If our veterinarians feel that your pet should undergo anesthesia for their medical or dental procedure, we’ll let you know right away. In laymen’s terms, anesthesia helps to control your pet’s level of consciousness so that they don’t feel pain during the veterinary procedure. Prior to receiving any anesthesia, our veterinarians will performs a thorough physical examination of of your pet and will review your pet’s medical history. Below is a list of some of the most popular veterinary procedures we perform on pets in the Los Angeles area.
Aspiration pneumonia, also known as inhalation, is a condition in which gastrointestinal contents have been inhaled into your dog’s’ lungs. This often results in secondary inflammation and infection of the lung, which can cause difficulty breathing. Clinical signs of aspiration pneumonia can include not eating, coughing, lethargy, weakness, and fever. If you feel your dog may be suffering from this serious condition, contact 911 VETS® right away.
A biopsy is a surgical procedure in which a tissue sample is removed from your pet’s body and examined under a special microscope. In some veterinary cases, an entire growth may be removed or examined to help your veterinarian determine if your pet is at risk of cancerous cells or tissue.
Bone Marrow Aspirate
If our veterinarians feel they could gain valuable information about your pet’s health from a sample of their bone marrow, they may recommend a bone marrow aspiration for your cat or dog. Bone marrow is a soft material that is found in the central core of many of your pet’s bones and is a vital component of the production of blood cells in your pet.
Abdominocentesis is a medical procedure that will reveal if fluid is present within your pet’s abdomen. During an abdominocentesis procedure, our veterinarian will remove fluid from your pet’s abdomen using a needle to determine the root cause of your pet’s underlying illness. In most dogs, abdominal fluid can develop in association with liver disease, heart failure, cancer or even ruptured tumors. If you feel your dog is having difficulty breathing, contact 911 VETS® today.
