Reasons for Pet Surgery
Your Columbus veterinarian may recommend pet surgery for a number of reasons. If you don’t want to deal with pet pregnancies and litters, you can have your pet sterilized through spay or neuter surgery. This surgery is quick, safe, and effective in preventing unwanted pregnancies. It also protects your pet from developing reproductive tumors, infections and cancers in later years.
Your pet may need surgery to remove an unusual skin growth or mass to determine if it’s cancerous. Dental extractions to remove an infected tooth is also considered surgery. Surgery may be needed to treat a medical condition like bloating, bladder stones, cancer, broken bones, or other health issues. We may need to perform emergency surgery to treat serious injuries from a car accident or animal fight or to extract an object from your pet's stomach that he shouldn't have swallowed.
