Surgery for Cats & Dogs
We are proud to provide surgical procedures for dogs and cats in the Palmdale area using strict surgical safety protocols and state-of-the-art techniques and technologies.
During each surgery, a veterinary professional will administer anesthesia to your pet and monitor them throughout the procedure using our electronic patient monitoring equipment.
After the operation, monitoring and pain management are our top priorities. Your vet will also provide you with thorough instructions for at-home care.
What to Expect from Surgery
We will always keep you fully informed about why we are recommending a given procedure for your pet and what, if any, post-operative care you will need to provide them with once they return home. We are diligent in practicing surgical safety protocols during all of our operations.
At All Care Pet Clinic, we perform medical and emergency surgeries to help treat disease and conditions in pets or to repair injuries sustained through trama.
Our Palmdale vets routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
For pets who are suffering from nose, throat and ear disorders or conditions, we offer soft tissue surgical procedures.
These procedures are also available for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders.
- Spaying & Neutering
When spaying or neutering a dog, cat, or other animal, we are surgically sterilizing them in order to prevent unwanted pregnancies and disease as well as extend life expectancy.
During Caesarean sections, we surgically remove puppies or kittens from their mother's uterus.
C-sections are typically performed when the mother is unable to give birth naturally.
- Mass Removal
Dogs, cats and other pets may develop masses associated with their skin. These masses can also grow inside their body cavity and can grow to be serious or life-threatening.
Mass removal is quite a common procedure for dogs and cats.
- Foreign Body
Sometimes, your pet may ingest otherwise have a foreign object stuck inside 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 Palmdale and work closely with your veterinary surgeon to ensure that your dog or cat receives the very best care.
Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burnt, torn, or otherwise damaged.
It's imperative that these wounds be cleaned, disinfected, and appropriately cared for by a qualified veterinarian as soon as possible.
- Orthopedic Surgery
Orthopedic surgeries correct injuries, conditions or diseases affecting your pet's bones, joints, ligaments or other skeletal structures. If your cat, dog or other animal are suffering from a condition or injury which requires specialized care which our vets are unable to give, we will refer you to a vet surgeon near Palmdale
- Dental Surgery
Our veterinarians provide dental surgeries for dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.
The Surgery Process
We know that the idea of having to bring your pet in for surgery can be a frightening one. Rest assured that we only recommend surgery when it is in the best interests of your furry companion.
We will make sure that you fully understand why we are recommending surgery for your pet and that you are comfortable with making the decision to move forward before we take any action.
If your pet requires advanced care, our vets will refer you to a veterinary surgeon near Palmdale, and work closely with your veterinary surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.
Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the specifics of the procedure, complete a physical examination of the patient, and make sure blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the vet in order to determine if your pet faces any risk of anesthesia-related complications.
Dedicated surgical suites. We perform surgeries in our dedicate surgical suite. We keep this room completely sterile in order to prevent infection or cross-contamination.
Surgical attire. Our staff wear disposable caps and masks at all times when they are in the surgical suite. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Sterile packs and equipment. We carefully clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment prior to every surgery.
