We offer advanced surgical techniques, such as laparoscopic surgery and laparoscopic spay and neuter surgery.

For more information about laparoscopic surgery, please visit our laparoscopic procedures page.

Prior to surgery, all pets are carefully screened through an exam and pre-surgical blood work, and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. We recommend pre-surgical blood work so we can evaluate your pet’s kidney, liver and heart function prior to undergoing anesthesia.

At Animal Hospital at Baldwin Park, we take your pet’s pain very seriously and utilize a multi-modal approach to pain management. We offer pain medication before, during and after your pet’s procedure to maximize the comfort of your pet.
