There are various pre-anesthetic sedation that are utilized, depending on the dog’s or cat’s size and the veterinarian’s preference. After the dog is relaxed general anesthesia will be applied. This, too, can be in various forms. In this case, we will discuss using an endotracheal tube, which is regulated throughout the procedure so that work can be done painlessly and still have the patient at a safe level of anesthesia.

Tendon repair is done to bring back normal movement after a tendon injury. Tendon injury may occur anywhere in the body where there are tendons. If there is not enough healthy tendon to reconnect, the surgeon may perform a tendon graft. This is when a piece of tendon from another part of the body is used. It may be from the foot, toe, or other body part. Sometimes the tendon must be reconnected to the surrounding tissue.
