We offer a wide range of surgical procedures for cats and dogs at our Villa Rica clinic, using stringent surgical protocols.
During each surgery, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet using electronic patient monitoring equipment. Pain management will also be provided.
Post-operative monitoring and pain management are our priorities following surgery. Your vet will also provide thorough instructions for at-home care.
What to Expect from Surgery
We always keep you fully informed about why we are recommending a surgical procedure and regarding any post-operative care, your pet will need at home. We practice stringent surgical protocols at our clinic.
At Villa Rica Animal Hospital, we perform many emergency and medical surgeries to help treat disease and conditions in pets or to repair injuries sustained through trauma.
Our vets in Villa Rica routinely perform these elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
Soft tissue surgical procedures are for pets suffering from ear, nose, and throat disorders.
These procedures are also available for oncological, gastrointestinal, skin, cardiothoracic, urogenital, and hepatic disorders.
- Spaying & Neutering
When a cat or dog is spayed or neutered, they are surgically sterilized to prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.
If your pet is experiencing pain, redness, or other symptoms in or around their eyes, they may need ocular surgery.
Common ocular procedures for cats and dogs include eyelid tumor removal, cataract surgery, ectropion surgery, entropion surgery, exenteration of the orbit, and cherry eye surgery.
If your cat or dog requires a veterinary surgical specialist to perform the surgery, our veterinarians will refer you to a pet surgeon near Villa Rica and work closely with your animal surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.
- Mass Removal
Cats and dogs can develop masses associated with the skin. Masses can also grow inside a body cavity and can be serious or life-threatening.
Mass removal surgery is a fairly common procedure for both cats and dogs.
- Foreign Body
Sometimes, foreign objects are ingested or can get stuck inside a cat's or dog's body.
Whether your pet has eaten an object they shouldn't have or an accident has left them injured, we can perform foreign body surgery to remove it.
In some cases, specialized skills or equipment are needed to perform pet surgery. If that is the case for your animal, your vet will refer you to a cat or dog surgeon near Villa Rica and work closely with your veterinary surgeon to ensure that your dog or cat receives the very best care.
Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burnt, torn, or otherwise damaged.
It's imperative that these wounds be cleaned, disinfected, and appropriately cared for by a qualified veterinarian as soon as possible.
- Dental Surgery
Our veterinarians provide dental surgeries for dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.
- Emergency C-Sections
Cesarean sections are usually performed if the mother is unable to give birth naturally. At Villa Rica Animal Hospital, we will perform C-sections in emergency situations.
The Surgery Process
We understand that the idea of bringing your pet in for surgery can be daunting. Please rest assured that we recommend surgery only when it is in the best interests of your furry friend.
We will make sure you fully understand why we are recommending surgery, and that you are comfortable making the choice to move ahead.
If your pet needs advanced care, our vets can refer you to a veterinary surgeon near Villa Rica, and work closely with your vet surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.
Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the specifics of the procedure, complete a physical examination of the patient, and make sure blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the vet in order to determine if your pet faces any risk of anesthesia-related complications.
Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are performed in a dedicated surgical suite. This room is kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.
Surgical attire. Our staff wears disposable caps and masks at all times when they are in the surgical suite. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Sterile packs and equipment. We carefully clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment prior to every surgery.
