The veterinarians and staff at VCA County West Animal Hospital are highly trained to perform a vast array of surgical procedures - everything from spays and neuters to complicated emergency, orthopedic and soft tissue surgeries.
Prior to surgery, your pet receives a thorough physical examination to identify any existing medical conditions that might endanger your pet's health. Because not all problems can be detected on examination, we also suggest pre-anesthetic blood and urine testing. These tests not only give us a more complete picture of your pet's health, but also allow us to tailor an anesthetic regime that is specific for your pet.
Companion animals, especially those in their later years, also can suffer from a range of joint and ligament injuries and maladies, such as arthritis. Some species of dogs are also highly prone to these types of injuries and illnesses.
