General Surgery

Our hospital offers many general surgery services that include a variety of common and elective procedures performed under general anesthesia. 

Examples of common surgeries include: spay (ovariohysterectomy), neuter (castration), lump removal and biopsy, laceration repair, abscess and wound repair, exploratory surgery, removal of gastrointestinal foreign bodies, enucleation (eye removal), cystotomy (removal of bladder stones), and skin biopsy. 

As these procedures usually require general anesthesia, please refer to our anesthesia service for more information. We routinely use pain management medication in our general surgeries to ensure your pet's comfort. Please refer also to our pain management service for a detailed description. 

Ask our staff if you have questions about our general surgery services.
