Emergency Surgery For Dogs and Cats
Time is of the essence when it comes to life-saving emergency surgery for dogs and cats.
At CARE Surgery Center, we specialize in veterinary surgery so we recommend that your pet be evaluated by your primary care veterinarian prior to visiting us. Your veterinarian will be able to rule out any questions as to whether or not surgery for your dog or cat is recommended based on prior knowledge of your pet’s health.
If you have any questions or need immediate assistance, do not hesitate to reach out.
Should I take my pet to the emergency vet?
Due to severe trauma, your dog or cat may require emergency animal care. Signs that your pet needs surgery are varied and the symptoms can be obvious or subtle. Examples include loss of appetite, pale gums, prolonged vomiting, retching (to make the sound and movement of vomiting), acute lethargy, increased respiratory rate or effort, acute non-weight bearing lameness, wounds, and other signs of trauma.
Should you notice any of these symptoms in your dog or cat, we recommend bringing your pet to an emergency veterinarian immediately.
What is considered an emergency for a dog or cat?
The following conditions often require veterinary emergency surgery.
Every decision made by our expert veterinary surgeons and staff are done after careful assessment, always making the patient the priority.
Minimally invasive surgical options are used as often as is deemed necessary with your pet’s best interest in mind. Certain emergency abdominal procedures can be performed laparoscopically and certain fractures can be performed via minimally invasive techniques. Rest assured that our team is also highly trained and experienced in all areas of veterinary medicine.

Paying For Emergency Dog Surgery
Your pet’s health is our priority at CARE Surgery Center and we are committed to offering the highest standard of emergency animal care to every pet in need. However, we understand that this is not always feasible financially. Often, pet emergencies come as a greater shock and tend to be less anticipated than human health emergencies.
Depending on the condition of your dog or cat, CARE Surgery Center offers alternative options to accommodate various financial capabilities. We also accept CareCredit, which provides the option of an interest-free payment plan. Visit our Resources page for financing and pet insurance recommendations.
