Surgical Prowess: Veterinary Surgical Care

Veterinary surgery is a critical aspect of veterinary care. At Statesboro Bulloch Regional Veterinary Hospital, we understand that our commitment to your pet’s care wouldn’t be complete without offering a full range surgical options to meet your pet’s health needs.

While we will never encourage or perform a surgery that isn’t in your pet’s best interest, we do know the importance of having that option available should the need arise. We offer a full array of soft tissue and advanced veterinary surgical options, as well as orthopedic surgery, for those in need.

Soft Tissue and Advanced Surgery

Soft tissue surgery includes most any surgical procedure that is not orthopedic in its nature. These types of procedures can be either routine or advanced surgeries, depending on their type and how advanced the condition is. The following are examples of surgeries we can perform:

  • Spaying and neutering
  • Mass or tumor removal
  • Laceration and abscess repair
  • Surgeries that involve internal or external stitches due to trauma
  • Feline declawing and dewclaw removal
  • Gastrointestinal surgeries
  • Urogenital tract exploration and repair
  • Repair of skin-folds, such as the eyes, tail, and vulva
  • Repair of the nasal passages
  • Corrective ear surgery (for chronic ear infections)
  • Eye and eyelid surgeries for developmental defects and trauma
  • Anal saculectomy (surgical removal of the anal glands)
  • Gastropexy (tacking of the stomach to the abdominal wall to prevent gastric dilatation volvulus, commonly know as bloat in dogs)
  • Emergency surgery, including emergency cesarean

While your pet’s specific condition and reason for undergoing surgery is always it’s own unique case, you can rest assured that our team’s experience with soft tissue surgery will to ensure the success of your pet’s procedure—and that we will perform that surgery to the very best of our ability.

Before, During and After Your Pet’s Surgery

Regardless if your pet’s surgery has been planned or is a result of an emergency, our staff will be certain to discuss the details of the procedure with you in advance so you know what to expect.

Prior to surgery, we will run a pre-operative blood screening to ensure that your pet is well enough for the surgery and anesthesia and will monitor his or her well-being throughout the operation.

Once the operation is complete, we will discuss post-operative care with you and provide you with the necessary medications to ward off infection and for pain management.

If you have any questions about the procedures we perform, if you would like to discuss any questions you might have about an upcoming surgery, or if you are having any post-op concerns, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
