Surgery Service for Cats
We perform all sorts of surgical procedures on cats, here at North Town Veterinary Hospital. Routine surgeries include spays (removal of the uterus and ovaries), neuters (removal of the testicles), dental cleanings/tooth extractions. More advanced surgeries that are sometimes emergent in nature include the cystotomy (removal of bladder stones), lumpectomy (removal of lumps on the body), enucleation (removal of a diseased or injured eye) and wound repairs.
Because we are a 24-hour emergency facility, we are able to do emergency surgery, including the pyometra (removal of an infected and swollen uterus), foreign body surgery (removing a foreign object from the gastrointestinal tract), exploratory surgery (visually exploring the abdomen to collect a sample or find out what is making the cat sick), and cesarean sections, when a cat is having trouble giving birth.
We are also able to call in orthopedic specialists to perform fracture repairs, amputations, or joint surgery at North Town so that you do not have to travel far to get these specialized procedures.
We have a veterinarian scheduled for surgeries three days per week, but often emergency procedures will occur overnight, or even on the weekend! We literally work around the clock to do what is best for your pet.
