Advanced Surgical Procedures

Advanced Veterinary Surgical Procedures in Honolulu

There are many circumstances that may require your pet to have surgery. Some of the most common types of procedures include removing a benign or malignant skin mass, removing bladder stones, and repairing fractures. If your pet has gotten into an accident, has been attacked by another animal, swallowed a foreign object, or has a serious infection, he or she might need pet surgical care. Sometimes pet surgery needs to be done because it is the only way to treat certain diagnoses, such as cancer. No matter what the reason for pet surgery, you want to take your pet to a caring, experienced, and trusted veterinarian. You will find these veterinarians at the Animal Clinic of Honolulu.

Pet Surgery in Honolulu, HI

Surgery usually does one of two things for your pet. It will either improve or save your pet’s life. Our vet wants your pet to have a healthy life as well as be around for as long as possible. In order to do both, our veterinarian proudly provides highly advanced veterinary surgical procedures. 

Some examples of surgeries we perform include splenectomies, and removal of other organs when necessary, tibial-plateau-leveling osteotomy (TPLO), and orthopedics surgeries. We also perform surgical procedures for emergent diagnosis, such as gastric dilatation volvulus (GDV), hemoabdomen, and intervertebral disc disease (IDD).  No matter what the case may be, our vet will do everything they can to enhance your pet's life, or to save it.

Along with life-improving and life-saving pet surgery, we offer common surgical procedures, such as spays, neuters, C-sections, tooth extractions, tumor removal, and laceration repair.
