Compassionate Amputation Surgery for Pets
At Ark Animal Hospital, we offer compassionate and skilled amputation surgery for pets when it is deemed necessary for their well-being. Here are some common reasons for pet amputations:
1. Cancer Treatment: Amputation may be recommended as part of a comprehensive cancer treatment plan to remove tumors affecting limbs or other areas. It can help prevent the spread of cancer and alleviate pain associated with tumor growth.
2. Traumatic Injuries: In cases of severe limb injuries or fractures that cannot be repaired or cause chronic pain, amputation may be necessary to relieve discomfort and prevent further complications.
3. Congenital Deformities: Pets born with limb deformities or abnormalities that affect their mobility and quality of life may benefit from amputation to enhance their mobility and overall well-being.
4. Chronic Infections or Injuries: When chronic infections, non-healing wounds, or severe tissue damage affect a limb, amputation may be the most effective solution to prevent further infection and relieve pain.
