General Surgery

VCA West Los Angeles Animal Hospital offers may general surgery services. General surgery includes a variety of common and elective procedures performed under general anesthesia. Examples of common surgeries include the following: spay (ovariohysterectomy or ovariectomy), neuter (castration), lump removal and biopsy, laceration repair, abscess and wound repair, and skin biopsy.

These procedures are typically performed using general anesthesia. Please refer to our Anesthesia Services for additional information.

We routinely use pain management medication in our general surgeries to ensure your pet's comfort. Refer to our Pain Management Services for a detailed description. Ask your veterinarian if you have questions about our General Surgery Services.
