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. Your pet should be seen by a veterinarian immediately if he/she is unable to urinate. Urinary tract calculi are the most common cause of urethral obstruction in dogs, anything that causes stone formation will increase the risk of urethral blockage (see urinary stones).

  • 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 Overland Park Veterinary Emergency & Specialty, we have 3 skilled surgeons, advanced tools and technologies, and fully equipped surgical suites to assist your pet with any surgical needs they may have.

Now offering Laparoscopic Surgery!

Overland Park Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Services is now offering laparoscopic surgery using advanced minimally invasive technology. This provides less pain, decreased blood loss and quicker recovery for your four-legged family member. The VetOvation minimally invasive system enables the doctors to place a tiny scope and instruments inside the patient for spay and biopsy along with many other applications. This will save many dogs and cats from undergoing an invasive open surgical procedure. They also have the ability to use the scope in the urinary bladder for less invasive stone retrieval.
