Soft Tissue Surgery

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.

We offer:

  • Cat and dog spays and neuters
  • Mass removals
  • Eye enucleations
  • Entropion eye surgeries
  • Cystotomy
  • Hernia repair



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.

  • Femoral Head Osteotomy (FHO)
  • Cranial Cruciate surgery
  • Intramedullary pins
