Surgery


Your pet is an important part of your family, and when he or she is ill, you want the best medical care available.

Spay & Neuter


Surgery includes routine as well as unexpected procedures. Spaying and Neutering your pet can prevent unwanted litters and avoid multiple illnesses related to reproductive systems such as pyometra (infection of the uterus), mammary cancer, dystocia, perineal hernia, urethral prolapse, testicular cancer – all of which can be deadly.

Our experienced team of doctors and staff make it their number one priority to focus on pain management, patient safety, and we use the most current surgical practices to ensure your pet receives the best veterinary care. Our team will be working with you before, during, and after surgery to address any questions or concerns you may have about the surgical procedure, anesthesia, or postoperative care.


Deworming

Puppies and kittens should be dewormed at least twice 2 to 3 weeks apart, as a way to prevent infestation of parasites such as roundworms.

Fecal examinations

It is recommended to examine your pet’s feces annually to ensure no new parasitic infections have been acquired.

Even if dewormer was administered a fecal examination is recommended to ensure the appropriate medication was used, there are numerous infectious organisms that can be identified in the feces that require different medications to be cleared. Not all parasites are visible by eye and not all parasitic infestations necessarily cause diarrhea.

West Russell Animal Hospital requires a negative fecal examination within the past year to permit boarding.

Flea and tick prevention

All dogs and cats should be on year-round ectoparasite control. Fleas and ticks can carry diseases that affect humans and animals and it is far easier to prevent the establishment of a flea infestation than to treat and clear the home environment.

Heartworm prevention

All cats and dogs should be on year-round heartworm prevention. Heartworm can be life-threatening and once infected the protocol for treatment requires multiple intramuscular injections and oral medications. Prior to starting preventative medication a negative heartworm antigen test is required.
