We offer a wide variety of surgical procedures for dogs at cats at our Cincinnati veterinary clinic, using stringent safety protocols and state-of-the-art technology.
Throughout each surgery, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet using our electronic monitoring equipment. We will also provide pain management to your pet.
Post-operative monitoring and pain management are our priorities following surgery. Your vet will also provide thorough instructions for at-home care.
What to Expect from Surgery
We will always keep you fully informed about why we are recommending a given surgical procedure as well as provide instructions about post-operative care your pet will need when they are able to return home. Rest assured that we always practice stringent surgical safety protocols at our clinic.
At Hyde Park Veterinary Clinic, we perform medical and emergency surgeries to help treat disease and conditions in pets or to repair injuries sustained through trauma.
Our Cincinnati vets routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries:
Soft Tissue Surgery
For pets suffering from ear, nose, and throat disorders, we offer soft tissue surgical procedures.
These procedures are also available for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders.
Spaying & Neutering
When spaying or neutering a dog or cat, we surgically sterilize them to prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.
Cats and dogs will often develop masses in their bodies associated with their skin. Masses can also grow inside their body cavity, however, and develop into life-threatning health issues.
Mass removal surgery is a fairly common procedure for both cats and dogs.
Sometimes your cat or dog will ingest a foreign object into their body which they really shouldn't have.
Whether you pet has had an object lodged in their body through an accident or by eating something they shuldn't have, we are able to perform foreign body surgery to remove it.
In some cases, specialized skills or equipment are needed to perform pet surgery. If that is the case for your animal, your vet will refer you to a cat or dog surgeon near Cincinnati and work closely with your veterinary surgeon to ensure that your dog or cat receives the very best care.
Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burnt, torn, or otherwise damaged.
It's imperative that these wounds be cleaned, disinfected, and appropriately cared for by a qualified veterinarian as soon as possible.
