One of the most common surgeries performed in companion animals in this country are spays and neuters. Even though this surgery may be considered routine, there is still a degree of risk in performing any anesthetic procedure and surgery. If you decide to neuter your pet, trust that your pet is in good hands with our experienced and gentle surgeons at Calabasas Animal Clinic. We recommend pre-anesthetic bloodwork, which could indicate a serious problem which could alter how your pet metabolizes the anesthetic medications. We also deliver appropriate pain, anti-inflammatory medications, and anti-anxiety medications as indicated to help relieve the stress and pain associated with surgery. We offer intravenous catheter placement, advanced anesthetic monitoring, fluid support, and warming support to ease your pets surgical visit and ensure the health of your beloved companion during his or her neuter or spay.
