We offer a wide range of surgical procedures for cats and dogs at our San Jose clinic, following rigorous surgical protocols.
During every surgery, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and continually monitor your pet using electronic patient monitoring equipment. Pain management will also be given.
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 Surgery
We always keep you fully informed about why we are proposing a surgical operation and regarding any post-operative care you will need to give your pet at home. We practice stringent surgical protocols here at Bloom Plaza Animal Clinic.
At Bloom Plaza Animal Clinic, we perform medical and emergency surgeries to help treat disease and conditions in pets or to repair injuries sustained through trauma.
Our San Jose vets routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
For pets suffering from ear, nose, and throat disorders, we offer soft tissue surgical procedures.
These procedures are also available for urogenital, hepatic, oncological, gastrointestinal, cardiothoracic, and skin disorders.
- Spaying & Neutering
When we spay or neuter a cat or dog, we surgically sterilize them to prevent the birth of unwanted puppies or kittens and reduce the risk of disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.
During Caesarean sections, we surgically remove puppies or kittens from their mother's uterus.
C-sections are performed when the mother can't or is struggling to give birth naturally.
If your pet is experiencing pain, redness or other symptoms in or around their eyes, they may need ocular surgery.
Common ocular procedures for cats and dogs include eyelid tumor removal, cataract surgery, ectropion surgery, entropion surgery, exenteration of the orbit and cherry eye surgery.
If your cat or dog requires a veterinary surgical specialist to perform the surgery, our veterinarians will refer you to a pet surgeon near San Jose and work closely with your animal surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.
- 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 in San Jose.
- Foreign Body
Sometimes, foreign objects are ingested or can get stuck inside a cat's or dog's body.
Whether your pet has eaten an object they shouldn't have or an accident has left them injured, we can perform foreign body surgery to remove it.
In some cases, specialized skills or equipment are needed to perform pet surgery. If that is the case for your animal, your vet will refer you to a cat or dog surgeon near San Jose and work closely with your veterinary surgeon to ensure that your dog or cat receives the very best 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.
- 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 thought of bringing your pet in for surgery can be terrifying. Please be assured that we recommend surgery only when it is in the best interest of your pet.
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 or specialized care that our team does not offer such as veterinary orthopedic surgery, our vets will refer you to a veterinary surgeon near San Jose, 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.
