Truesdell Animal Care Hospital and Clinic

Veterinary Pet Surgery

At Truesdell Animal Care Hospital & Clinic, we are highly experienced in an array of general surgical procedures. While we understand that the thought of your pet undergoing surgery is stressful, we assure you that our team of doctors exhibits compassion and meticulous attention to your pet's pain, anesthesia and cardiovascular functioning from pre-surgical procedure to recovery. For our patients' optimal safety, all pets in need of surgery must have a pre-surgical wellness exam and pre-surgical blood work.

General & Advanced Surgery

Soft-Tissue Surgery generally includes all procedures treating conditions such as trauma and lacerations, mass removal, spay/neuter procedure and more.

Spay/Neuter Procedure promotes a healthier pet and better companion. This minor procedure increases your pet's longevity by reducing the risk of certain conditions and unwanted pregnancy. Also preventing sexual behaviors, your pet will be more loving to you and your family.

Oral Surgery treats the pain caused by dental disease. Extremely uncomfortable, oral bacteria harms not only your pet's teeth and gums, but also has the potential to infect their heart, lungs, liver and kidneys.

Mass Removal is strongly advised if a hernia, cyst or tumor is identified. Not every mass is cancerous, however, to prevent spread, growth and malignancy, removing the area sooner protects your pet's health and safety.

Foreign Body Removal is a must if your pet has consumed a foreign body. While some objects pass through the GI tract smoothly and safely, others can lead to life-threatening conditions. If you think your pet has ingested a foreign object, don't hesitate to give us a call.

Spay/Neuter Procedure

In many cases, spaying or neutering your pet is one of the most responsible choices we as pet owners, can make. This procedure removes reproductive organs in females (spaying) and males (neutering). The spaying and neutering procedure can be done on most pets provided their age and health conditions, so it's smart to discuss this procedure with your doctor ahead of time. There are a variety of benefits to spaying or neutering your pet. Some of these benefits include:

  • Improved quality of life
  • Decrease in health issues later in life
  • Decreases the ability to 'roam', urine marking, and howling in males and females
  • Reduces overall pet population in community
  • Removing reproductive organs in pets can also improve their overall behavior

If you have any further questions on spaying or neutering your pet, please give us a call at 608-244-2555 to speak with one of our staff members.

Oral Surgery

If we observe signs of dental disease during a comprehensive dental exam, we may recommend oral surgery to prevent pain and illness. Depending on the severity of your pet's dental disease, dental cleanings and alternative forms of therapy may simply be unsuccessful. We understand that the idea of your pet undergoing surgery is disheartening, but we assure you that our skilled and compassionate team will provide great relief if your pet needs oral surgery.

We are able to perform common oral procedures such as extractions, broken teeth, and removal of foreign objects lodged beneath the gums. We are also able to perform more advanced oral procedures such as jaw fractures and oral tumors and cysts.

Ophthalmic Surgery

Ophthalmic surgery treats conditions of the eye. If you notice dryness or wetness, redness, ulcers, irritation, inflammation or any other concerning symptoms, do not wait to contact us until the condition becomes more severe! Your pet's eyes are so important to their overall quality of life, and they deserve the gift of sight.

Eyelid Procedures treat conditions such as 'cherry eye,' droopy eyelids, and rolling eyelids to prevent pain, ulcers and blindness.

Enucleations is the surgical removal of the eye. While this is typically a last treatment option, it may be necessary in cases of severe trauma, infection, glaucoma, cancer and various diseases.
