Emergency Surgery

There are many conditions our pets experience that may require emergency surgery – all of which our veterinarians are capable of performing 24/7. 

  1. Trauma – Accidents, falls, or animal attacks can lead to severe injuries in pets. Trauma surgeries may address fractures, internal injuries, and wounds. Ensuring your pet receives immediate assessment and care will minimize pain and speed up the healing process.
  2. Gastrointestinal Surgery. Sometimes animals ingest foreign objects, leading to intestinal blockages or obstructions. Our veterinarians can perform surgeries to remove these objects and restore normal digestive function.
  3. Soft tissue surgery. Soft tissue surgeries encompass a wide range of procedures, including tumor removal, reconstructive surgery, and organ biopsies. 
  4. Urogenital surgeries we perform include emergency cesarean sections, pyometra surgery, removal of bladder stones and relief of urethral obstruction.
  5. Bloat (Gastric Dilation and Volvulus). This life-threatening condition occurs most often in large, deep-chested breeds, causing the stomach to twist. Emergency surgery is essential to relieve the torsion and prevent shock.
  6. Tumors and Mass removals. Suspicious lumps or tumors should be evaluated promptly. Biopsy and surgical removal, especially in the case of cancerous growths, might be necessary for diagnosis and treatment. Typically these are addressed by a general practitioner but occasionally due to infection or bleeding, these are treated in the ER. 
  7. Ruptured Organs: Trauma to or tumors on the liver or the spleen can sometimes rupture leading to internal hemorrhage. Emergency surgery is vital to stop internal bleeding and repair or remove the damaged organ.
  8. Fractures. Broken bones, especially compound fractures where the bone pierces through the skin, require surgery to set the bone properly, reducing pain and ensuring proper healing. Often these are stabilized in the ER and referred to a veterinary surgeon for treatment. 

As a pet owner, recognizing signs of surgical distress and acting promptly can make a significant difference in your pet’s outcome.
