Spay Surgery for Cats
Spaying your female pet is one of the best ways to help unwanted pregnancies, decreasing unwanted pets and also helping to dramatically reduce the development of Breast and Uterine Cancer.
Before your pet can be admitted into our hospital, several wellness aspects must be ensured. We require all cats be current on vaccinations administered by a licensed veterinarian for Rabies and Distemper, they will also need to have a negative Fecal Floatation Exam performed in the past 12 months. A Physical Exam will be performed prior to surgery and must scheduled prior to surgery prior to surgery for new clients and their pets. We require Presurgical Blood Screening on all anesthesia patients to ensure proper functioning of Liver, Kidney, Protein, and Blood Sugar values, in addition to checking for Anemia and Platelets (clotting).
Having confidence and knowledge in all of the above allows our Doctors to ensure a safer anesthetic procedure and can affect the type or amount of anesthetic used.
After your pet is examined and the presurgical blood screening has been reviewed and evaluated she will receive an Inhalant Anesthesia allowing her for a comfortable surgery and a quick easy recovery.
An intravenous catheter will be placed prior to surgery giving the Doctor and Technicians access for injections and also provides a life saving time advantage in the event of an emergency under anesthesia. Intravenous fluids are also delivered to maintain blood pressure and ensure a quicker recovery.
Spaying your pet involves removal of the ovaries and uterus through a small abdominal incision. Your pet is placed under general anesthesia in a sterile operating room with body temperature heating support to prevent hypothermia and monitoring equipment to check vital body functions. Recovery occurs in a well supervised area and all manner is used to ensure comfortable recovery.
We feel the above will help you as a pet owner understand the different aspects in what is involved in spaying your pet. Even though considered routine and offered at highly discounted rates, many of the items we require for safety and comfort are not included in many low cost services, or are considered optional and are introduced as additional expenses. Spaying your pet is a surgical procedure requiring skill, involves anesthesia – which has obvious inherent risks including death and during recovery, and pain – which needs to be managed after the surgery is complete. We feel what we have outlined offers the best protection and comfort from the above parameters at a reasonable fee.
