At Crestview Animal Hospital, we offer a wide range of surgical procedures for cats and dogs in Cumming, GA. During each pet's surgery, a dedicated nurse administers anesthesia and continuously monitors the animal's vital signs using electronic patient monitoring equipment. Pain management will also be provided. 

Following the surgical procedure, our team will focus on post-operative monitoring and pain management for your pet.

Before you head home with your pet, your veterinarian will provide you with thorough instructions for at-home care, including how to administer any medications your pet needs.

What to Expect from Surgery

 We always keep you informed about why we are recommending a particular surgical procedure for your pet and regarding any post-operative care your animal will need at home. Our team always practices stringent surgical protocols at our Cumming veterinary hospital.

Surgical Procedures

At Crestview Animal Hospital, we perform both medical and emergency surgeries to help treat diseases and conditions in pets and to repair injuries sustained through trauma.

Our Cumming vets routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries for dogs and cats:

  • Soft Tissue Surgery

    For pets suffering from ear, nose, and throat disorders, we offer soft tissue surgical procedures.

    These procedures are also available for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders. 

  • Spaying & Neutering

    When we spay or neuter a cat or dog, we surgically sterilize them to prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy. 

  • C-Sections

    During Cesarean sections, we surgically remove puppies or kittens from their mother's uterus.

    C-sections are typically performed when the mother is unable to give birth naturally. 

  • Ocular

    If your pet is experiencing pain, redness or other symptoms in or around their eyes, they may need ocular surgery.

    Common ocular procedures for cats and dogs include eyelid tumor removal, cataract surgery, ectropion surgery, entropion surgery, exenteration of the orbit and cherry eye surgery.

    If your cat or dog requires a veterinary surgical specialist to perform the surgery, our veterinarians will refer you to a pet surgeon near Cumming and work closely with your animal surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care. 

  • Mass Removal

    Cats and dogs can develop masses associated with the skin. Masses can also grow inside a body cavity and can be serious or life-threatening.

    Mass removal surgery is a fairly common procedure for both cats and dogs.

  • Foreign Body

    Sometimes, foreign objects are ingested or can get stuck inside a cat's or dog's body.

    Whether your pet has eaten an object they shouldn't have or an accident has left them injured, we can perform foreign body surgery to remove it.

    In some cases, specialized skills or equipment are needed to perform pet surgery. If that is the case for your animal, your vet will refer you to a cat or dog surgeon near Cumming and work closely with your veterinary surgeon to ensure that your dog or cat receives the very best care.

  • Wounds

    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. 

  • Orthopedic Surgery

    Orthopedic surgeries correct injuries and diseases of the bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other skeletal structures in your pet. If your dog or cat is suffering from a condition or injury that requires advanced specialized care your vet will refer your dog or cat to a vet surgeon near Cumming.

  • Dental Surgery

    Our veterinarians provide dental surgeries for dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.

The Surgery Process

We understand that the prospect of bringing your pet in for surgery can be frightening. Rest assured that we recommend surgery only when it is in the best interests of your pet. 

Our team will ensure that you fully understand why we are recommending surgery and that you are comfortable deciding to move ahead.

If your animal requires advanced care, our vets will refer you to a veterinary surgeon near Cumming, and work closely with your vet surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care. 

Surgical Protocols at Our Clinic

Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the specifics of the procedure, complete a physical examination of the patient, and make sure blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the vet to determine if your pet faces any risk of anesthesia-related complications.

Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are performed in a dedicated surgical suite. This room is kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.

Surgical attire. Our staff wears disposable caps and masks at all times when they are in the surgical suite. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.

Sterile packs and equipment. We carefully clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment before every surgery.
