Animal Surgery at Petaluma Veterinary Hospital

Dr. Smith doing major surgery

Our veterinarians perform routine to advanced animal surgery in our hospital surgical suite. To insure the best possible outcomes, we occasionally bring in specialists (board-certified veterinary surgeons) to perform the more complex surgeries. When advanced equipment or training will be beneficial, we refer cases to outside specialists.

Our Petaluma Veterinary Hospital team takes every precaution so that your pet receives the highest-quality surgical and post-op care. We perform a physical exam and pre-anesthetic testing before surgery, monitor your pet during surgery, and provide appropriate pain medication to keep your pet comfortable during recovery.

Our doctors are qualified to perform numerous surgeries, including but not limited to:

Ovariohysterectomy (spay)
Castration (neuter)
Dental cleanings (including extractions)
Growth or mass removal
Cruciate ligament repair
Cherry Eye repair
Cystotomy, enterotomy, exploratory laparotomy
Ear hematoma repair
​​​​​​​Eye enucleation.
