Why Does My Pet Need Oral Surgery?

There are many potential reasons why your pet might need oral surgery. They may require growth removal, reparation of oral or dental defects, or reparation of a jaw fracture. 

Some oral tumors have no known cause. If oral tumors are detected early, surgical removal may be an option and result in a cure. Jaw fractures from trauma or disease also often require oral surgery to return the dog to a pain-free, happy life.

Is Oral Surgery Safe for My Pet?

At Ark Animal Hospital, we prioritize your pet's safety during oral surgery. Our comprehensive approach ensures a secure and successful procedure.

Pre-surgery: Before anesthesia, we conduct an EKG and routine blood work to assess your pet's health and determine the safest anesthetic protocol.
