Experienced Surgical Care for Cats & Dogs
At Ingersoll Veterinary Services, we offer a range of elective and medical surgical procedures to help maintain and restore good health for your dog or cat.
These include spay & neuter procedures, soft tissue surgery, and dental surgery, among many more.
At Ingersoll Veterinary Services, we make open communication and transparency a priority. We want to ensure that you feel confident in your choice to proceed with surgery for your pet, and that you have peace of mind throughout the entire process.
We perform medical and emergency surgeries at Ingersoll Veterinary Services to help treat disease and conditions in cats and dogs, as well as to repair injuries caused by trauma.
Our Ingersoll veterinarian routinely performs the following elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Spaying & Neutering
Spaying and neutering are very common surgical procedures performed to sterilize pets, prevent disease, and provide dogs and cats with an extended life expectancy.
- Soft Tissue Surgery
Soft tissue surgery covers a range of ear, nose, and throat procedures as well as mass removals and treatment of flesh wounds.
Soft tissue surgery also includes procedures for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders.
Cesarean sections are performed to surgically remove puppies or kittens from their mother's uterus. C-sections are typically performed when the mother is unable to give birth naturally.
- Laceration Repair
A laceration is a wound produced by the tearing of body tissue. Unlike an incision with smooth edges, a laceration is often jagged and irregular. Surgical repair of a laceration is indicated whenever the laceration occurred recently and is large enough to warrant sutures.
If your pet has suffered a trauma, puncture wound or bite and is in need of laceration or abscess repair, our experienced and talented team will effectively evaluate and treat your pet to minimize additional risks and keep pain under control.
- Foreign Body Removal
Sometimes, foreign objects are ingested by cats and dogs and become stuck inside a cat's or dog's body. Whether your friend has eaten an object they shouldn't have or an accident has left them injured, we can perform foreign body surgery to remove it.
- Wound Repair
Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burnt, torn, or otherwise damaged. It's imperative that these wounds be cleaned, disinfected, and appropriately cared for by a qualified veterinarian as soon as possible in order to avoid infection and other complications.
- Dental Surgery
Our veterinarian provides dental surgeries to relieve pain and restore good oral health to dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and more.
The Surgery Process
We know that surgery for cats and dogs can be a frightening prospect. Rest assured that we only recommend surgery when we feel it's in your pet's best interest.
We will conduct a pre-surgical assessment prior to any surgery. This includes a physical exam as well as blood tests.
During each surgery, a technician will administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet using electronic patient monitoring equipment. Pain management will also be provided.
Post-operative monitoring and pain management are our priorities following surgery. Your veterinarian will also provide thorough instructions for at-home care.
