Surgical Care

Our experienced doctors perform a wide range of surgeries, including spays and neuters, soft tissue procedures, and amputations.

We take every precaution to ensure your pet’s safety during any surgical procedure. One of our doctors will perform a physical examination and pre-anesthetic testing to check for underlying conditions that could put your pet at risk. During your pet’s surgery, one of our veterinary technicians will monitor your pet’s vital signs, including heart and respiratory rate, blood pressure, and other vitals. We will also administer appropriate pain medication to keep your pet comfortable during recovery.

Why Spay or Neuter?

When appropriate for your pet’s species, we recommend spaying all female pets and neutering all male pets. Not only does this help keep pet populations in check, it also reduces your pet’s risk of contracting certain conditions and cancers, prevents females from experiencing uncomfortable (and inconvenient) heat cycles, and can even reduce your pet’s risk of roaming.

Soft Tissue Surgeries

Surgery that doesn’t involve bones or joints is called soft tissue surgery. We perform minor soft tissue procedures such as growth removals and foreign object removals. For more extensive surgeries, such as splenectomies or hernia repair, we call in a specialist from Texas Specialty Veterinary Services


At Fischer Veterinary Clinic, we do perform amputations, but if your pet requires a complex orthopedic surgery, we will call in a board-certified specialist to perform the surgery at our practice.

Dental Surgery

Our doctors can perform tooth extractions and remove lumps and bumps from your pet’s mouth.

Knowing that your pet needs surgery can be stressful, even when it’s a minor procedure. We are always here to answer any questions you might have about your pet’s surgery. Please call us to schedule your pet’s procedure or to discuss your pet’s condition.
