Surgery is often the most effective way to treat serious injuries and disorders, and Hale Ola Pet Hospital is proud to offer surgical expertise in state-of-the-art facilities.
Our hospital provides surgical services ranging from standard spaying and neutering to soft tissue procedures. We perform a physical exam and pre-anesthetic testing before surgery, monitor your pet during surgery, and provide appropriate pain medication to keep your pet comfortable during recovery.
Our veterinary team will walk you through the entire process, giving you the information you need to make informed decisions regarding your pet’s treatment options. We understand surgery is a stressful time for any owner, and we’re available every step of the way to answer questions and put your mind at ease.
Spaying (ovariohysterectomy) is a common surgical procedure performed on female cats and dogs and involves removing the patient’s uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes, rendering the animal incapable of reproduction. We recommend spaying your pet at 6 months, ideally before the patient’s first heat.
- Prevents unwanted pregnancies
- Eliminates the risk of ovarian and uterine tumors
- Remove the possibility of uterine infections
Neutering is performed on male cats and dogs. This process castrates the animal, removing their testicles and making them unable to impregnate females. Neutering is advised when your pet is 6 months old but can be performed on older animals as well.
- Placates the animal, reducing aggressive behavior and decreasing dominant tendencies
- Reduces roaming and spraying (territory marking)
- Eliminates the risk of testicular and prostate tumors
