Reasons for Veterinary Surgery

While not all health problems that your pet may have will require surgery, it is sometimes the best course of action. The reasons why your pet needs surgery can vary greatly, but a few of the most common problems with surgical solutions are:

  • Blockages: If your pet swallows something that they shouldn't, they may develop a blockage that requires surgery to remove. Your pet should be seen by a veterinarian immediately if he/she is unable to urinate. Urinary tract calculi are the most common cause of urethral obstruction in dogs, anything that causes stone formation will increase the risk of urethral blockage (see urinary stones).

  • Cancer: Surgery isn't always necessary to treat cancer, but it may be beneficial to remove some or all of your pet's tumors this way.

  • Injuries: Some broken bones and other serious wounds may require surgery for reconstruction or repair.

Whatever your pet's surgical needs are, our hospital is fully equipped with state-of-the-art surgical suites and 3 skilled surgeons on staff to assist you. Learn more about the best surgical team in Mission below.
