VCA West Los Angeles Animal Hospital features dedicated surgical suites. Surgical suites are rooms designated for use during surgery only. These rooms are kept as clean as possible to minimize bacteria and other infectious organisms that would be capable of contaminating a surgical wound. Many surgical suites are designed with separate ventilation from the rest of the hospital as this helps maintain cleanliness of the room. All people entering the room must wear a cap and surgical mask to prevent spreading outside germs into the room. Surgical suites contain an operating table (sometimes more than one), surgical lighting, equipment tables, and anesthesia equipment.
