Expert Surgery and Pain Management for Your Pet

(415) 453-2080

At San Anselmo Animal Hospital we have a fully-equipped surgical suite with up-to-date and continuously maintained monitoring and temperature controlling devices. We actively monitor our patients during anesthetic procedures using multi-modal veterinary monitors, and we regulate your pet's body temperature post-surgery using Bair Hugger heating blankets. We routinely perform pet surgery procedures, such as spays, neuters, mass removals, cystotomies, and foreign body removal. In addition to in-house surgical capabilities, we frequently call on Dr. Rick Schwach to perform surgeries, such as orthopedic, abdominal and oncological surgeries, including TPLOs, lateral sutures, bone plating, femoral head excisions, fracture repairs and surgical treatment of laryngeal paralysis. Both before and after surgery, we provide pain management for your dog or cat ranging from local blocks that numb the surgical site to continuous rate infusions of strong pain medications. Our pain management strategies are always a top priority to alleviate any discomfort associated with a surgical procedure for your pet.
