Surgical Services for Pets
We can perform a wide variety of surgical procedures for both dogs and cats at our Fountain Valley pet clinic, using stringent surgical protocols.
In every veterinary surgery we perform, a devoted nurse will administer anesthesia, provide pain management, and continuously monitor your pet with electronic patient monitoring equipment.
After surgery, pain management and post-operative monitoring become our top priorities. Your vet will also provide thorough instructions for at-home care.
What You Can Expect from Veterinary Surgery
Our vets will keep you completely informed regarding the reasons why we are recommending surgery and about any post-operative care requirements your pet will have at home. At our clinic, we practice stringent surgical protocols.
At Brookfield Pet Hospital Plus, our veterinary team conducts emergency and medical surgeries to help treat conditions and diseases in cats or dogs or to repair injuries that have been obtained due to trauma.
Our Fountain Valley vets can perform these elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
We offer soft tissue surgical procedures for pets that are suffering from nose, throat, and ear disorders.
These surgeries can also be conducted for urogenital, hepatic, oncological, gastrointestinal, cardiothoracic, and skin disorders.
- Spaying & Neutering
When we spay or neuter a cat or dog, we surgically sterilize them to prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.
When our vets conduct Cesarean sections, they surgically remove kittens or puppies from their mother's uterus.
Most of the time C-sections are performed when the mother can't give birth naturally.
Your animal friend might require ocular surgery if they have redness, pain, or other symptoms in or around their eyes.
Some common ocular procedures for pets include cataract surgery, eyelid tumor removal, entropion surgery, ectropion surgery, cherry eye surgery, and exenteration of the orbit.
If a veterinary surgical specialist needs to perform your dog or cat's ocular surgery, our veterinarians will refer you to a pet surgeon near Fountain Valley and work with them closely to make sure they get the best care possible.
- Orthopedic Surgery
Orthopedic surgeries for dogs and cats correct injuries and diseases of the bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other skeletal structures. If your pet is suffering from a condition or injury that requires advanced specialized care your vet will refer your dog or cat to a vet surgeon near Fountain Valley.
- Dental Surgery
Our veterinarians can conduct a range of dental surgeries for cats and dogs. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.
The Surgery Process
We realize how taking your pet to the vet for surgery can be scary. We want you to know that our team only recommends surgery when it's in your pet's best interests.
We'll make sure that you completely understand the reasons why we are suggesting veterinary surgery and that you are comfortable deciding to go ahead with the procedure.
If your animal companion needs advanced care, our vets will refer you to a veterinary surgeon near Fountain Valley, and work with them hand in hand to ensure your pet receives the best possible care.
Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the details of the procedure, conduct a physical examination of your pet, and ensure all of the blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the vet to determine if your pet faces any risk of anesthesia-related complications.
Dedicated surgical suites. We perform our surgeries in a designated surgical suite. We keep this room completely sterile to prevent cross-contamination and infection.
Surgical attire. Our staff wears disposable caps and masks the entire time they are in the surgical suite. Anyone involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Sterile packs and equipment. Our surgical instruments and equipment are carefully cleaned, sterilized, and wrapped before every surgery.
