Surgery

To extend the health and lives of our patients, the doctors of Los Robles Animal Hospital are available to perform a wide range of surgical procedures, including:

  • Spays and Neuters
  • Soft Tissue Surgery
  • Hematoma and Laceration Repair
  • Orthopedic Surgery

Prior to surgery, your pet will be scheduled for bloodwork as well as a comprehensive exam with Dr. Donofro, Dr. Appel, or Dr. Huffman. During this appointment, one of our experienced surgical technicians will also meet with you to review your pet’s pre-surgical instructions and answer any questions you may have.

The morning of their procedure, a surgical technician will admit your companion, be sure all necessary forms are signed, and discuss your pet’s agenda. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to address them with your pet’s technician at this time.

All patients admitted for surgery are briefly examined prior to their procedure by their surgeon. Once anesthetized, their heart and respiratory rates, oxygen level, blood pressure, and temperature are all monitored carefully by a skilled surgical technician. So our patients’ tempertures are regulated, they are placed on a heated water-blanket and surrounded with circulating warmed air during surgery.

When your pet’s surgery is complete, they are removed from our surgical suite and recovered on a soft, warm bed with their post operative technician. All of our post-surgical patients have their vitals monitored thoroughly until the time their pet-parents take them home. We will also monitor your pet for any signs of discomfort and provide post-operative medication to minimize pain and inflammation.

Upon your pets dismissal, a technician will provide you with written post-operative care instructions and discuss any notes from the surgeon. We will also ask that you schedule an appointment for the following day so we can assess how your pet’s healing and be sure they’re comfortable.

If you’d like to schedule a surgical procedure for your four-legged friend or have any inquiries, please call us at (850) 222-3117.

  • "Wow! Thanks to all the staff at Anderson Vet Clinic. I feel like you all truly love what you do! My kitty, Lola and I always have such a pleasant experience when we come in.

You clearly are an expert in your field...thanks so much!"
