At Southwind Animal Hospital in Southeast Memphis, our veterinarians routinely perform surgical procedures including soft tissue surgery, back surgery and c-sections.
Surgical Veterinary Services
The veterinarians at Southwind Animal Hospital practice up-to-date surgical procedures using sterile surgical techniques.
Every surgical procedure includes continuous electronic patient monitoring and pain management by a dedicated anesthesia nurse. We also provide post-operative monitoring and pain management.
Our Basset Hound, Bogie, loves Southwind Animal Hospital, and so do we. All of the doctors and staff have taken wonderful care of Bogie since we moved to Memphis in 2008. From neck and back issues, to anal gland expression, to dental cleanings, to overnight stays, and regular check ups and shots, Bogie has received excellent care from all of the staff at Southwind.
We routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgical procedures.
- Soft Tissue Surgery
We offer soft tissue surgical procedures for dogs and cats suffering from ear, nose and throat disorders, as well as cardiothoracic, hepatic, gastrointestinal, urogenital, skin and oncological disorders.
A c-section (caesarean section) is major surgery during which puppies or kittens are removed from the uterus of a dog or cat. We perform c-sections in emergency cases where the animal has difficulty giving birth naturally. Most animals recover quickly and without complication.
- Back & Neck Surgery
Just like humans, dogs can develop disc problems in their neck and backs.
Breeds that commonly suffer from neck disc problems are Cocker Spaniels, Poodles, Dachshunds and Lhasa Apsos, whereas large breed dogs are more likely to have chronic lower back issues.
Dogs with advanced disc disease should have surgery as soon as possible. The sooner that surgery is done, the better the prognosis.
- Spaying & Neutering
Both spaying and neutering refer to the surgical sterilization of an animal under general anesthesia to help prevent disease and provide pets with a healthier, happier and extended life expectancy.
- Dental Surgery
Southwind Animal Hospital offers a variety of oral surgeries for dogs and cats.
We strive to make your pet's surgical procedure as comfortable and stress free as possible for your pet, and for you, too.
