’s medical 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 weeks after surgery.
