Important Notice

We no longer perform surgeries at Admirals Walk Pet Clinic. However, we are collaborating with trusted clinics for these surgeries. We will guide you through the process of booking surgical procedures with these clinics.

We expect to resume full-service operations in late 2023.

Surgery for Dogs & Cats

Our team knows that the prospect of taking your pet in for surgery can be frightening. Rest assured that we only recommend surgery when we feel it is in the best interests of your beloved pet.

We strive to ensure that you understand why we are recommending a particular surgery and that you feel informed and comfortable deciding to go ahead with the procedure. 

Our team of vets will provide you with information about the surgery, including the risks and benefits, so that you can make an informed decision.

We can also advise you on post-operative care to make your pet recovers as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Surgery, Victoria Vet

Surgical Procedures

At Admirals Walk Pet Clinic, we refer out medical and emergency surgeries to help treat diseases and conditions in pets or to repair injuries sustained through trauma.

Our Victoria veterinarians refer out the following elective and non-elective surgeries:

  • Soft Tissue Surgery

    Soft tissue surgery covers a range of ear, nose, and throat procedures as well as mass removals and treatment of flesh wounds. Almost all surgical procedures not covered under the heading of orthopedic surgery may be considered soft tissue surgery.

    Soft tissue surgery also includes procedures for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders. 

  • Spaying & Neutering

    Spaying and neutering are very common surgical procedures performed to sterilize pets, prevent disease, and provide dogs and cats with an extended life expectancy. 

  • C-Sections

    Cesarean sections are performed to surgically remove puppies or kittens from their mother's uterus. C-sections are typically performed when the mother is unable to give birth naturally. 

  • Ocular Surgery

    Ocular surgery is performed to treat eye conditions in dogs and cats. Common ocular surgeries include eyelid tumour removal, cataract surgery, ectropion surgery, entropion surgery, exenteration of the orbit and cherry eye surgery. 

  • Mass Removal

    Masses can also grow on or just under the skin or inside a body cavity. While some masses may be removed for aesthetic purposes, other masses can be serious or even life-threatening.

  • Foreign Body Removal

    Sometimes, foreign objects are ingested by pets and become 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, our trusted referral clinics can perform foreign body surgery to remove it.

  • Wound Repair

    Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burnt, torn, or otherwise damaged. It's imperative that these wounds be cleaned, disinfected, and appropriately cared for by a qualified veterinarian as soon as possible in order to avoid infection and other complications. 

  • Orthopedic Surgery

    Orthopedic surgeries correct injuries and conditions of the bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other skeletal structures in your pet. Common veterinary orthopedic surgeries include TPLO and FHO.

  • Dental Surgery

    Dental surgeries relieve pain and restore good oral health to dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.

The Surgery Process

Before surgery, a pre-surgical assessment is conducted. This includes a physical examination of your pet as well as blood tests to determine if they face any risk of anesthesia-related complications.

During each surgery, a nurse administers anesthesia and continuously monitors your pet using electronic patient monitoring equipment. Pain management will also be provided. 

Post-operative monitoring and pain management are the priorities following surgery. Your veterinarian will also provide instructions for at-home care.

Sterilization Protocols

Surgical protocols at the clinics we refer out to include dedicated surgical suites which are kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.

The staff wear sterile attire at all times when they are in the surgical suite, and they clean, sterilize and wrap the surgical instruments and equipment before every surgery.
