SURGICAL OPTIONS

Pet Surgeries

We hope your pet never needs surgery.  However, if the need arises, you should know that Newberry Animal Hospital Group is committed to the most advanced procedures in Veterinary Medicine and Surgery.  We are an intermediate veterinary care group.  This means that our doctors dedicate their ongoing education to the latest in specialty/advanced surgical (as well as minimally invasive) techniques and methods.  


We routinely offer "2nd opinions” for not only medical, but also surgical, cases, whether you chose us to manage your pet's health, or not. If your current veterinarian is recommending an invasive or specialty hospital procedure, feel free to bring your pet to us for our review and opinion.

Do you have a TPLO surgery recommendation for a dog that has a torn cruciate ligament (ACL or CCL issues)? There are other options to treat this problem, including much less invasive surgical techniques. There are documented successful techniques that include physical therapy and a less-invasive surgery. Most of these are more cost-effective, as well as less traumatic for your pet. We also can over a pet transport option if you need it! Let us help you explore all of your options.

What does this mean to you as a pet owner? We can often get results with less pain, less recovery time and at a reasonable cost, without the need for an expensive ‘specialty referral’.  This gives you, the pet parent, the greatest value and best care options.  If, however, our doctor group believes that an outside referral will give you the best possible outcome, we will not hesitate to recommend this option.  In the end, your pet’s health is our primary focus.

When possible, our Veterinary Surgeons will use ultrasound in conjunction with Fine-Needle Aspiration (FNA) along with other techniques to make diagnoses. This is in contrast to traditional veterinary medicine that may recommend surgery as a first step to diagnosing diseases.  

 

This allows several things:  

  • the minimum pain for your pet (with maximum medical information)

  • the minimum expense to you the pet owner

  • you guide the process as we make recommendation

This is the most common orthopedic problem in the canine.  Know commonly CCL injury/rupture, ACL Tear/injury/rupture, knee injury, hindlimb lameness/limping. This is our number one most-valued minimally-invasive procedure.  Not only can we help your pet regain normal orthopedic function, we do it with minimal pain and at a fraction of the cost.  The Newberry Animal Hospital Group has the most advanced surgical and non-surgical care options for complete resolution of this common knee injury.

Whether your dog or cat ingested inappropriate food items, human or animal medications or other toxic substances, our doctors have decades of experience in treating these events.  We have direct access to poison control and specialty care options. 

Accidental Ingestions/Toxins

Also referred to as GD or GDV is a condition of extreme distention of the stomach which may be twisted on itself.  This is life-threatening… and generally requires surgery.  We have many years of experience treating this emergency, but at a fraction of the cost that a specialty hospital charges.

Bloat

Was your pet hit by a car, golf cart or maybe in a dog fight? Our team manages these emergencies on a regular basis.  We accept emergencies during working hours without an appointment (walk-ins).  We are happy to ‘triage’ your emergency and make sure your injured pet family member receives the best care available.

Traumatic Injuries

We have both non-invasive and surgical options.  Each patient is treated as an individual and a care plan is designed to meet your financial capabilities, as well as give the best possible treatment outcome. 

Fractures/Broken Bones

When there is a growth/mass/tumor in the spleen, it often requires its removal.  Our Veterinary Surgeons perform this procedure on a regular basis and at a fair price.

Splenectomy

When female cats or dogs are having difficulty birthing, we offer this emergency surgical option.  We are a phone call away if you have a dog or cat in labor.  Our doctors and staff are here to support you through this stressful process.  We will give you the latest recommendations to avoid a surgical procedure.  When medical management will not work, we have the experience and the expertise to perform this surgery for your pet.

Caesarian Sections (C-Sections)

This is a uterine infection in the intact/non-spayed female dogs or cats.  We recommend early spay/neuter to best avoid this condition. The causes are generally attributed to hormonal influences in older females.  We routinely perform emergency ovariohysterectomies with excellent results and quick recoveries.

Pyometra

Both Cats and Dogs can get a urinary obstruction from stones or inflammatory debris.  We offer the latest in medical management of these conditions.  If your pet is not responsive to this we can offer affordable corrective surgery.  This procedure is called a Perineal Urethrostomy or know as a PU Surgery.

Urinary Obstruction

When traditional radiology (x-ray) can not identify the problem, we offer Ultrasound as a non-invasive procedure to determine the cause of illness.  This procedure is painless and allows your cat or dog to relax on a padded mat while we have a quick look at their inside with our Ultrasound.

Ultrasound/Ultrasonography

Often, this type of surgery is the only option if a traditional method of detection (such as x-ray or ultrasound) does not explain your pet’s condition.  An Exploratory surgery can not only reveal the cause, but would provide the opportunity to correct it.  Even though we believe surgery should be the last option for a diagnosis, we are fully committed to minimally invasive surgery techniques to help make the post procedural recovery quick, and as pain free as possible.

Exploratory Surgery

For the removal of bladder stones, we can help you manage this condition.  We will offer the latest dietary recommendations and if this does not resolve the condition we perform these surgeries routinely with a minimally invasive technique.  Our patients are generally back to normal within 24 hours.

Cystotomy

Often, our hospital can offer the same services as are offered at specialty hospitals.  Although we work with specialists, many of our doctors have been trained to perform these specialty techniques.
