Pet Surgery

Types of Pet Surgeries

Our vet team does some routine procedures, such as spaying and neutering. A veterinarian on our veterinary team can examine your pet, diagnose illnesses or injuries, and determine if surgery might be a treatment option.

When Your Pet Might Need Surgery

If you want to have your pet spayed or neutered to stop him or her from reproducing, he or she will need to undergo surgery. In other situations, surgery might be needed to repair an injury. For example, a pet who has a fracture or soft tissue injury from being in an accident might need surgery in order to properly heal. Sometimes, an underlying illness or condition might require surgery.

If your pet is experiencing pain and other symptoms, we can run tests to make a diagnosis and recommend treatment, which might include surgery.

What to Expect from Pet Surgery

Simple procedures, such as spaying and neutering, are done in a short period of time. Pets can often go home the same day. With more complex procedures, pets might need to be observed overnight.

No matter what type of surgery your pet is having, always follow the instructions provided beforehand. You might be asked to avoid feeding your pet within a certain time frame prior to surgery. You might also need to stop giving your pet his usual medication the day of surgery. You’ll also receive instructions on post-operative care for your pet. This might include when to bring your pet in for a follow-up visit, signs of infection to watch for, and how to keep the incision site clean.
