Does Your Pet Need Surgery? We Can Help

Just like people, many pets require surgery at some point during their lives. No matter what type of surgery your pet requires, the Petsveterinarians at Skeet Club Veterinary Hospital and Total Care Veterinary Hospital in High Point, NC, offer quality, compassionate care.

 

Why do pets need surgery?

Spaying and neutering are among the most common types of surgery for pets. Spaying (for females) and neutering (for males) ensures that pets can't reproduce, eliminates the risks of uterine and testicular cancer in males, and lowers the risk of breast cancer in females.

Other than spaying and neutering, tooth extractions, skin abscesses, and benign skin masses are the top three reasons both cats and dogs required surgery. Surgery may also be needed if your dog develops bloat, a potentially deadly condition that causes the stomach to twist and fill with gas.

Other reasons that your pet may need surgery include bladder stone removal, repair of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), treatment for hip dysplasia, uterine infections in unspayed females, fracture repair, or cancer treatment.

Your pet's veterinarian also offers emergency surgical services should your pet swallow a foreign object, be hit by a car, or suffer injuries from an animal attack.

 

Is surgery painful?

Your pet will be anesthetized or sedated during surgery to ensure that pain is not an issue. Although pain can be a problem following surgery, your dog, cat, or small animal will receive pain medication to ensure that they remain comfortable throughout the entire stay. After surgery, your pet will spend some time in the veterinary hospital's recovery area before being released.

You'll be provided with comprehensive post-surgical instructions that will help you care for your pet as they recover from surgery. Your pet's High Point veterinarians will also be available to answer questions or concerns that you may have during the recovery period.
