The process of preparing the pets for surgery at the Crossroads Animal Clinic are aimed at making the organs supple and ray for post surgical healing. The general practices involve diagnosis of the pets for blood pressure, muscle condition, bone condition etc. if the experts find any abnormalities in any of these parameters, the y naturally avoid or postpone the surgery. In such circumstances the pets are given the appropriate treatment procedures before they can be tested again for the preparedness to surgery. The flow of blood through the organ in which the surgery is supposed to be performed is tested. If the flow is normal and the blood count is within the normal range, the specialists say “yes” to the surgeons to go ahead.
Crossroads Animal Clinic –Pre Surgical Conditioning
- Tissue Conditioning: – The procedure for tissue conditioning in the pets prior to the surgical procedures is an important phase. Here the specialist examines the degree of vascularization which might occur during the surgery. Optimization of this parameter can help in the faster healing of surgical wounds. This is especially required when the surgery involves the application of dissection of organs. Though the modern surgical techniques at the Crossroads Animal Clinic stress on the usage of scalpel blades, the probability of blood loss could be relatively higher unless the degree of vascularization is optimized. In such cases the specialists prepare the tissues for faster regrouping after the completion of surgical procedures. In addition the surgeons also take maximum care to cause the least amount of damages to the sensitive tissues in the organ that is subject to the surgery. The conditioning of the tissue can also be done during the surgical procedures. This is called active flushing of the tissues. By following this specific procedure the surgeon avoid the death of tissues and cells.
- Blood Supply: – The surgical hall is equipped with sufficient blood supplies before the start of the surgical procedures. This will ensure replacement of lost blood in real time. At the same time the pet specialists at the Crossroads Animal Clinic take all the preventive measures to enhance the defense mechanism of the organ for damage repair mechanism within the organs.
- Anti Infection: – The tissues and ligaments within the muscles and bones have to be prepared to fight off any probability of infections in the post surgical period. This is very important for preserving the health of the pets in the post surgical period. This procedure at the Crossroads Animal Clinic is called the ASEPTIC preparation. The surgeons also use many types of advanced techniques like the Hemostasis for reducing the volume of infections.
- Tissue Tension: – The procedures for reducing the tension within the tissues can be achieved with the help of local anesthesia. The other way is to close the regions of the subcutis and the cutis regions. This will effectively avoid the development of tension within the external and internal areas of the tissues during surgery.
