Pet Surgery FAQ from your Oklahoma City Veterinarian

Many pet owners dread it when pet surgery is necessary for their beloved companion. At Lakeview Pet Hospital, we have been providing animal care including surgeries ranging from simple to complex. As one of only three AAHA accredited facilities in Oklahoma City, our veterinary is the safest place for your pet’s surgery.

Pet Surgery

What Kinds of Pet Surgery Do We Perform?

The simple answer is, if your cat or dog needs surgery, we have the talent and expertise to perform it. We perform everything from very simple to highly complex surgeries, including the following:

  • Spay surgery
  • Neuter surgery
  • Dental surgery
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Soft tissue surgery
  • TPLO - Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy

Is Anesthesia Necessary for Every Pet Surgery?

We know that many owners are concerned about having their pet anesthetized. We use anesthesia to keep pets safe and comfortable while allowing the veterinarian to perform delicate procedures without distraction. At our veterinary we use proven, safe anesthesia products and perform all surgeries in our pristine, modern surgical suite. Using the most advanced equipment available, we monitor pets throughout their entire procedure.

Why is Spay and Neuter Surgery Necessary?

We are firm believers in spaying and neutering all pets. These routine surgeries carry major preventative, as well as improved behavior benefits, for pets. In addition, pets that are spayed or neutered cannot contribute to the heartbreaking number of unwanted pets in shelters.

What Are Soft Tissue Surgeries?

Classified as non-routine, soft tissue surgeries involve removing any suspicious masses, tumors or bumps. Our veterinarian also performs surgery on eyes, bladder, and other organs.

When Would My Pet Need Orthopedic Surgery?

Whether because of injury or aging, our surgeon performs many orthopedic procedures on pets. Ruptured knee ligaments, hip dysplasia, severe arthritis and other painful joint conditions often necessitate surgery. Unfortunately, a pet who is injured or experiences blunt force trauma may also need orthopedic surgery. 

What is TPLO? 

TPLO, which stands for Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy, is a specialized surgery for fixing ruptured ACL/cranial cruciate ligaments.
