Our skilled Santa Clarita veterinarians offer a variety of surgical procedures to help treat disease, repair injuries caused by trauma and prevent the birth of unwanted litters. The surgical procedures offered at Valencia Veterinary Center include soft tissue surgery, spay & neuter procedures and dental surgery.
Our skilled veterinarians are proud to offer elective and urgent surgical procedures for cats and dogs at our Santa Clarita clinic, using stringent surgical protocols.
Throughout each surgery, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet's vitals using electronic patient monitoring equipment. Pain management will also be provided to ensure that your beloved pet is kept comfortable both during and after the procedure.
Before taking your pet home, your veterinarian will provide you with thorough instructions on how to care for your animal as they recover from surgery, including when to administer medications and when to return for your pet's follow-up appointment.

The Surgery Process
Rest assured that we recommend surgery only when it is in the best interests of your four-legged friend. 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 Santa Clarita, 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.
