Bladder Surgery

What Is Bladder Surgery?

Bladder surgery is a type of procedure that is performed to repair or partially remove the bladder. There are several reasons why a veterinarian on our team may recommend this type of surgery, including:

  • Your pet has a blockage in their urinary tract
  • Your pet has a cancerous tumor in their bladder
  • Your pet has an infection in their bladder
  • Your pet has an injury to their bladder

These are just a few of the reasons why a veterinarian on our team may recommend bladder surgery. It's important to remember that each individual case can be different, and the vet will help you make the best decision for your pet's health.

How Is Bladder Surgery Performed?

The type of surgery your pet will have will depend on the reason for the surgery. For example, if your pet has a blockage, the surgeon will likely perform a procedure to remove the blockage.

If your pet has cancer, the surgeon may perform a partial removal of the bladder.


After the surgery, your pet may stay in the hospital for a few days so that we can monitor your pet’s recovery. He will likely need to take pain medication and antibiotics.

You will also need to make sure that your pet stays hydrated and does not exert themselves too much. This means keeping them calm and restricting their activity. A vet on our team can give you specific instructions on how to care for your pet during their recovery. If you have any questions or concerns, be sure to talk to with a vet on our team. She will be able to help you through every step of the process.
