Our doctors at Smith County Animal Clinic bring their knowledge and expertise in surgical procedures to pet owners in Carthage, Gainesboro, Cookeville, Algood, Celina, and the surrounding areas. We perform routine surgical services including spays and neuters, as well as a wide variety of soft tissue surgeries such as tumor removal, wound repair, and c-sections. We also conduct orthopedic surgeries for ACL, patella, and fracture repair. In the area of dental surgery, we do dental extractions and jaw repairs.

We will conduct an evaluation to determine if surgery is the best option for your pet’s condition. If surgery is deemed necessary, our experienced veterinarians and staff will take the utmost care of your pet and treat it as our own. Since every pet is unique, we complete an assessment prior to surgery so that we can screen for any abnormalities or conditions that may be problematic.

We understand that anesthesia is scary. It’s very common for people to be concerned, especially when their older pet needs a procedure. To ensure your pet’s safety, we will use the information from our evaluations and take into consideration your pet’s species, breed, age, and health to create an anesthetic protocol best suited to your pet.

Once the surgery is complete, your pet will be brought out of anesthesia and our staff will continue to monitor vital signs and pain levels. We will keep your pet on site where our veterinarians can supervise the recovery until your pet is well enough to go home with you. All surgeries are followed up with a post-surgical examination and rehabilitation if needed.

Whether your pet is of the age to be spayed or neutered or needs a different surgical procedure, the veterinarians and staff at Smith County Animal Clinic are here for you. Contact us today for more information.
