COMMON PROCEDURES

La Palma Veterinary Hospital offers a wide range of surgical procedures.  We always operate with your pet’s safety in mind.

We use many of the same safety measures that are used in human hospitals. We offer pre‐surgical blood work at our in-house lab to make sure your pet is healthy enough for the procedure.  In addition, we use specialized monitoring equipment to track vital signs and pay close attention to ensure the best possible outcome for your pet.

Depending on the urgent nature of the surgery, pre‐surgical abnormalities will be addressed, drug selections may be modified and sometimes surgeries are postponed or even canceled until the veterinarian feels the surgery is safe to perform.

 

We provide such common procedures such as:

  • Spay/neuter
  • Mass removals
  • Wound care
  • Gastrointestinal and urinary bladder procedures
