General Surgery

From spay and neuter services to more complex veterinary surgical procedures, your neighborhood Banfield Pet Hospital always operates with safety in mind.

In fact, we use many of the same safety measures as human hospitals. Performing most of the pre‐surgery blood work at our in-house lab, we are able to make sure your pet is healthy enough for the procedure.

Depending on the urgent nature of the surgery, pre‐surgical abnormalities will be addressed, drug selections may be modified and sometimes surgeries are postponed or even canceled until the surgical team feels the surgery is safe to perform.

Once anesthesia is deemed safe for the patient, we use specialized monitoring equipment to track vital signs and pay close attention to ensure the best possible outcome for your pet.

Below you'll find a list of common procedures for cats and dogs, along with links to important information about veterinary surgery.
