Sometimes, pets need surgery to optimize their health and to manage certain veterinary disorders. Our veterinarian provides these procedures with the greatest of care to ensure a good outcome. At Lewisburg Veterinary Hospital, we offer various surgical procedures for pets. Dr. Mary Ann Mann has over 37 years of experience providing surgical and internal medical care to animals in Ohio, Connecticut, Maryland, and now Virginia.
Spay and Neuter
Spaying (for females) or neutering (for males) means removing all or part of an animal's reproductive organs. This can be performed as a routine surgery at our clinic. In females, this means removing the ovaries as well. Spayed females will also not go into heat and attract unwanted males. Our veterinarian will recommend the appropriate time for spaying or neutering, specific to your animal.
Sometimes our pets can have an issue with one or several teeth. This can be for various reasons. Teeth can become infected, which quickly causes the infection to spread to other teeth, tissue, or bone. Infections in the mouth can easily enter the bloodstream, which can pose even more dangerous health concerns. Sometimes pets break or damage a tooth, making it painful for your pet to eat. Broken, diseased, or damaged teeth must be extracted to help ease your pet's discomfort or to prevent the spread of dangerous diseases.
Pets may develop growths on the face or body that can be unsightly and may signal the start of a malignant tumor. Our pet doctor can remove these growths and determine if they are benign or malignant. If additional treatment is required, our vet can advise you on options for care.
Pets often develop hard stones in their urinary systems that can cause pain and problems with normal function. A cystotomy is a procedure that opens up the bladder or other part of the urinary system to remove these stones. The procedure has few complications and is generally provides a successful outcome.
