Surgery for Austin Pets

The vets at our Austin clinic are able to perform a variety of cat and dog surgeries using stringent surgical protocols. 

In every surgery we do, an experienced nurse will provide anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet utilizing electronic patient monitoring equipment. We will also provide your companion with pain management. 

When your pet's surgery is over, our top priorities are pain management and post-operative monitoring. Your veterinarian will also give you thorough instructions for taking care of your pet at home.

What You Can Expect From Surgery

Our team will always keep you up-to-date with the reasons why we are recommending surgery for your pet and on any post-operative care your cat or dog will require at home. We practice stringent surgical protocols at our clinic.

Surgical Procedures

At Northwest Austin Veterinary Center, we conduct emergency and medical surgeries to help treat conditions and diseases in cats and dogs or to fix injuries sustained due to trauma.

Our Austin vets regularly perform the elective and non-elective surgeries listed below:

  • Soft Tissue Surgery

    For cats and dogs that suffer from ear, nose, and throat disorders, we can conduct soft tissue surgical procedures.

    We can also offer these operations for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders. 

  • Spaying & Neutering

    When our vets spay or neuter a dog or cat, we surgically sterilize them to help prevent disease and give them a longer life expectancy. 

  • C-Sections

    Throughout a Caesarean section, our team surgically removes kittens or puppies from their mother's uterus.

    We usually perform C-sections when the mother isn't able to give birth naturally. 

  • Orthopedic Surgery

    Orthopedic surgeries mend and help injuries or diseases of the joints, ligaments, bones, tendons, and other skeletal structures in cats and dogs. If your pet is suffering from a condition or injury that needs advanced specialized care your vet will refer your cat or dog orthopedic surgeon near Austin.

  • Dental Surgery

    Our vets offer dental surgeries for cats and dogs. Some of the dental surgeries we perform include tooth extractions, gum disease treatment, and jaw fracture repairs.

The Surgery Process

Our team knows that the thought of bringing your pet in for surgery can be worrying. We want you to understand that we only recommend surgery when it's in your pet's best interests. 

We'll make sure that you are fully informed about the procedure and understand why we are recommending surgery, so you are comfortable deciding to move ahead.

If your pet requires advanced care, your vet will refer you to a cat or dog surgeon or veterinary surgical specialists near Austin, and work closely with the surgeon to ensure your companion gets quality care.

Surgical protocols at our clinic include:

Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the details of the procedure, conduct a physical examination of your pet, 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 designated surgical suite. This room is kept fully sterile to prevent cross-contamination and infection.

Surgical attire. Our staff wears disposable masks and caps the entire time that they are in the surgical suite. All 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 equipment and instruments before every surgery.
