Surgery is not something the veterinarians at Cooper City Animal Clinic take lightly, and therefore is not something we would recommend unless necessary. As with all of our procedures and treatments, we’re happy to talk you through our recommendations, our reasoning behind them, and all possible options. Rest assured, all of our recommendations (whether surgical or not) are made with your pet’s best interest in mind!
Things we will discuss with you before surgery may include:
- Age of your pet
- Potential complications that may arise
- Potential complications that may arise if surgery is not performed
- Recovery time
- Physical therapy/care by the owner post-op
Most pet surgeries are considered low-risk, but we will always discuss everything with you to make sure you are making as informed a decision as possible!
Some common surgical procedures include:
- Intestinal obstruction from a foreign body
- ACL damage or rupture
- Abscess or lacerations of the skin
- Bone fracture repairs
- Bladder stones/urethral blockages
- Mass or tumor removal
- Malignant tumors on the skin
- Internal bleeding
We also are happy to perform elective surgeries for your pet! These are surgeries that are not urgently necessary or critical, but may improve the quality of you and your pet’s life. Some of these procedures include:
- Dental Extraction
- Benign growths on the skin
If you’re looking for more information regarding surgical procedures, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our helpful staff is eager to answer any and all questions you may have.
