Surgical Services at Brentwood Veterinary Clinic
We offer a wide range of surgical procedures for cats and dogs at our Brentwood clinic, using stringent surgical protocols.
During each surgery, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet using electronic patient monitoring equipment. Pain management will also be provided.
Post-operative monitoring and pain management are our priorities following surgery. Your vet will also provide thorough instructions for at-home care.
What to Expect from Surgery
We want to make sure you are fully informed before choosing to move forward with a surgical procedure. We make sure you are aware of why we are recommending it along with any post-operative care you may be required to perform.
At Brentwood Veterinary Clinic, we perform medical and emergency surgeries to help treat disease and conditions in pets or to repair injuries sustained through trauma.
Our Brentwood vets routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
For pets suffering from ear, nose, and throat disorders, we offer soft tissue surgical procedures.
These procedures are also available for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders.
- Spaying & Neutering
When we spay or neuter a cat or dog, we surgically sterilize them to prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.
During Cesarean sections, we surgically remove puppies or kittens from their mother's uterus.
C-sections are typically performed when the mother is unable to give birth naturally.
If your pet is experiencing pain, redness, or other symptoms in or around their eyes, they may need ocular surgery.
Common ocular procedures for cats and dogs include eyelid tumor removal, cataract surgery, ectropion surgery, entropion surgery, exenteration of the orbit, and cherry eye surgery.
If your cat or dog requires a veterinary surgical specialist to perform the surgery, our veterinarians will refer you to a pet surgeon near Brentwood and work closely with your animal surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.
Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burnt, torn, or otherwise damaged.
It's imperative for these wounds to be cleaned, disinfected, and appropriately cared for by a qualified veterinarian as soon as possible.
- Orthopedic Surgery
Orthopedic surgeries correct injuries and diseases of the bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other skeletal structures in your pet.
TPLO - Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy
This orthopedic surgery is used to stabilize a dog's stifle (what we would call a knee), when their Cranial Cruciate Ligament has torn or ruptured after acute trauma or long-term degeneration. Our vets can help your dog regain their mobility after suffering this serious injury.
If your dog or cat is suffering from a condition or injury that requires advanced specialized care your vet will refer your dog or cat to a vet surgeon near Brentwood.
- Dental Surgery
Our veterinarians provide dental surgeries for dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.
The Surgery Process
We understand that the prospect of bringing your pet in for surgery can be frightening. Please be assured that we only recommend surgery when it is in the best interests of your furry companion.
We will ensure that you fully understand why we are recommending surgery and that you are comfortable making the decision to move ahead.
If your pet requires advanced care, our vets will refer you to a veterinary surgeon near Brentwood, and work closely with your vet surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.
Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the specifics of the procedure, complete a physical examination of the patient, and make sure blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the vet in order to determine if your pet faces any risk of anesthesia-related complications.
Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are performed in a dedicated surgical suite. This room is kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.
Surgical attire. Our staff wears disposable caps and masks at all times when they are in the surgical suite. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Sterile packs and equipment. We carefully clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment prior to every surgery.
