What is a Surgery?
Surgery is a veterinary procedure where an incision is made to the animal’s body so that a veterinarian can repair, replace, or remove a damaged or diseased part.
When our pets need surgery it can be scary, and surgeries can easily cost thousands of dollars. Luckily, pet insurance does reimburse for surgeries.
How Surgery Works
Surgeries are commonly performed for routine procedures, such as spaying or neutering and dental cleanings. They can also be used for emergencies or to help treat genetic conditions. Examples of surgeries for genetic conditions include luxating patella surgery, hip dysplasia surgery, or tumor removal.
