Pet Surgery in BakersfieldAny pet illness, especially a pet emergency that requires surgery, can be a stressful time for both you and your animal companion. Your cat or dog may be in pain, bleeding, and scared. Fortunately, modern pet surgery is technically advanced, safe and effective, and greatly improves the comfort of your cat or dog. The gentle and compassionate staff at Thurman Veterinary Center uses state-of-the-art diagnostic and surgical procedures to care for your pet.

The Most Common Types of Pet Surgery

Pet surgery is not just for emergencies. Your animal companion might need elective pet surgery to help him live a healthier, more comfortable life. Spay and neuter surgery prevents unwanted pregnancies and improves the health of your pet. We can also declaw your cat to prevent scratches on other pets, humans or even furniture in the house.

  • Tooth extraction
  • Removal of a benign or malignant skin mass
  • Bladder stones
  • Abdominal wall cancer
  • Treatment of bite wounds from a fight
  • Cancer of the liver
  • Cancer of the mouth

  • Removal of a benign or malignant skin mass
  • Treatment of skin problems, such as abscess, inflammation, or a pressure sore
  • Tooth extraction
  • Torn ACL in the knee or cartilage in joints

  • Cancer of the liver
  • Bladder stones

The veterinary surgeons at Thurman Veterinary Center perform a wide variety of pet surgeries, both emergency and elective.

What to do When Your Companion Needs Pet Surgery

Take your pet to the nearest Bakersfield animal hospital in the event of a pet emergency. In cases of life and death, take your cat or dog to the nearest Bakersfield veterinarian for emergency care.

Make an appointment with your local Bakersfield veterinarian when your animal companion needs elective pet surgery. You might have to prepare your pet for surgery the night before the procedure by withholding food and water. Ask the technician for instructions when you make the appointment.

The technology behind pet surgery has advanced at the same pace as the medical care you receive. Emergency surgery saves the lives of thousands of cats and dogs each year, while elective surgeries improve the quality of their lives. Your local Bakersfield veterinarian performs all the basic and advanced types of pet surgery your animal companion needs for a long, healthy and happy life.
