Operations and minor surgical procedures are performed in a specially adapted operating theatre, which ensures sterile conditions and is equipped with modern equipment that allows complete patient monitoring during anaesthesia.
During anaesthesia, a qualified anaesthesiologist watches over your pet’s sleep.
You can read more about this procedure in the “Anaesthesiology” tab.
Castration and sterilization.
These are elective surgeries, and the veterinarian always determines the optimal date.
It is best to castrate and sterilize the animal after the 4th month of life because, from that moment, sex hormones do not affect the growth and development of the organism.
The exceptions are dogs of large and giant breeds, whose growth ends around the 18th – 24th month of life.
In female animals, we remove the uterus and the ovaries (ovariohysterectomy) during the procedure.
In male animals, during castration, it is necessary to remove both testicles (orchidectomy).
Preparation for the planned procedure.
Before anaesthesia, it is advisable to perform blood tests and a cardiological examination with echocardiography.
A dog/cat should be fasted for about 6-8 hours. The exception is procedures within the gastrointestinal tract, where fasting is necessary for about 10-12 hours (unless your veterinarian advises otherwise).
Not all animal species require dietary preparation.
In rabbits, guinea pigs or other exotic animals, the procedure will be determined individually, considering the physiology of those animals.
