Few of the surgeries performed at Jeeva pet hospital

Pyometra

Pyometra is often the result of hormonal changes in the reproductive tract. Following oestrus ( “heat” ) in the dog, progesterone levels remain elevated for 8-10 weeks and thicken the lining of the uterus in preparation for pregnancy. If pregnancy does not occur for several oestrus cycles, the lining continues to increase in thickness until cysts form within it.

The thickened, cystic lining secretes fluids that create an ideal environment in which bacteria can grow. Additionally, high progesterone levels inhibit the ability of the muscles in the wall of the uterus to contract. 

“In this case pet was operated for Pyometra, as shown the uterus & ovaries of the pet were removed.”

Enterotomy

Enterotomy is a surgical incision created in the intestines. If there is some sort of foreign body in the intestines, or a biopsy in needed, an enterotomy would be performed. Presenting signs of an intestinal obstruction vary, ranging from mild onset of frequent vomiting to chronic vomiting depending on the location, type, and size of the obstruction. Other signs can include decreased appetite or complete loss of appetite, lethargy, abdominal pain, and weight loss. There are a number of potential causes for vomiting & hence the possibility of a foreign body should inside the pet should always be considered.

Foreign Body Removal - Socks

Foreign bodies occur when pets consume items that will not readily pass through their gastrointestinal tract. These items may be strings, a pet’s or child’s toy, leashes, clothing, sticks, or any other item that fails to pass, including human food products such as bones or trash.

Surgical intervention is not always required with gastrointestinal foreign bodies. Occasionally, the item ingested is small and smooth enough to pass through the gastrointestinal tract without causing damage or becoming lodged.

“However in our case dog had swallowed a socks, we had removed it with a surgical incision.”

 

Foreign Body Removal-Maize Kernel

“In this case, the dog has swallowed a Maize Kernel and it was not digested. After a surgical intervention, the maize kernel was removed with a procedure which went for 5 hours.”

Cystolith - Bladder Stones

Bladder stones can form in dogs just like they do in humans. The stones can be described as rock-like collections of minerals that form in the urinary bladder. They may occur as a few large stones or as collections of multiple small stones. 

Some pets with bladder stones show no signs of any kind and the stones are discovered incidentally but there are some changes that might promote a search for stones. Bloody urine, straining to urinate or an increase in the frequency of urination are the main signs : Blood in the urine (Haematuria), Straining to urinate (Dysuria) and Increased frequency to urinate.

A blocked bladder can also end in rupture of the bladder and urine entering the abdominal cavity. It is therefore imperative that the pet be seen as soon as possible if there is a suspicion.
