    C-sections are an option if for some reason your pet is unable to give birth naturally.

    Ocular surgery is used to treat pets that are suffering from pain, redness or other symptoms in or around their eyes.

    Some of the most common ocular procedures for pets include eyelid tumor removal, cataract surgery, ectropion surgery, entropion surgery, exenteration of the orbit and cherry eye surgery.

    Masses under the skin are a common condition among pets. While typically harmless, it is also possible for these masses to grow inside your pet's body and can potentially be serious or life-threatening.

    Mass removal surgery is commonly performed at our hospital.

    At some point, your pet may experience having an object either internally or embedded into their body.

    If your pet has had an accident or has swallowed a foreign object, our vets are able to surgically remove the object from your pet's body.

    If the object requires specialized equipment then your vet will refer you to a pet surgeon near Gardena who will provide thorough care for your beloved pet.

    Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burnt, torn, or otherwise damaged.

    These wounds require the care of a veterinarian to clean, disinfect and otherwise treat promptly after the injury occurs in order to prevent further injury or infection.
