Reasons for Veterinary Surgery

Depending on your pet's medical concerns, surgery may be the best course of action to keep them healthy. There are a variety of reasons why your pet may need surgery, such as:

  • Blockages: If your pet swallows something that they shouldn't and develops a blockage, they may require surgery to remove it.

  • Cancer: While not necessary for all types of cancer, surgery may be beneficial for the removal of some or all of your pet's cancerous tumors.

  • Injuries: If your pet breaks a bone or has a serious wound, they may require surgery for reconstruction or repair.

  • Tooth decay: Severe tooth decay or gum disease may require the surgical removal of some or all of your pet's teeth.

Here at Animal Emergency Hospital, we have 11 skilled doctors, advanced tools and technologies, and fully equipped surgical suites to assist your pet with any surgical needs they may have. Learn more about the most highly-qualified veterinarians in Grand Rapids below.
