Our veterinary team performs a number of surgical procedures for Torrance and Carson pets. From soft tissue surgery and spaying & neutering, to orthopedic and ocular surgeries, we strive to provide the highest quality veterinary care.
Experienced Surgical Care
We offer a number of different surgical procedures for dogs and cats at Torrance Companion Animal Hospital using surgical techniques and strict safety protocols.
During each surgery, a dedicated team member will administer anesthesia and monitor your pet using advanced patient monitoring equipment. We will also be sure to provide pain management services.
After the procedure is completed, post-operative monitoring and continued pain management are our top priority. Once your pet is able to return home with you, we will also provide with with post-operative instructions for you to follow to help ensure their speedy and safe recovery.
What to Expect from Surgery
Our veterinary team will always make sure we keep you informed as to why we are recommending surgery for your pet and up to date on what you can do for post-operative care. We also follow strict surgical protocols at our clinic.
At Torrance Companion Animal Hospital, our vets routinely perform some of the following surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
We offer soft tissue surgical procedures for pets suffering from ear, throat and nose disorders.
These kinds of procedures can also be used to treat cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, urogenital, oncological, hepatic and skin disorders.
If your pet is experiencing pain and redness among other symptoms in and around their eyes, they may need ocular surgery.
In dogs and cats, common ocular surgical procedures include, cataract surgery, entropion surgery, eyelid tumor removal, cherry eye surgery and exenteration of the orbit.
Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burnt, torn or otherwise damaged.
Its is incredibly important that such injuries be cleaned, disinfected and cared for appropriately by a professional as soon as possible.
- Orthopedic Surgery
Injuries to and diseases of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and other skeletal structures in your pet are treated by orthopedic surgery.
- Spaying & Neutering
When spaying or neutering a cat or dog, our veterinary team surgically sterilizes them in order to prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.
- Dental Surgery
Our veterinary team provides dental surgeries for dogs and cats. These surgeries can address issues ranging from gum disease and tooth decay to jaw fracture repairs.
The Surgery Process
The prospect of bringing in your pet for surgery can be an anxiety-inducing one. Rest assured, though, that we only recommend surgery if it is the best option for your companion animal.
We will also ensure that we communicate our reasons for recommending surgery , and that we do everything we are able to in order to make you as comfortable as possible throughout the process.
Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. We will provide the specifics of the procedure your pet will be undergoing, conduct a physical examination of the patient and ensure that blood tests have been completed and reviewed by our vets. This is to ensure it is safe for your pet to be put under anesthesia.
Dedicated surgical suites. We have a dedicated surgical suite that we use to conduct our surgical procedures. This room is kept sterile to prevent infection and any possible cross-contamination.
Surgical attire. Our staff wear disposable caps and surgical masks at all times to ensure that the surgical suite is as sterile as possible. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Sterile packs and equipment. We are careful to clean, sterilize and wrap all surgical instruments before they are used in a surgery.
New patients are always welcome.
We look forward to meeting your precious pet at Torrance Companion Animal Hospital.
