Surgery

Surgery on our four-legged family members is a serious matter, even if the procedure is something routine and common. You care about your pet and want them to be as safe and comfortable as possible, while also provided with the best possible outcome. At Vineyard Veterinary Hospital, we know the feelings of uncertainty and concern you’re experiencing. Why? Because each one of us has been in your shoes. That’s why we work so hard to make surgeries performed at our hospital as positive and stress-free an experience as possible. We want you to feel confident that from the moment you drop your pet off for surgery, to the time you arrive to bring them home, they will be in caring, capable hands.

Our highly skilled surgeons are experienced in performing a broad range of surgical services, from routine operations to more complex procedures. We use the most up to date surgical techniques, and rely on modern equipment and cutting edge technology to ensure that your pet will receive the best available care at all times – before, during and following surgery. Even the anesthetic products we use are considered to be the safest, most effective available. This allows us to keep your pet as comfortable as possible while also minimizing risk at every turn.

Before we ever even step foot in our surgical suite to operate on your pet, thorough pre-anesthetic testing will be conducted to make sure he or she is well enough to proceed. We never want to place our patients at unnecessary risk, so it’s especially important that we verify that pets who are older or those who suffer from existing medical conditions are healthy enough to receive anesthesia and undergo surgery. When we know it’s safe to proceed, we’ll develop a customized pain management plan that is tailored specifically to your pet.

During your pet’s surgery, the veterinarian will work as diligently and efficiently as possible to move the procedure along and provide for optimum results. Our care team, made up of highly skilled technicians and assistants, will remain on hand to assist with surgery as needed, and to monitor your pet’s wellbeing at all times using modern monitoring equipment. We’ll also keep a close eye on pain control to make sure your companion remains as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure.

Following surgery, we’ll continue to monitor your pet as we relocate them to our quiet recovery area. Someone from our team will call you, explain how everything went and let you know when your pet will be ready to be picked up. Before leaving with your pet, we’ll go over our after care instructions, answer any questions you may have and discuss whether pain control may be necessary to help your animal companion recover comfortably at home.

The surgical services performed at Vineyard Veterinary hospital include:

  • Spays
  • Neuters
  • Soft Tissue Surgery
  • General Surgery
  • Orthopedic Procedures

Above all else, when it comes to surgical care, we want you to know that your pet’s safety and comfort are always our highest priority. Let us set your mind at ease and provide your companion with the best available care. We’ll do everything we can to have them fixed up and on the road to a full and speedy recovery as soon as possible.

      I had to take my senior dog in for an emergency, the staff was outstanding as I really didn't think my baby was coming home. They were so understanding and kind!! This is the only place I would take my fur baby to. Thank you for your excellent service and compassion.

      In the last 10 years Dr. Totman has cared for all of my fur babies with expertise and compassion that is unparalleled in Temecula. The happiest day is when you get your pet, the saddest day is when you say goodbye to your pet. And with all the things that happen to your pet then and in between, you want expert care in a family-owned environment vs. a corporate sales-oriented one. No one wants to think of that worst day. When that day comes though, as it did for me this week, you want a vet and staff who is sensitive to your pet's needs, comfort, and your grief. You want a vet who loves his patient, and you get that with Dr. Totman and his staff.
