Pet Surgery and pain management
At some point in your pet's life, he or she may need surgery. From spay and neutering to dental cleanings and other surgical procedures – we offer many of them here at Lenoir City Animal Clinic.
If your pet needs surgery, it's natural to have questions. We want you to know with confidence that you are making the best decision for your pet's health. Our experienced veterinarians perform various surgeries throughout the week, from spays and neuters to tumor removals.
Along with taking every step to make pet surgery as safe and pain-free as possible, we also aim to make it as affordable as possible. For any questions or concerns, we recommend that you consult with our team to put your mind at ease.

Depending on the nature of your pet’s exam with us, they might need one of the following procedures:
- Spay and neuter
- Dental cleanings and minor oral surgery
- Foreign body removal
- Mass and tumor removal
- ...and more
Keeping up with your pet’s exam schedule helps us maintain an ongoing record of their health and medical history. Whenever we see something unusual, we can investigate further and, if surgery is needed, recommend a course of action to help your pet get healthy sooner.
the importance of Pain Management
Experiencing pain can affect the body’s physical functioning and can have a detrimental effect on a patient’s well-being and state of mind. That’s why pain management is among our primary considerations when we are treating a pet for any medical condition.
Our approach to pain management involves anticipating potentially painful procedures and taking steps to manage pain from the outset as well as continuing to manage pain throughout your pet’s treatment and recovery process. Our staff of compassionate, caring professionals is skilled in recognizing signs of pain in animals and developing an individualized plan for managing pain in our patients.
From routine procedures like spays or dental cleanings, to more advanced medical treatments and chronically painful conditions, such as arthritis or back pain, we are dedicated to providing safe and effective pain management to every patient. We will also help you recognize signs of pain in your pet so that we can modify his or her pain management plan when necessary.
Recognizing and alleviating pain in our patients is at the very heart of quality, compassionate patient care. We don’t take pain management for granted and will employ all our skills to help ensure your pet’s comfort, well-being, and full recovery.
