Frequently Asked Questions at Our Emergency Pet Hospital

Making decisions about pet surgery can be a stressful time in the life of both you and your animal companions. We know you may have questions, so we have provided responses to some of our most commonly received queries. If you have additional questions, please call us at: (818) 760-3882.

Do pets require dental surgery? Our emergency pet hospital may recommend dental surgery to deal with a problem such as a damaged or severely infected tooth. While antibiotics can control acute dental infections, an infected tooth may need to be extracted so that other teeth continue to thrive. Some pets may also have a problem with retained baby teeth that make it difficult for permanent teeth to grow in. The extraction of these baby teeth may be recommended to ensure the health of the permanent teeth. Cleaning and root planing under anesthesia is also considered a type of surgery.

Which surgeries are considered routine? Spay and neuter surgeries are among the most typical of all pet surgeries. These procedures remove the male or female reproductive organs, both to prevent unwanted pregnancy and to eliminate the risks of reproductive cancers. The dental cleaning procedure mentioned above is another routine wellness procedure aimed at reducing the risk of tooth and gum disease.

Which conditions call for emergency surgery? Our emergency pet hospital can perform many different types of emergency surgery. Conditions that call for these measures include severe bleeding, broken bones, organ damage, gastric dilatation volvulus (twisted stomach), and difficult labor. A tumor, stone, or other obstacle to normal internal function may also require immediate surgery at our emergency pet hospital in Studio City.

When might my pet need orthopedic surgery? Any injury or degenerative illness that affects your pet's joints may respond well to orthopedic surgery. Reconstructive knee surgery is a good example. Our veterinarian may recommend an ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) repair or a triple plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO). Pets with severe dysplasia may also benefit from hip surgery.

How should I prepare my pet for his surgery? If you have time to plan ahead for the surgery, make sure that our Studio city veterinarian administers any vaccinations that need to be updated. The night before the scheduled procedure at our emergency pet hospital, remove all food sources after your pet’s final meal of the day. This will help to ensure that he has an empty stomach for the surgery.

What happens after the surgery? Your pet may need to remain at our pet hospital for a period of observation. After you are allowed to bring him home, watch for any redness, swelling, bleeding or oozing that might indicate a possible complication. Our veterinary staff will schedule a follow up examination to make sure all is well.
