Why Does My Pet Need Oral Surgery?
There are many potential reasons why your pet might need oral surgery. For example, they may need oral surgery to remove growths, repair oral or dental defects, and repair a jaw fracture.
Some oral tumors have no known cause. If oral tumors are detected early, surgical removal may be an option and result in a cure. Jaw fractures from trauma or disease also often require oral surgery to return the dog to a pain-free happy life.
Is Oral Surgery Safe for My Dog?
Anesthesia is necessary for oral surgery. This allows the surgeon to remove the tumor or repair the fractured jaw while your dog is immobilized and out of pain. Before anesthesia is delivered, laboratory tests are performed to determine the safest anesthetic protocol for your pet and the specific procedure. Your pet will be closely monitored during and after the procedure.
