Pets undergo all kinds of surgery from simple procedures to complex operations. Some have routine procedures, such as spaying or neutering. Others have more complicated procedures, such as orthopedic surgery or tumor removal. At Wintermere Pointe Animal Hospital in Winter Garden, FL, we perform a wide range of procedures. Call us at (407) 554-3422 to learn more about pet surgery and schedule a pet wellness exam with our veterinarian, Dr. Pedro Santiago.
Why Your Pet Might Need Surgery
Surgery does not always mean that your pet has a serious condition or injury. Having your pet neutered or spayed involves undergoing surgery. These are common procedures that many pets go through to prevent reproduction and lower their risk for certain health problems and behavioral issues.
Pets sometimes need surgery to repair an injury that cannot be treated with other methods. Surgical procedures might also be done as part of a treatment plan for health conditions, such as osteoarthritis or hip dysplasia. Pets sometimes need surgery to remove an obstruction, such as when they accidentally swallow a foreign object.
