Pet Surgical Services for Cats & Dogs in Clinton Township
At our Clinton Township clinic, we offer surgical procedures for cats and dogs, using stringent surgical protocols.
During each pet surgery, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet using electronic patient monitoring equipment. Our team will also manage your pain.
After surgery, post-operative monitoring and pain management become a priority. Your vet will also provide detailed instructions for at-home care.
What to Expect from Pet Surgery
We are committed to always keeping you fully informed about why we are recommending a surgical procedure and any post-operative care your pet will need at home. We practice stringent surgical protocols at our clinic.
We perform medical and emergency pet surgeries at Snider Veterinary Service to help treat conditions and diseases in pets, as well as to repair injuries caused by trauma.
Our vets routinely perform these elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
Soft tissue surgical procedures are for pets suffering from ear, nose, and throat disorders.
Cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, hepatic, urogenital, oncological, and skin disorders are also treated with these procedures.
- Spaying & Neutering
Spaying or neutering a cat or dog means surgically sterilizing them to prevent disease and extend their life expectancy.
If your pet is experiencing pain, redness, or other symptoms in or around their eyes, they may need ocular surgery.
Common ocular procedures for cats and dogs include eyelid tumor removal, ectropion surgery, entropion surgery, exenteration of the orbit, and cherry eye surgery.
Veterinary surgical specialists are sometimes required to perform surgeries on cats or dogs. If this is the case with your pet, our veterinarians will refer you to a pet surgeon near Clinton Township and will collaborate with your animal surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best care possible.
- Mass Removal
Masses associated with the skin can develop in cats and dogs. Masses can also form inside a body cavity and be dangerous or even fatal.
Mass removal surgery is a fairly common procedure for both cats and dogs.
- Foreign Body
Sometimes, foreign objects are ingested or can get stuck inside a cat's or dog's body.
Whether your pet has eaten an object they shouldn't have or an accident has left them injured, we can perform foreign body surgery to remove it.
Pet surgery may necessitate the use of specialized skills or equipment in some cases.

Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burnt, torn, or otherwise damaged.
A qualified veterinarian should clean, disinfect, and care for these wounds as soon as possible.

Orthopedic surgeries, such as FHO (femoral head ostectomy), fracture repair, patellas, amputation, cruciate repair, and meniscal repair, are used to treat injuries and diseases of your pet's bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other skeletal structures.
If your dog or cat is suffering from a condition or injury that requires advanced specialized care your vet will refer your dog or cat to a vet surgeon near Clinton Township.
