Pet Surgery

Whether for emergency situations that may involve life or death or a procedure like a spay or neuter, the veterinarians at Ashton Animal Hospital are prepared to provide pet surgery services for your cat or dog in our surgical suite, outfitted with state of the art surgical and monitoring equipment and procedures to ensure your pet's health and safety in their healing process. There are many conditions which your pet may be experiencing that call for the use of surgical procedures. While surgery might not be the safest choice for some pets, namely older animals, in some situations, it may be the only option that can save your pet's life.

Depending on your pet's health, they may never require surgery, besides the regular spay or neuter procedures. But depending on many different factors and variables, your pet may experience issues or health conditions in which the only resolution lies in a surgical operation. While a spay or neuter is not a necessary surgical procedure for your pet's health, it is the most common and it helps to contribute to the prevention of animal overpopulation as well as preventing pyometra, mammary and testicular cancers, and prostate disease.

Some other common issues that pets run into include the ingestion of foreign objects and blunt force trauma. Our pets love to chew things and this means that they can swallow foreign objects, which can become stuck within your pet's stomach, intestines, or other organs, which will require removal by surgery. Accidents with pets running into vehicles is a common issue that may require surgery to treat internal damage and trauma to the musculoskeletal system due to the blunt force. 

In treating muscle or joint related conditions, such as arthritis, hip dysplasia, ruptured Anterior Cruciate Ligament, or Luxating Patella, surgery can be a useful tool that can help to relieve pain in these areas as well as to increase the level of function. When the need is more urgent, with serious, life threatening internal issues like cancer, Gastric Dilation Volvulus, Bloat and Gastric Torsion, and Liver Shunt, soft tissue surgery may be necessary to save your pet's life.

Whether you are looking to have your pet neutered/spayed, treat your pet's joint/muscle condition, or require immediate emergency surgical services for your pet, the veterinarians and staff at Ashton Animal Hospital are prepared to provide treatment for your pet with loving care.

Testimonials

The staff is so nice and helpful. Lily receives such great care there. I have been taking my pets to Ashton since 1989 when we got our first cats. It was a natural choice in 2012 when we got our dog, to take her there as well.
