Just like humans, your cat or dog may eventually need to go under the knife for a life-saving surgery. Pet surgery can seem scary, however, with the appropriate veterinary care, surgery can improve the quality of life of your furry family member.
Surgeries range from minimally invasive, to requiring significant recovery time. It is important to have a veterinarian with you every step of the way. Our veterinarians will walk you and your pet through surgery and post-operative care. At Oakdale Animal Hospital, we are dedicated to providing surgical procedures for pet traumas and pet emergencies. We help pet owners in and around Brandon and Flowood get the help they need.
Does My Pet Need Surgery?
Pet surgery is required for several reasons, whether to keep your pet healthy or to prevent medical issues. Some of the most common pet surgeries include:
- ACL repair
- Surgery for cancer
- Surgery for internal injuries to due pet trauma
- Surgery for dislocated bones and fractures
- Ear surgery
- Spinal surgery
- Femoral head ostectomy
- Feline Perineal urethrostomy
Surgeries such as spaying or neutering your cat or dog, might not be 100% necessary, but they can improve your pet’s quality of life. Surgery may be needed if you notice your pet has expressed recent changes or has displayed any of the following behaviors:
- Changes in mood
- Lack of appetite
- Increased appetite
- Visible blood or injury
- Changes in barking
These behaviors can indicate your pet needs to be seen by a veterinarian. At Oakdale Animal Hospital, our veterinarians will determine whether or not your pet needs surgery, in addition to providing surgery for pet trauma caused by accidents or an emergency.
