Pet Surgery Services With Your Lake Forest Veterinarian

In addition to offering routine pet exams and emergency animal hospital services, we offer pet surgery for dogs and cats. While no pet owner looks forward to the day when their pet needs surgery, the truth is that most pets require at least one to two surgical procedures during their lifetime. At the very least, a majority of pets undergo spaying or neutering. Fortunately, expert help is available if your dog or cat ever requires pet surgery.

Soft Tissue Surgery - Examples of soft tissue surgery include growth and lump removals, laceration repair, abscess and wound repair, skin biopsies, and abdominal surgeries. 

Foreign Body Removal - Many pets will ingest toys, bones, rocks, and household items that can obstruct the intestinal tract. X-rays, ultrasound, and/or barium studies can help verify the location of the foreign body prior to its surgical removal.

Cystotomy - A cystotomy procedure involves the removal of stones from the urinary bladder.

Pet Orthopedics - An in-house board certified veterinary surgeon is available to perform orthopedic surgeries such as the repair of fractured bones, dislocated knee caps, and cranial cruciate ligament injuries. 

Dental Surgery - Dental care under anesthesia may involve not only the removal of tartar and plaque, but also dental x-rays, the extraction of loose, broken, or infected teeth, and the removal of any tumors that develop in the mouth.

Spay and Neuter Services - Spaying or neutering your dog or cat can have many benefits and advantages. These include an improvement in behavior, lowered likelihood of the pet running away, and better control of pet populations. The spaying or neutering of a pet is highly recommended for your four legged family member.
