What Is Rear Limb Surgery?
Rear limb surgery involves any type of surgery your pet may need to restore a rear limb. Rear limbs are sometimes referred to as hind legs. Rear limb surgery is a serious type of procedure that could greatly affect your pets' longevity and quality of life.
Why Would My Pet Need Rear Limb Surgery?
Your pets may be in need of rear limb surgery if their hind legs become injured or damaged somehow. An injury could result from an accident or from a car accident. Rear limb injuries are often seen in cases in which pets are struck by a car.
Other times, pets may need rear limb surgery because of a health condition that is worsening.
What Can I Expect during Rear Limb Surgery?
Rear limb surgery is very similar to other types of surgery. Your pet will most likely be sedated using general anesthesia for the procedure. This is done for both the safety of the animal and the staff. General anesthesia is perfectly safe to be used on most animals. Our team is well trained in using these types of medications safely with many different types of animals.
Following surgery, your pet will spend some time in a recovery area. In this area, the animal will be observed for any problems. If your pet is groggy or needs further observation, we may hold your pet overnight. This is often done for the safety of the animal and the pet owners.
Our veterinarian will give you thorough care instructions for your pet when you take your pet home. Your pet may need pain relievers during recovery. Your pet may also need to wear a cone to keep it from scratching or biting the affected area.
