Pet Surgery

Surgery at Calabasas Veterinary Center

At Calabasas Veterinary Center we are proud of our surgical suites, which are modeled after those at the prestigious Cedars Sinai Hospital. Both operatories are positive pressure rooms, meaning that airflow always exits the room, creating a dust barrier and maintaining sterility within.
  • Calabasas Veterinary Center offers soft tissue surgery, cancer surgery, spay and neuter, treatment of eyelid masses, and orthopedic surgery.
  • All patients receive intravenous fluid therapy, cardiac and respiratory monitoring, oxygen saturation measurement, EKG, and audible breathing pattern devices during anesthesia.
  • Pre-operative laboratory testing is routinely performed, including the evaluation of blood clotting times. Intraoperatively, patients are intensively monitored.
  • Gas anesthesia with medical grade 100% oxygen is routinely used.
  • Recovery is in a quiet, warm environment and pain management is our major priority. Many surgeries can be costly.
  • Post-operatively, all patients receive Cold Laser Therapy treatment to assist in recovery and pain management
  • Calabasas Veterinary Center provides a detailed estimate of charges in advance so that pet owners have no surprises at checkout time.

Spay/Neuter at Calabasas Veterinary Center

At Calabasas Veterinary Center, we offer a professional practice for spaying and neutering your pets. The reason is that we want your pet to undergo these surgical procedures in a clean safe environment.

  • Each animal gets its own individual surgery pack, no sharing of instruments as can happen in low-cost assembly line practices.
  • A Sterile technique for each animal with a veterinary technician overseeing each patient’s anesthesia on a one to one basis.
  • Pain management is a priority, and, although most animals manifest little pain from these procedures, we always dispense medication to be sure they experience the absolute minimum discomfort.
  • It is your decision when to spay/neuter your pet but our doctors will be happy to explain the pros and cons of spaying or neutering and at what age.
  • Most of the time you can pick up your pet the same day.

Please call or contact us online for spaying and neutering prices and any further questions.
