Top Veterinarian in Trumbull
Trumbull Animal Hospital is one of the leading veterinary practices in the area. We can take care of any veterinary needs that your dog or cat may have. As a full-service animal hospital, we often perform pet surgery, including tumor removal surgeries. Our staff has a great deal of experience with these procedures, so you can rest assured that your pet is in the best of hands at our practice. Read on to learn more about our pet surgery process.
The first step of the process is a thorough exam. This will help your veterinarian determine whether your pet's tumor is benign or cancerous. During this exam the veterinarian will determine exactly how to perform the procedure. After the exam, you will be able to schedule your pet's tumor removal surgery.
Tumor Removal Surgery
The tumor removal surgery itself will vary depending on your pet and the type of tumor he has. If they have a large tumor that is close to large blood vessels or vital organs, the surgery may take longer. If the tumor is small and easily accessible, the surgery may end up being a fairly minor procedure.
Recovery from Pet Surgery
Just as the surgery itself varies widely, so does the recovery process. Most pets who have a tumor removed can go home the same day, but some pets will need to stay overnight for observation. Your veterinarian should be able to give you a good idea of whether or not the procedure will be out-patient when you schedule the surgery. They will make the final determination after the surgery. Your pet will get sutures, and you will need to come back soon to have these sutures removed and so your veterinarian can ensure that your dog or cat is healing well.
