Lakewood Pet Surgery Procedures Range from Routine to Complex

In addition to routine care such as vaccinations, wellness evaluations, and dental cleanings, our team at Wadsworth Animal Hospital is happy to provide pet owners in Belmar and Lakewood pet surgery. We realize that no owner looks forward to scheduling a surgical procedure for their pet, however, our skill and experience can make the ordeal easier for both you and your pet.

Some forms of  pet surgery are performed as part of preventative wellness care, such as spay and neuter surgery. These surgeries prevent unwanted breedings as well as preventing some future health problems such as testicular, ovarian, and mammary cancer.

Tumors, both benign and malignant, often require surgical removal, depending on the tumor type and location. Skin cancers are one of the most common type of tumor removal surgery among dogs and cats. We most often recommend that a sample of the tumor is biopsied to determine whether it is benign, malignant, and if it was adequately excised. Oral cancers may be very serious and are often detected during annual dental evaluations, Our surgical team can remove these tumors as well. Extractions of decayed, broken, or diseased teeth are part of the pet surgery care we provide at our clinic for dental matters.

Emergency pet surgery may be necessary for acute or extremely painful injuries. We can also treat acute or chronic orthopedic problems such as a luxating patella, hip dysplasia and torn cruciate ligaments surgically or medically, helping pets enjoy better mobility and less pain in their daily lives.

Fulfilling Your Lakewood and Belmar Pet Surgery Needs

We advise owners on all aspects of a scheduled pet surgery appointment, including pre-operative and post-operative steps. Food, for instance, should not be administered after 8 p.m. on the eve of surgery, though water can and should be offered as usual. Blood-thinning medications should also be curtailed in advance; we can advise owners on which medications should be continued and which should be temporarily withheld. 

On the morning of the surgery, owners should walk their pets normally but discourage excessive exertion. We instruct owners on how to administer antibiotics and painkillers, and how to detect possible complications that require further veterinary attention. Contact our office so we may discuss your Lakewood or Belmar pet surgery needs.
