pet surgery

Many people have a reflexive fear of the word "surgery" -- not only in reference to their own needs, but also when thinking about surgery for their beloved pets. But in the hands of a skilled, experienced San Antonio veterinarian like Dr. Woolley or Dr. Stewart here at Family Pet Hospital of Stone Oak, you can rest assured that your pet will receive the highest standards of care and safety throughout his surgical procedure. From routine surgeries to emergency intervention, you can always count on our team.

Types of Pet Surgery

Why might your pet need surgery? Veterinary surgery may be advisable or necessary in a variety of circumstances, not all of them life-or-death in nature. At Family Pet Hospital of Stone Oak, our veterinarians can perform a wide range of operations, including:

  • Spay and Neuter Surgery - In addition to preventing unwanted pregnancies, these forms of sexual sterilization actually boost your pet's chances of a healthy life by eliminating or greatly reducing the risks of reproductive cancers and other diseases. It also frees your pet from the heat-related compulsive behaviors that may pose additional health risks.
  • Orthopedic Surgery - Pets may experience pain and/or lameness due to acute injuries (such as ruptured ligaments), congenital joint abnormalities, or degenerative conditions such as severe osteoarthritis. We can bring in (or refer you to) a specialist who can repair or replace problematic joints.
  • Dental Surgery - Tooth extraction, oral cancer surgery, and other forms of dental surgery are commonly performed at our clinic. Even a deep dental cleaning, in which plaque is removed from below the gum line, can be considered a surgical procedure.
  • Mass Removal - We will a suspicious internal or external mass and perform a biopsy on it. If the mass is malignant, we may perform additional surgery.
  • Internal Surgery - Your San Antonio veterinarian can perform many kinds of gastrointestinal surgery, from bloat correction to foreign object removal. We can also perform urinary system procedures such as bladder stone removal.
  • Emergency Care - We can seal lacerations, close wounds, set broken bones and perform other types of emergency surgery as needed.

What to Expect Before, During and After Surgery

Your San Antonio veterinarian will brief you on whether your pet should have food the night before surgery. We may have you bring your pet in early on the day of the procedure so we can prepare properly. Once your pet wakes up from the anesthesia and is ready to go home, we'll provide you with the necessary instructions on administering medication, watching the incision site, applying dressings as needed, and generally ensuring a healthy recovery.
