General Surgeries at Cordova Station Animal Hospital

Pet owners know that healthcare problems can pop up with their furry friends from time to time. While many of these conditions can be managed with time, dietary changes, and oral medications, there are other situations where a surgical procedure might be necessary. As scary as that may be, it’s good to know that you can rely on the trained experts at Cordova Station Animal Hospital in Cordova. Our veterinarians Dr. Sanders and Dr. Warner provide a professional and stress-free environment for your pet when they undergo a surgical procedure. 


Common Surgical Procedures

We offer a wide variety of surgical procedures for our patients and below are a few of the more common surgeries that we perform.

Dental: These issues make up a surprisingly large amount of our surgical procedures. This is likely due to the fact that pets are unable to brush their teeth twice per day. We can handle abscess drainages, tooth extractions, and more when it comes to pet dental surgery. We also have the tools necessary to make this procedure as comfortable for the pet as possible.

Orthopedic Problems: We also perform many surgical procedures due to orthopedic reasons. These often include torn ligaments, broken bones, and dislocations. Pets might be involved in an accident, fall from a great height, or have a congenital issue. Our surgeons know how to handle orthopedic cases with the utmost care.

Tumor Removal: We also provide tumor removal for our patients. Tumors can either be classified as benign or malignant. Often, we do not know which type the tumor is going to be until we take it out. We can safely remove the tumor and send a sample out for testing.

Our surgeries are done in a sterile environment using anesthesia and we follow the best practices available to ensure the safety of your precious pet. We know that your pet is a member of your family and as such we will take good care of them.
