There is a vast array of procedures that can be carried out on animals depending on the complications they develop. The surgical procedures include; tumor and lump removals, intestinal obstructions, caesareans, exploratory surgery and desexing among many others. Surgical areas are kept sterile and the veterinary physician in charge wears a surgical gown, hat, and protection; much like what is done in theatres when the patient is human. There are nurses who help with the procedures and watch the patient’s progress of the surgery through to healing.
