Spinal Surgery in Leesburg, VA
Spinal surgery is a specialized surgical procedure that is used to treat various conditions that affect the spine, such as herniated discs, spinal fractures, tumors, and spinal cord injuries. At North Oatlands Animal Hospital & Reproductive Center, our experienced veterinary surgeons utilize the latest techniques and technology to perform spinal surgery on pets.
During the spinal surgery, your pet will be placed under general anesthesia to ensure that they are comfortable and pain-free throughout the procedure. The surgery itself may involve removing or repairing damaged tissue, stabilizing the spine with plates and screws, or removing a portion of the vertebrae to alleviate pressure on the spinal cord.
After Surgery Care
After spinal surgery, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by our veterinary team. This may include administering medication, limiting your pet's activity, and providing a comfortable and quiet recovery space. You should monitor your pet closely for any signs of discomfort or complications, such as difficulty walking or standing, loss of appetite, or excessive lethargy.
Physical therapy may also be recommended to help your pet regain mobility and strength after the surgery. Our veterinary team can provide guidance on appropriate exercises and techniques to assist with your pet's recovery.
At North Oatlands Animal Hospital & Reproductive Center, we are committed to providing exceptional care for pets undergoing spinal surgery. Our experienced veterinarians and support staff are available to answer any questions you may have about the procedure and aftercare.
