Our staff of compassionate, caring professionals will monitor your pet before, during, and after surgery and will take exceptional care to ensure a safe and complete recovery for your pet. We will also address any questions or concerns you may have about surgery, including concerns about anesthesia, pain management, or postoperative care.

When your pet is ready to go home, we will review your postoperative care and medication instructions. If any questions arise after your pet returns home or at any other time during the postoperative period, call us. We welcome your questions and will do all we can to help your pet recover fully. Help is only a phone call away.

Surgery can be a source of anxiety and stress for many pet owners. Maybe you worry about whether your pet will be well cared for, or perhaps you have concerns about adequate precautions and monitoring. Let us address your concerns. Whether your pet needs minor surgery or a complex procedure, call us. Let's discuss how our surgical services can benefit your pet.

The search for answers to your pet's health problems can be challenging. If you have been referred to the VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital surgical team, you and your regular veterinarian may have already been searching for those answers for some time.

Specialized Experience

Many owners are increasingly seeking specialized care for their pets, just as they do with any of their family members, in order to secure the very best outcome. What exactly does a veterinary specialist bring to the table?

VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital's specialists have deep and intimate knowledge of their chosen fields of practice and see countless cases over the course of a career. They are at the forefront of veterinary innovation and bring a wealth of knowledge to your pets' diagnostic and surgical challenges.

Specialty hospitals also have surgical, diagnostic and treatment options and equipment that may not be available at your referring veterinary hospital and these options can have a profound impact on your pet's treatment and its outcome.

At VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital, we don't just have surgical specialists. We also have a wide variety of specialists who focus on other areas of veterinary medicine. So if your furry friend turns out to need a neurologist instead of a surgical specialist we can take care of that too.

If your pet is facing surgery and you think a specialist may be a good choice, here are some questions you may wish to ask your referring veterinarian:

  • How often have you performed this type of surgery?
  • Does the surgery require any special equipment?
  • Is the equipment available?
  • Does my pet's surgery require a specialist?
  • What should I expect the outcome of the surgery to be?
  • What follow up care is necessary?
