There are several different types of surgery we perform on animals here at White Oaks Veterinary Clinic.
Spaying/Neutering in Edmond
These are basic services any good vet in Edmond should offer. Unless you are a professional breeder, you should get your pet spayed or neutered at the first possible opportunity. This cuts down on the number of unwanted pets in the world, which means less suffering for the animals. In most cases, spaying and neutering can be done on dogs and cats as young as six months old, and sometimes younger. With other small pets, ask your veterinarian for the earliest appropriate age for this procedure. If you get your pet as an adult and they are not spayed or neutered yet, get it done as soon as you can make an appointment.
Spaying is done on female animals, and involves a slightly more invasive surgery than neutering. Your pet will most likely need to stay overnight at the clinic, and will have stitches for a week or so after the procedure. Neutering is usually a day surgery with no stitches, and your pet will only be sore for a few days afterward in the area in which the neutering procedure was done.
Teeth Brushing and Other Types of Oral Surgery
Some animals can have their teeth brushed at home, or at a vet’s office with no incident. Others, especially cats, are not so cooperative, unless they have been raised from babyhood to be used to it. Animals of any size that put up a fuss when they need to have their teeth brushed are put under general anesthesia at the veterinarian’s office to have this done, which is why it is considered surgery. It is important to an animal’s overall health to have good oral health, so getting their teeth brushed regularly, at least annually, is a good part of responsible pet care. If other oral surgery procedures are needed for your pet, such as tooth extractions, we can do that here, too.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy helps your pet heal from injuries sooner. A minimally invasive procedure, stem cell therapy involves taking a small amount of fat from your pet, extracting and processing cells from it to be powerfully regenerative, and then re-introducing those healing cells to your pet through an IV. Your pet is sedated the whole time, and the procedure is less invasive than spaying, so it is completely safe.
