Exploratory

     Exploratory surgery is an important diagnostic and therapeutic tool in the veterinary field. Sometimes radio-graphs, blood work, and other tests can be inconclusive in helping to diagnose what is wrong with your pet. It may be of benefit to remove some tissue from an organ(s) and send them in for a biopsy. Exploratory surgery can also be used to remove a foreign object (such as a bouncy ball, socks, pantyhose, stuffing, etc.)  or a tumor from your pet’s abdomen. 

     After your pet has exploratory surgery it is important to keep them calm for a couple of weeks. It is also important to keep the incision site clean and dry. Which also means try to keep your pet from licking the incision site. Other aftercare instructions may vary for the type of surgery your pet has had.  If you have any questions about exploratory surgery please call us 816-524-7200!
