Surgical Care at the Cat Clinic of Iowa City

There are occasions when surgery may be necessary to sustain the health of your pet. Feline surgery presents challenges different than those of canine surgical procedures. Surgery for cats requires precise surgical tools and a staff with specialized experience. The Cat Clinic of Iowa City is able to offer a wide range of surgical procedures, including:

  • Spay/Neuter
  • Tumor removals
  • Bladder stone removal
  • Dental surgery

What to Expect

Our staff prepares patients for surgery by running blood work using our in-house diagnostic lab. We monitor your cat’s vitals throughout the procedure. Once we’re confident of their recovery, we provide thorough guidance for any post-operative care at the time of their discharge. If needed, all our medications are available at the clinic for your convenience.

Pain Management

We are happy to offer the option of laser surgery in order to reduce pain, inflammation and risk of hemorrhaging as well as shorten the time our patients need to make a full recovery. Once your cat is ready to go home, we will provide thorough home-care instructions tailored to your cat’s post-surgical needs. For your convenience, pain management prescriptions are available at the clinic to use as recommended by Dr. Hayes, Dr. Lyons-Nace, and their staff.
