Your Pet's Surgery

Your Pet's Surgery

Surgery ServicesWe understand that surgery is not an easy experience for you or your pet. At Terra Linda Veterinary Hospital we strive to ensure your pet's surgical procedure is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. We endeavor to provide our clients with a clear understanding of why a particular procedure is necessary, what the procedure entails, proper post-operative care, and convey any other information you may need to feel comfortable that you are making the right choice for your pet.

Staffed by a team of highly trained veterinarians and experienced veterinary technicians, we are proud of the quality of surgical care we provide and the wide range of surgical procedures we offer. Beyond spays and neuters, Terra Linda Veterinary Hospital performs an array of soft tissue surgeries such as gastrointestinal, spleen, bladder, mass removals, and more.

A board certified veterinary surgical specialist is also available to come to our hospital and perform a range of complicated surgeries, such as orthopedic surgeries. This allows your pet to be treated in a familiar location and by staff he or she knows while receiving the best care possible.

We believe that identifying and relieving pain is important to the recovery of your pet. Therefore, pain management is an important aspect of our pre-surgical and post-surgical protocols. At discharge, we may send additional pain management medication home with you and your pet after providing a thorough explanation of its proper use and dosage.

Laser Surgery

Laser SurgeryTerra Linda Veterinary Hospital is able to offer laser surgery for a number of soft tissue procedures such as spays and neuters, mass removals and more. Laser surgery minimizes bleeding, reduces pain and swelling and promotes more rapid healing. When your pet undergoes laser surgery, he or she will face less post-operative pain and discomfort. Laser surgery also is more precise and greatly reduces the risk of infection.

Anesthesia & Monitoring

Anesthesia and cardiovascular monitoring are important, integral aspects of every surgery we perform. Anesthesia is individualized for your pet based on a number of factors, which includes the type of procedure, his or her preexisting conditions, blood test values, age, breed, and prior anesthetic experience.

During anesthesia and surgery, your pet is constantly monitored by a trained veterinary technician, using our advanced monitoring system. This system continuously monitors your pet's arterial oxygen level, blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and core body temperature.
