At West Villa Animal Hospital, we understand that it can be stressful to have your family pet come in for surgery. We strive to make each surgical experience a positive one for both you and your pet. Our veterinary surgeons are experienced in a variety of surgeries and are adept at monitoring your pets during surgery to ensure your pet’s safety and comfort. Our veterinary technician staff are professionally trained to assist the veterinarians in surgery and to ensure careful and continous monitoring of the anesthetic during surgery.
General Surgery - We are dedicated to providing high quality surgical care for routine surgeries, such as spaying and neutering, as well as for a variety of more complex surgeries. Our highly trained, compassionate staff will monitor your pet before, during, and after surgery to ensure a safe and complete recovery. We have a designated recovery room, where any recovery needs will be addressed until your pet is ready to go home. Upon discharge, we will review with you the discharge instructions during the postoperative period and discuss any medications. Pain management is an essential part of the entire surgical intervention plan, and we do our best to ensure that your pet is as comfortable as possible.
We always welcome questions from the pet owner and encourage you to call us after your pet goes home if you have any questions.
Orthopedic Surgery - We do perform a variety of orthopedic procedures at West Villa Animal Hospital. Dr. Larsen’s special interest in orthopedics coupled with his many hours of specialized training in this area enable him to successfully perform a number of procedures both for our clients and as well as upon referral from other veterinarians in the area.
