Intestinal surgery in the dog and cat: Part 2
Intestinal disorders requiring surgical intervention are commonly encountered in small animal practice. A thorough understanding of these disorders and their appropriate management is essential in order to optimise patient outcome. Part 1 of this article previously reviewed intestinal anatomy and healing, common surgical intestinal disorders and the diagnostic imaging of these patients. Part 2 will now provide an overview of the surgical techniques employed to manage the common surgical intestinal disorders in dogs and cats. Pre- and post-operative considerations for patients undergoing intestinal surgery and the potential complications that may be encountered will also be discussed.
