Reasons for Veterinary Surgery

While not all health problems that your pet may have will require surgery, it is sometimes the best course of action. The reasons why your pet needs surgery can vary greatly, but a few of the most common problems with surgical solutions are:

  • Blockages: If your pet swallows something that they shouldn't, they may develop a blockage that requires surgery to remove.

  • Cancer: Surgery isn't always necessary to treat cancer, but it may be beneficial to remove some or all of your pet's tumors this way.

  • Injuries: Some broken bones and other serious wounds may require surgery for reconstruction or repair.

  • Tooth decay: Gum disease or severe tooth decay may require dental surgery to remove infected teeth.

Whatever your pet's surgical needs are, our Center is fully equipped with state-of-the-art surgical suites and our skilled surgeon on staff to assist you. Learn more about the best surgical team in Yonkers below.
