Common Cat & Dog Surgeries We Perform

Almost every pet will undergo surgery at least once in their life, and here are some of the most common surgeries we perform:

  • Spays and neuters
  • Mass/tumor removals
  • Foreign body removals
  • Skin tag removals
  • Exploratory surgery
  • Abdominal procedures

For more complex procedures, we may refer you to a nearby board-certified surgeon at a specialty hospital or arrange for a traveling board-certified surgeon to come to our facility to perform the surgery. Some of those common surgeries include:

  • Patella luxation repairs
  • Fracture repairs

Our Safety Protocols for Every Surgery

Whether a routine spay or neuter or a complex orthopedic procedure, we provide each and every pet with the same extensive safety protocols which include:

  • Pre-anesthetic exam and blood work to check your pet’s overall health and look for any underlying conditions that may affect their ability to handle anesthesia
  • IV catheter placement to supply your pet with fluids throughout the surgery, which helps to regulate their blood pressure and keep them hydrated
  • Vitals monitoring of your pet’s heart rate and rhythm, respiration rate, pulse oximetry, blood pressure, and more
  • A dedicated technician who watches over your pet from their admission through their recovery
  • Medication designed to minimize pain, discomfort, and anxiety before, during, and after surgery and through recovery

Once your pet's procedure is finished, they'll be moved to recovery, where their technician will monitor them until they are alert. We'll let you know when they're ready for pick up, and will go over detailed recovery instructions for home. We'll also send you home with pain management to help your pet recover in minimal discomfort. If for whatever reason you are concerned about your pet during recovery, please don't hesitate to contact us at our Hospital (510) 521-6608 or our Clinic (510) 521-5775.
