We always do our best to recommend the least invasive treatments that will still be effective for all of our patients. Surgery, however, is still sometimes necessary. Our veterinarians at Valencia Veterinary Center understand how stressful it can be when your pet needs surgery. We do our best to put your mind at ease by answering all of your questions and keeping you informed, while also ensuring your pet experiences a smooth procedure and a speedy recovery.
Soft Tissue and Orthopedic Pet Surgery in Valencia
Our veterinary surgeons and surgical suite are equipped to accommodate a variety of soft tissue and orthopedic procedures.
Prior to your pet’s surgery, we’ll schedule a pre-surgery appointment. During this appointment, we’ll perform a physical examination and run blood tests to ensure your pet is healthy enough to undergo the procedure and general anesthesia. We will also provide you with pre-surgery instructions for administering any necessary medications or restricting food and water prior to your pet’s procedure.
During your pet’s surgery, our staff uses only high-quality medications in addition to state-of-the-art surgical tools and monitoring equipment to ensure a safe procedure. We will notify you as soon as your pet is out of the operating room and in recovery.
Depending on your pet’s surgery, he or she may or may not be able to return home the same day. Once your pet is able to return home, we’ll provide you with instructions for aftercare that will facilitate a safe, speedy, and comfortable recovery.
Surgical Recovery and Pet Rehabilitation in Valencia
Following surgery, most pets will benefit from cold laser therapy sessions to accelerate healing while minimizing pain and inflammation. Having undergone orthopedic surgery or an injury repair surgery, a pet’s recovery process might also benefit from hydrotherapy sessions to regain stability, range of motion, and mobility on our underwater treadmill.
