Pet surgery may or may not be necessary.

Pet surgery may be necessary for dogs, cats, and other small animals in order to address a variety of medical conditions or injuries. Common procedures for dogs include spaying and neutering, as well as surgeries to address health issues such as joint problems, tumors, and dental issues. For cats, spaying and neutering are also common, as well as surgeries to address issues like dental problems, blockages, and tumors.

Small animals may require surgery for a variety of reasons, including abscesses, growths, or digestive obstructions. 

At Smith Animal Hospital, we can help you understand the risks and benefits of a particular surgery, as well as any necessary preparation and follow-up care for your furry friend. While pet surgery can be a stressful experience, it can also be an essential step in providing the best possible care for a beloved animal.
