Pet Surgery and Veterinary Care

At South Side Animal Clinic in Rolla, MO, we offer pet surgery and other procedures to help your pet stay healthy. In addition, our animal hospital is knowledgeable about spay and neuter surgeries and other surgeries. These are a few procedures our veterinarian offers.  


Spay and Neuter

Spaying and neutering are essential to ensure your pet is healthy and happy. Spaying removes the reproductive organs of a female pet, while neutering removes the reproductive organs of a male pet. This procedure prevents unwanted pregnancies and reduces aggression in pets. However, it also contains behavioral issues, including spraying and fighting. Removal of the reproductive organs can also prevent problems like breast cancer and testicular cancer.

Surgery can be performed when puppies and kittens are at least eight weeks old, but some dogs may need to wait until they are six months old.

Tooth Extraction

Sometimes, a pet may need to have one or more teeth extracted. This tooth decay might be due to an injury, infection, or another issue. We perform tooth extraction surgeries with the utmost care and attention to detail.

Dental extractions are beneficial for pain relief and preventing further damage to the mouth. In addition, extractions can prevent infections and other serious medical issues. Additionally, dental problems may be related to kidney issues, tumors, or a poor diet. A vet will help you identify any ongoing issues your pet may face.

Tumor Removal

In some cases, a pet may need a tumor removed. This procedure requires careful attention and skill to remove all affected areas. Our experienced veterinarians will work with your pet to safely and effectively remove the tumor.

Tumor removal requires anesthesia and surgical precision. We strive to ensure your pet is comfortable throughout the process and that the tumor is removed correctly. We will assess cancer to determine its threat level and perform other treatments if required.
