Knowing when to consider pet surgery is crucial for ensuring your furry friend receives timely medical attention.

You should consider pet surgery if:

  • Conservative treatments have failed to alleviate your pet’s symptoms or improve their condition.
  • Your veterinarian recommends surgical intervention as the most effective course of action for addressing your pet’s health concerns.
