What Types of Advanced Surgical Procedures Are Available with Your Veterinarian in Jacksonville?

Whether you live in Jacksonville or Arlington FL, we want to help your pet overcome their injury or illness during their regularly scheduled or emergency vet visit to our veterinarian in Jacksonville. If we cannot correct the issue with medication or the recommendation of rest or physical therapy, we will suggest that you help us prepare your pet for the necessary surgery. Our surgical care team will prepare the surgical suite for the necessary animal surgery in Jacksonville to ensure proper sterilization and maximum comfort to keep your anxious pet safe and calm.

Understanding issues that may require surgery may help prepare you for the possibility that your pet may someday need an operation with a skilled Jacksonville veterinarian. Following are a few of the most common advanced surgical procedures that Dr. Lee and the rest of our care team provide for your pet:

  • Spaying and Neutering. Spaying or neutering your pet is one of the most responsible things you can do to prevent an excessive pet population that often results in abandoned pets. Along with relieving you of the responsibility of finding suitable homes for a pet’s offspring, you can also avoid some of the less pleasant sexual behaviors that accompany having pets that have not been spayed or neutered.
  • Ortho Surgery. Whether your pet has broken a leg or hip, or suffers from a degenerative joint condition, we can help correct the issue to give your pet the chance to recover and resume their previous happy-go-lucky lifestyle.
