Veterinary Surgery for Cats and Dogs
We offer a wide range of veterinary surgical procedures for cats and dogs at our Los Angeles County clinic, using stringent surgical protocols.
In the course of each pet surgery, a dedicated member of our veterinary team with administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet using electronic patient monitoring equipment. We will also provide pain management throughout.
Post-operative monitoring and pain management are our priorities following surgery. Your vet will also provide thorough instructions for at-home care.
What to Expect from Vet Surgery
Our vets will always keep you fully informed about why we are recommending a given surgical procedure as well as what pre - or post - operative care your pet will require before and after their surgery. We always practice stringent surgical safety protocols at our hospital.
At Animal Hospital of Redondo Beach, we perform medical and emergency veterinary surgeries to help treat disease and conditions in pets or to repair injuries sustained through trauma.
Our Los Angeles County vets routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
For pets suffering from ear, nose, and throat disorders, we offer soft tissue surgical procedures.
These procedures are also available for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders.
- Spaying & Neutering
When we neuter or spay a dog or cat, we are surgically sterilizing them in order to prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.
- Mass Removal
Dogs and cats can develop masses that are associated with their skin relatively frequently. Masses may also grow inside their body cavity and may be serious or even life-threatening.
Mass removal surgery is a fairly common procedure for both cats and dogs.
- Foreign Body
Sometimes, our cats and dogs eat something they shouldn't, or an accident happens, and a foreign object can get stuck in their body.
Whether your pet has eaten an object they shouldn't have or an accident has left them injured, we can perform foreign body surgery to remove it.
In some cases, specialized skills or equipment are needed to perform pet surgery. If that is the case for your animal, your vet will refer you to a cat or dog surgeon near Los Angeles County and work closely with your veterinary surgeon to ensure that your dog or cat receives the very best care.
A wound occurs when living tissue has been broken, burnt, torn, cut, or otherwise damaged.
It's critical that these wounds be cleaned, disinfected and appropriately cared for by a qualified vet as soon as possible.
During a urethrectomy, our vets remove all or part of a cat's or dog's ureter.
During a cystectomy, our vets remove a cat's or dog's urinary bladder.
- Dental Surgery
Our veterinarians provide pet dental surgeries for dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.
