Surgery/Laser Surgery

Are you feeling nervous about your pet’s upcoming surgical procedure?

Bringing a family member in for surgery is never easy. At Westside Animal Hospital, we know exactly what you’re going through because we’re pet owners too. Rest assured that we’ll do everything in our power to ensure that your loved one’s procedure is as stress-free as possible.

Pre-Surgical Care

Our surgical care begins with comprehensive preoperative screening, which helps us reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We’ll also establish a safe, effective plan to keep your pet comfortable and pain-free – before, during and following surgery.


Whether routine or advanced, your pet’s surgical procedure will be our top priority. From the moment you arrive, we’ll be there to ease your mind and help keep your pet calm and relaxed. 

Once safely sedated, we will complete the surgery as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated support staff will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your companion’s wellbeing. 

Laser Surgery

Over the past several decades, great strides have been made in terms of the technology we use to manage the health of our pets. One such advancement has been the use of laser surgery to replace traditional scalpel procedures. The laser uses highly concentrated light waves to ablate the skin while simultaneously sealing capillaries, blood vessels and nerve endings. Laser technology offers great versatility and incredible precision. Using a laser to conduct a surgical procedure provides many benefits to the patient, including:

  • Less bleeding
  • Less pain
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Faster recovery time

After Care

After surgery, we’ll gently relocate your pet to our quiet recovery area, where our staff will continue to provide comfort and reassurance. 

When you arrive to pick up your pet, we will go over our aftercare instructions, including a plan for pain management. 

Surgery doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety, especially if you’ve got the compassionate, experienced team at Westside Animal Hospital in your corner. Contact us today and let’s discuss how we can help with all of your companion’s surgical care needs.

This was my first visit and I am happy with the vet and the attention they gave my cat Lucy..she is afraid of strangers yet she didn't pitch a fit ..she let them handle her with no problems and her not being stressed is highly important...I don't see her eye watering after one dose of drops and after 2 doses of antibiotics she has not sneezed..the meds are 10days but the Dr definitely knows his stuff
