Everyone here at CASE Animal Hospital is committed to giving your pet the best care possible, which means providing solutions for animal surgery when your pet’s care requires it. We’re here to perform only the necessary medical and surgical treatments and return your pet to their healthy and usual self.
We aim to provide holistic care to our patients, and sometimes that means surgery. Look below to learn more about the various treatments available at CASE Animal Hospital so you know when to bring your pet and what to expect when you bring them to the best veterinarian Yorba Linda has available.
Options for Minimal Animal Surgery in Yorba Linda
Not every case that requires surgery will result in complex procedures that leave pet owners fearing the worst, and even though every surgical procedure carries a degree of risk, modern techniques and our team’s continuous education put at your pet’s disposal innovative procedures that are minimally invasive and highly effective.
Here at CASE Hospital, we care for your pets as if they were our own, and these minimally invasive surgery procedures use small incisions rather than large openings that allow for precise treatment and faster recovery times.
Here are some options:
Thoracoscopy for Pets
This is a procedure taking place in your pet’s “chest” area, or rather, thoracic cavity, that aims to treat conditions of the heart, lungs, and other surrounding tissues. This procedure will also allow us to remove malignant tumors and perform biopsies, pericardectomies, and more.
Laparoscopy for Small Animals
This is one of the most well-known examples of minimally invasive surgery and it can help your pet with a faster return to normal activity, decreased pain, and a reduced risk of wound infection. Some of the procedures we perform include bladder stone removal, biopsies, gall bladder removal, and spaying.
General Surgery for Animals in Yorba Linda
General surgery will help address concerns that are not localized or limited to a single area of your pet’s body. These procedures cover your pet’s abdomen, thorax, endocrine organs (such as the pancreas), ears, nose, eyes, and more.
Our specialists recommend general surgery for your pet when they need:
- Airway surgery;
- Reconstructive surgery;
- Head and neck surgery;
- Treatment for hernias;
- Addressing burn injuries or direct trauma;
- Gastrointestinal problems;
- And more.
Orthopedic Surgery for Pets
These are procedures that address musculoskeletal problems, which means taking care of your pet’s bones, ligaments, joints, muscles, and tendons.
Here at CASE Hospital, we will help your pet if they require attention due to injuries to their head, legs, and thorax. Here are some of the most common problems that require animal orthopedic surgery:
Cranial Cruciate Ligament Injury
Your pet’s knee ligaments can degenerate, over-stretch, and even tear, which will cause a lot of discomfort and put the knee joints at risk. We might recommend one of three common corrective procedures depending on your pet’s age, size, and weight. Make sure to get in touch with us so we can review your pet’s case and determine if they need tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA), extracapsular suture repair, or plateau-leveling osteotomy (TPLO).
If your pet had any congenital problems that resulted in hip joining developmental abnormalities, they will probably suffer from a lot of pain around the area. Solutions may range from surgical options, such as femoral head osteotomy, a double or triple pelvic osteotomy (DPO/TPO), or a full hip replacement.
Some joints, such as your pet’s kneecap or “patella,” can move out of their normal position, causing several problems. Usually, the joint may pop back into place, but these episodes can become more recurring and lengthier, putting your pet’s quality of life at risk. We can address these concerns with definite surgical correction, but you’ll have to bring your pet for evaluation.
