Veterinary Surgical Facilities

Our state-of-the-art veterinary surgical facility in Milpitas ensures procedures are as safe and efficient as possible. Our equipment, combined with the medical team's expertise, greatly reduce the risks of complications and allow us to perform surgical procedures quickly and accurately.

Pre-Surgery Exam

Before your pet undergoes any surgical procedure, a thorough examination takes place. This exam includes a pre-surgical blood screen, which, along with your pet's anesthetic history, breed, preexisting conditions and age, will be used to determine a unique anesthesia protocol. These tests have the added benefit of establishing a baseline for the comparison of future blood tests, if needed in the future.


For most surgical procedures, anesthesia is required. While under anesthesia, your pet is continuously monitored by both staff and specialized anesthesia-monitoring technology. Your pet's blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature and oxygen level are all tracked during surgery.

Postoperative Care

Pain has many negative effects on pets that go beyond physical discomfort which we try and minimize as much as possible after surgery. Our furry companions don't understand why they are experiencing pain, pain can cause behavioral issues and strain the bond between you and your pet.

The exact protocol is tailored to each animal and depends on several factors that are determined by the pre-surgery exam and during the procedure.

The time spent monitoring your pet after surgery varies. When your pet is discharged, a staff member will provide you with information on proper home care after surgery. Often, your pet will be prescribed medication and we will explain how to give this to your pet at home.
