We offer a full array of soft tissue and advanced veterinary surgical options, as well as orthopedic surgery, for the pets of Statesboro and Bulloch county who find themselves in need.
Our team is dedicated to less intrusive options whenever possible, and we will never encourage or perform a surgery that isn’t in your pet’s best interest, but when surgery is the best course forward you can count on us to provide your cat or dog with the best surgical care in the region.
Post-operative monitoring and pain management are our priorities following surgery. Your vet will also provide thorough instructions for at-home care.
Keeping Pet Owners Informed
Regardless of whether your pet’s surgery has been planned, or is instead the result of an emergency, our staff will be certain to discuss the details of the procedure with you in advance so you know exactly what to expect.
At Statesboro Bulloch Regional Veterinary Hospital, we perform medical and emergency surgeries to help treat disease and conditions in pets or to repair injuries sustained through trauma.
Our veterinary surgeons 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 hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders.
- 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 Caesarean sections, we surgically remove puppies or kittens from their mother's uterus.
C-sections are typically performed when the mother is unable to give birth naturally.
If your pet is experiencing pain, redness or other symptoms in or around their eyes, they may need ocular surgery.
Common ocular procedures for cats and dogs include eyelid tumor removal, cataract surgery, ectropion surgery, entropion surgery, exenteration of the orbit and cherry eye surgery.
If your cat or dog requires a veterinary surgical specialist to perform the surgery, our veterinarians will refer you to a pet surgeon near Statesboro and work closely with your animal surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible 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. If your dog or cat is suffering from a condition or injury that requires advanced specialized care your vet will refer your cat or dog to an orthopedic vet surgeon near Statesboro.
- 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 frightening. Please be assured that we recommend surgery only when it is in the best interests of your furry companion.
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, your cat or dogs surgeon will discuss post-operative care with you and provide you with the necessary medications to ward off infection and for pain management.
If your pet requires advanced care beyond Statesboro Bulloch Regional Veterinary Hospital's capabilities, our vets will refer you to a veterinary surgeon and will work closely with the veterinary surgical specialists to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.
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.
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.
Sterile packs and equipment. We clean, sterilize, and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment prior to every surgery.
Surgical attire. Our staff wears disposable caps and masks at all times while they are in the surgical suite. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are performed in a dedicated surgical suite. This room is kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.
