Veterinary Surgery

Sometimes, animal surgery is necessary. Vet surgery may be needed for a variety of reasons, and common animal surgery procedures include cataract surgery for dogs, cat surgery for abscess repair, and knee surgery for dogs, among others. While vet surgery can be a scary prospect as most procedures are emergency based, it is important not to let your fear of your pet’s death or worries about anaesthesia or recovery time prevent your pet from getting the potentially life-saving intervention he or she needs. Untreated, many issues requiring veterinary surgery can be quickly fatal, or result in severe, long-term pain and suffering.

When To See Your Vet For Veterinary Surgery

Not all injuries are immediately apparent, as animals will instinctively hide their pain. This is why it is important to have your pet checked out by a vet as soon as the injury or event happens, regardless of whether or not you see symptoms in your pet.
