Dr. Pasternak knows general and emergency surgeries like Spleen removals, mass or growth removals, foreign objects can be surgically removed, and most Cancer surgeries. He will examine the patient to determine if orthopedic surgery is required or not, and working with you, he’ll tell you the best method to correct the problem with your companion.
If your companion suffers from an accident or trauma, take him right away to see Dr. Pasternak for an immediate examination. Even if your pet doesn’t display any outward signs of physical harm, Dr. Pasternak can help to determine whether he has suffered any internal injuries, shock, or other damage.
If your companion has a torn ligament or a broken bone, Dr. Pasternak will advise the owner if he can perform any procedure adequately and efficiently and depending on the injury if he can do it. If he is not able to operate on your companion, he will give you other options and/or recommendations to other veterinary specialists who will be able to help.
Dr. Pasternak does Acupuncture and will use Western and Eastern treatments to help with any pain your companion has and will try to reduce the pain level naturally with acupuncture and herbs. When your companion recovers, he may appear to have recovered to the point where he can walk, run, or jump, allowing him to do so before his recovery is complete could lead to complications, in so cases. Keep him quiet and not too active too soon, so he can heal from his injury.
If you have questions about a procedure and/or cost involved with any surgery for your companion, please don’t hesitate to speak with Dr. Pasternak when you come in for the initial examination with your companion.
