Veterinary Surgery Services for Pets
We offer a wide selection of elective and non-elective surgical procedures for dogs and cats at our Wisconsin Dells clinic, following stringent surgical protocols to ensure the safety of our patients.
In the course of each surgery, a dedicated member of our veterinary staff will administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet using our electronic patient monitoring equipment. We will also be sure to provide your companion with pain management to help them remain comfortable.
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 Veterinary Surgery
We always keep our clients fully informed about why we are recommending a given surgical procedure as well as about what kind of post-operative care their companion will require once they are able to return home.
At Dells Animal Hospital, we perform medical and emergency surgeries to help treat disease and conditions in pets or to repair injuries sustained through trauma.
Our Wisconsin Dells vets routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
For pets suffering from ear, nose, and throat disorders, we offer soft tissue surgical procedures.
These procedures are also available for animals with skin, hepatic, cardiothoracic, oncological and gastrointestinal disorders, among others.
- Spaying & Neutering
When we spay or neuter a cat or dog, we surgically sterilize them to prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.
During a Cesarean section, our veterinarians surgical remove kittens or puppies from their mother's uterus.
C-sections are typically performed when the mother is unable to give birth naturally.
- Mass Removal
Dogs and cats may sometimes develop masses associated with their skin. These masses can also grow inside their body cavity, becoming quite serious, or even 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 instances, specialized equipment and skills will be needed to perform this pet surgery. If this is the case for your companion, our vets will refer you to a cat or dog surgeon near Wisconsin Dells. We will work closely with your veterinary surgeon to ensure that your pet gets the best care possible.
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.
- Orthopedic Surgery
Orthopedic surgeries correct injuries and diseases of the bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other skeletal structures in your pet.
If your dog or cat is suffering from a condition or injury that requires advanced specialized care your vet will refer your dog or cat to a vet surgeon near Wisconsin Dells.
- Dental Surgery
Our veterinarians are able to provide dental surgeries for dogs and cats suffering from oral health issues that require intensive care.
These surgeries can include tooth extractions, gum disease treatments and jaw fracture repairs.
