We offer cystotomy procedures for pets requiring surgical intervention for bladder issues. A cystotomy is a surgical procedure involving the opening of the bladder to remove bladder stones, address bladder tumors, or treat other conditions affecting the bladder. Before the cystotomy, our veterinary team conducts a thorough evaluation of your pet's condition, which may include physical examination, imaging tests such as ultrasound, and urine analysis to determine the underlying cause of the bladder problem. During the cystotomy procedure, your pet will be placed under anesthesia to ensure their comfort and safety. The surgeon will make an incision in the abdominal wall to access the bladder. The bladder is carefully opened, allowing the surgeon to remove bladder stones, address tumors, or perform other necessary treatments. The bladder is then closed with sutures, and the abdominal incision is also closed. After the cystotomy, our caring staff provides post-operative care and monitoring to ensure your pet's comfort and promote healing. Pain management and antibiotics may be prescribed as needed. Cystotomy procedures at Snowden Animal Hospital are performed with precision and care, aiming to alleviate your pet's bladder issues and improve their quality of life. We prioritize the well-being of your furry friend and strive to provide compassionate and comprehensive veterinary care.
