You can rely on Hillview Veterinary Clinic/Bed and Biscuit in Reynoldsburg, OH, for your pet surgery needs. We provide several surgical procedures for pets and follow strict protocols to ensure your pet's safety. While the idea of pet surgery can be worrying, we'll ensure your pet is properly cared for throughout the procedures.
Spay and Neuter Services
We believe that spaying and neutering are essential to quality pet care, which is why we provide these procedures at our animal hospital. When you have your pet spayed or neutered, it's more likely to lead a long and healthy life!
Spaying or neutering your pet can improve behavior and reduce the risk of severe health problems. When the testes are removed from male dogs and cats, it can prevent testicular cancer and curb the animal's breeding instinct, leading to better behavior. Removing ovaries from a female animal can prevent them from going into heat and reduce the risk of uterine infections.
While we recommend you have your pet spayed or neutered early in life, we also perform this surgery on older animals. We'll provide you with plenty of information ahead of the procedure, so you can prepare your pet correctly. In addition, we'll give you detailed aftercare instructions so you can continue to keep your pet healthy at home.
How to Prepare Your Pet for Surgery
Whether you're scheduling a spay, neuter, or another procedure, you'll meet with our veterinarian ahead of the surgery. We'll ask you questions during the appointment to better understand your pet's health. We'll also examine your pet to ensure they're healthy enough to undergo surgery.
Your veterinarian may order blood tests, so we can get a clearer picture of your pet's health. Bloodwork can help your veterinarian spot internal issues that may not be visible in a physical exam. We do everything we can to reduce the risks associated with surgery and keep your pet safe.
We'll also let you know what you can do to prepare your pet at home. Since you'll need to keep surgical incisions dry when your pet is healing, we may suggest you bathe or groom your pet before the procedure. If you have any questions or concerns, we'll do everything we can to address them and give you peace of mind.
