VCA Wakefield Animal Hospital

General Surgery

Our hospital offers many General Surgery Services. General surgery includes a variety of common and elective procedures performed under general anesthesia. Examples of common surgeries include: spay (ovariohysterectomy), neuter (castration), lump removal and biopsy, laceration repair, abscess and wound repair, exploratory surgery, removal of gastrointestinal foreign bodies, enucleation (eye removal), cystotomy (removal of bladder stones), and skin biopsy. As these procedures usually require general anesthesia, please refer to our Anesthesia Services for a detailed description of our offerings. We routinely use pain management medication in our general surgeries to insure your pet's comfort. Refer to our Pain Management Services for a detailed description. Ask our staff if you have questions about our General Surgery Services.
