If your pet has been injured, you want to make sure that they are getting the best possible help as soon as possible. The first thing you are going to want to do is contact your vet to see if they can see your pet immediately. They may tell you that they can see your pet, but that if they need to have some specialized surgery, that you might need to take your pet to another medical facility. It's not that your vet doesn't want to help your pet at this point, it's that they want to make sure that your pet is getting the best help possible, and a vet who specializes in surgeries can help your pet better than they can. There are several benefits to taking your pet to a specialist.
Your vet is going to be good at working with pets and most issues, but they may only do particular kinds of surgery on a very occasional basis, which means that your vet isn't going to have the same amount of experience doing those types of surgery as a surgical vet will have. They will have done more of those difficult surgeries and will be able to do it with a lot of confidence, which will be what your pet needs.
Another reason that your vet might send you to a surgical vet for your pet to get the surgery that they need is that the surgical vet is going to have access to some specialized tools that your vet may not be able to get. Some of those things may take up a lot of space that your vet doesn't have to give up to store some things that they don't use on a regular basis. However, since the surgical vet uses those things regularly, they are going to have access to them. Those tools can include things like robots which can assist with very small or very delicate surgeries, as well as allowing the vet to do surgeries that are minimally invasive.
If your pet has gotten hurt, you want them to feel better as soon as possible. That's because they are part of your family, and when they hurt, you hurt. Your vet may recommend that you go to see a vet who specializes in surgeries so that your pet can get the treatment that they really need to get better.
