Our veterinary team in Moreno Valley performs a wide array of veterinary surgeries, including soft tissue surgery, orthopedic surgery, spays & neuters, c-sections and more.
We offer a wide variety of surgical procedures for dogs, cats and more at our Moreno Valley veterinary clinic using state-of-the-art procedures and protocols.
In the course of each of our surgeries, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet using our electronic patient monitoring equipment, as well as provide pain management.
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 SurgeryWe will always keep you fully informed about why we are recommending a given surgical procedure. We will also explain any pre- or post-operative care you will need to provide your pet with once they are home. We practice exacting surgical safety procedures.
At Sunnymead Veterinary Clinic, we perform veterinary surgeries in both emergency and non-emergency situations in order to treat illness and injury sustained through trauma.
Our Moreno Valley vets routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
For pets suffering from disorders affecting their throat, nose, ears and more, our vets offer soft tissue surgeries.
These procedures are also available for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders.
- Spaying & Neutering
When we spay or neuter a dog or cat, we surgically sterilize them in order to prevent disease and provide them with an increased life expectancy.
During Caesarean 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.
- Mass Removal
Cats and dogs can develop masses associated with the skin. Masses can also grow inside a body cavity and can be serious or life-threatening.
Mass removal surgery is a fairly common procedure for both cats and dogs.
- Foreign Body
On occasion, foreign objects can become stuck in your pet's body.
Whether your pet has eaten something they shouldn't have, or an accident has left them injured, we are able to perform foreign body surgery in order to remove the object.
In some instances, your pet will require specialized skill or equipment. If this is so, we will be more than happy to refer you to a dog or sat surgeon in the Moreno Valley area and will work closely with them 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 that these wounds 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. 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 Moreno Valley.
- 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 recommend surgery only 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 Moreno Valley, 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 wear 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.
