Treating Health Conditions with Pet Surgery
For health issues that call for more intensive treatment, surgery may be the next step. There are many underlying problems, from potentially cancerous growths to fractured bones, which are best improved with pet surgery. At Coyne Veterinary Center in Portage, we are proud to offer a dedicated surgical suite with the most up-to-date equipment. In addition, we have a capable veterinary team that’s here 7 days a week to provide an array of soft tissue and orthopedic procedures.
We combine skill, technology and mindful pain control options to give pets and their owners compassionate individualized care.

We Make Safety Our Top Priority
In addition to our advanced surgical equipment, we provide advanced pain management and take many steps to ensure that every patient is safe during their procedure. This includes:
- Conducting a pre-surgical exam and blood work to assess health
- Choosing the appropriate pain control and anesthetic with consideration for your pet’s medical history
- Pre-medicating with pain control and placing an IV catheter for fluids and additional medications
- Full monitoring of vitals by a trained technician
- Warming methods to keep your pet comfortable and at a healthy temperature
- Post-op monitoring to make sure your pet awakens safely
WHY WE RECOMMEND SPAY AND NEUTER
Uncontrolled animal breeding can lead to overpopulation, which results in a large number of strays and overcrowded shelters. Spaying and neutering are the best options for keeping this problem under control and saving more lives. Additional health benefits for pets include:
- Less aggression in males
- No heat cycle or spotting in females
- Less desire to roam
- Reduced cancer risks
Spaying and neutering does not change your pet’s personality, but it can lessen inappropriate behaviors and help to calm your pet.
