Veterinaries being associated with diagnostic treatment of animals have to ensure special care while handling pets and wild animals. The procedures fall into three categories orthopedics, soft tissue surgery and neurosurgery. Such procedures are much complex and are performed with sophisticated anesthesia techniques. Anesthesia in animals is somewhat similar to human anesthesia, but there are some unique differences. Local anesthesia is primarily given for wound closure and removal of small tumors while sedation is used for more complex procedures. In case of major surgeries, general anesthesia works well. Unlike dogs and cats, horses and other animals vary in anesthesia levels and eligibility. Hence, the common veterinary surgeries are elective procedures, sterilization surgery, controversial elective animal procedures, dental surgery, surgical oncology, ophthalmic surgery and orthopedic surgery.
The surgical instruments used for such procedures are built for specialized scenarios. There are different classes of surgical instruments used for different purpose. An important relative difference related to surgical instruments is the level of bodily disruption or harm to tissues which may cause by the usage of a particular instrument. Jargons pertaining to these issues are termed as atraumatic and minimally invasive. The minimally invasive systems have become a significant development in surgery.
The major driving factors for veterinary surgical instruments are growing animal healthcare expenditure, rising pet adoption, rising number of pet adoption, growing number of veterinary practitioners, rising income levels in developed regions and growing demand for pet insurance.
