We offer a wide range of surgical procedures for cats and dogs at our pet hospital in Dallas, 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 detailed instructions for at-home care.
What to Expect from Surgery
We are committed to keeping you fully informed about why we are recommending a surgical procedure. We will also review any post-operative care requirements your pet will have. We practice stringent surgical protocols at our hospital.
At North Tollway Pet Hospital, we perform emergency and medical surgeries to help treat diseases and conditions in pets, or to repair injuries sustained through trauma.
Our vets in Dallas 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 cardiothoracic, skin, gastrointestinal, hepatic, oncological and urogenital disorders.
- Spaying & Neutering
When we spay or neuter a cat or dog, we surgically sterilize them to prevent disease and extend their life expectancy.
During Caesarean sections, puppies or kittens are surgically removed from their mother's uterus.
C-sections are typically performed when the mother is unable to give birth naturally.
- 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 Dallas 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.
- Orthopedic Surgery
Orthopedic surgeries correct injuries and diseases of the bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other skeletal structures in your pet. Our mobile orthopedic surgeons can come in on an as-needed basis to perform surgery if your cat or dog is suffering from a condition or injury that requires advanced specialized care.
- 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.
The Surgery Process
We understand that the prospect of bringing your pet in for surgery can be daunting — even frightening. Please rest assured that we only recommend surgery when it is in the best interests of your furry companion.
We will ensure that you fully understand why we are recommending surgery, and that you are comfortable making the decision to move ahead.
If your pet requires advanced care, our vets will refer you to a veterinary surgeon near Dallas, 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.
