Our pets are so much like us in so many ways -- including, unfortunately, the occasional need to to undergo surgery. If your pet has an injury or health condition that calls for surgical intervention, you may feel understandably concerned or upset. But you can rest a lot easier when you can rely on the skill, expertise and TLC of Trinity Pet Hospital. Our Laguna Hills veterinarian, Dr. Kerolos, has years of experience providing pets with many different kinds of surgery, from routine sexual sterilization to complex orthopedic reconstruction.
Surgery for pets can range from standard preventative care measures to emergency procedures that may save an animal's life -- and your pet could need any of these surgeries at any given point in his life. That's why Trinity Pet Hospital offers such a wide range of surgical services to cover as many different situations as possible. Examples include:
Spay and neuter surgery - Spaying and neutering procedures are both considered routine outpatient procedures in the veterinary world, but the benefits they bestow are definitely noteworthy. Spay surgery to remove the female reproductive organs and neuter surgery to remove the male testes not only combat pet overpopulation by preventing pregnancy, but they also remove your pet's risk for deadly reproductive cancers.
Tumor removal and biopsy - Skin tumors or other masses can be removed quickly and easily by our Laguna Hills veterinarian. We then biopsy the mass to see whether additional treatment may be necessary.
Emergency surgery - Dr. Kerolos can perform internal surgery to deal with organ dysfunction, internal injuries, urinary blockages, twisted digestive organs, difficult labor and other conditions that may threaten your pet's well being. We're also the veterinary clinic to turn to for closure of deep lacerations, fracture repair and other emergency situations.
Orthopedic surgery - Joint damage or chronic joint pain can severely limit your pet's mobility and quality of life. If conservative treatment methods won't do the job, we may recommend orthopedic surgery to help your pet feel and move better. For example, we can perform reconstructive surgery on a knee with ligament damage, fuse arthritic joints to stop bone-on-bone friction, and modify or replace hip joints afflicted with dysplasia.
When you bring your pet in for surgery at Trinity Pet Hospital, you're getting more than a procedure -- you're getting compassionate assistance and counseling for all stages of your pet's treatment and recovery. Our Laguna Hills veterinarian will advise you as to which surgical technique makes the most sense for your pet's needs and what pre-surgery preparations you might need to observe. Following surgery, we will provide you with the necessary prescriptions for medication and counseling on how to watch for wound infection or other possible complications. We will also follow up with your pet to make sure he's recuperating nicely. That's the kind of reassurance every pet owner wants -- and we're happy to be there for you.
