Pet Surgery

It’s every pet owner’s worst fear: an accident or illness that lands your pet in a Richmond animal hospital. Medical emergencies are scary for everyone, but when it’s your beloved cat or dog, you feel a special responsibility to make sure they’re okay. Fortunately, our veterinarian in Richmond TX performs a full range of pet surgery,

Pet Emergencies that Require Surgery

The most common pet surgeries are soft tissue or orthopedic surgeries, and both are solutions for sudden trauma. If your pet has an internal injury or sudden condition that affects the muscles, tendons, or organs, they may receive soft tissue pet surgery in Richmond. If your pet’s illness or injury causes a bone fracture or bone damage, our veterinarian may perform orthopedic surgery to repair the bone.

Here are some of the most common pet emergencies that require pet surgery in Richmond:

  • Bite Wounds – Some bite wounds are deep enough to require surgical attention
  • Bladder Stones – These painful stones can be life-threatening without prompt removal
  • Tooth Fractures – If your pet breaks a tooth, they may need dental surgery as soon as possible
  • Torn ACL – Pets, especially active dogs, are also prone to this painful, debilitating ligament tear

Common Accidents & Illnesses that Require Pet Surgery

Of course, every surgery isn’t a response to a life-threatening injury or debilitating veterinary emergency. Sometimes, gradual damage occurs because of a long-term illness or an untreated injury that gets worse over time.

Our vet in Richmond TX offers surgical treatments for many accidents and illnesses, including these:

  • Cancer – Many forms of cancer, including spleen, eyelid, liver, and mouth cancer, cause growths and damage that require pet surgery
  • Benign Masses – Some non-cancerous masses can still be dangerous (especially if they press on nearby organs)
  • Dental Disease – Tooth extractions are also necessary if decay or disease causes pain
  • Poor Development – Ear hematomas, malformed limbs, and other birth defects may require pet surgery

Team members who are not feeling well or have potential exposure to COVID-19 are being asked to stay at home. We have implemented an increased scope and frequency of cleaning in our facility. Surfaces that are touched frequently are being cleaned often and wiped down. Hand sanitizers are placed in multiple locations. We are encouraging drop off appointments, while spacing out the appointments that absolutely cannot be dropped off in hope of limiting face to face time while ensuring that our patients are getting all of the care needed. We encourage quick hand-off of your pets to clinic staff. In some situations, a case by case analysis of the situation may be considered as far as coming in to the hospital.  We want to thank all our dear clients for your understanding and cooperation in these challenging times.  This too shall pass. 

 Thanks, Dr. Fidelis & Staff.
