Surgery

Animals can suffer from a range of conditions and accidents that require surgery to fix their ailments. At Ironmines Veterinary Clinic we provide a high level of surgery expertise in our dedicated surgery suite in both soft tissue and orthopaedic (bone and joints).

Some of the typical surgeries that can be performed include:

  • Desexing
  • Entropian surgery on ingrown eyelids
  • Lump removals
  • Wound Stitch ups
  • Removing stones that form inside urinary bladders
  • Removing intestinal foreign bodies
  • Caesareans
  • Removal of cancers
  • Emergency exploratory laporotomies
  • Cranial Cruciate ligament repair
  • Broken bone repair
  • Amputations

This list is almost endless. Every animal that undergoes surgery will require a general anaesthetic. Throughout your pets anaesthetic he or she will be monitored by a veterinary nurse using a combination of monitoring equipment. Pain relief is paramount to ensuring that your pet recovers from their surgery as comfortably as possible.
