Highest Standard of Care
Animal Ark of Arcadia is uniquely positioned on the cutting edge of veterinary medicine. Our fully-equipped surgical suite provides a range of services from routine spays and neuters to more specialized procedures.
State of the Art
We can achieve positive outcomes thanks to advanced surgical techniques and innovative technology paired with adherence to strict safety protocols.
Your pet’s safety is our number one priority before, during, and after their surgical procedure. Prior to any procedure, we conduct and review blood work to ensure that your pet can tolerate anesthesia. If there are any possible risks or associated complications, we will discuss these in detail before moving forward.
We Support Pet Owners
We understand how frightening veterinary surgery can be for pet owners, and only recommend surgical procedures if it’s in your pet’s best interest. Knowing the specifics of your pet’s procedure, and how we approach every step, provides you with peace of mind. Every pet that we operate on is continuously monitored by a dedicated technician.
What You Can Expect
While under anesthesia, we monitor temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, EKG, and more to guarantee your pet’s well-being. We pride ourselves on going above and beyond the industry standard, and strive to anticipate and meet your pet’s every need while in our care.
Once your pet is out of surgery and in recovery, we continue to monitor their vitals and safety. Pain management is a priority in recovery. When pain is properly controlled, pets can heal faster. We will also go over in great detail the in’s and out’s of post-surgical home care and schedule follow up appointments to confirm your pet’s progress.
When Your Pet Needs Us
Animal Ark of Arcadia commonly performs the following elective and non-elective surgical procedures:
- Soft tissue
- Foreign body removal
- Mass removal
We recommend spaying and neutering for all pets. Dogs can be surgically sterilized as early as 4 months old, whereas cats should wait until 6 months old. Conducting this straightforward procedure as early as possible reduces many risks to a pet’s overall health. Older pets that undergo this surgery may experience more pain and a longer healing time.
Spaying and neutering our pets is an essential component of responsible ownership. Not only does this impact the numbers of unwanted litters and homeless pets, but spaying and neutering can reduce serious health problems, including cancer of the reproductive organs. Additionally, this surgery can change a pet’s behavior. If you notice escape attempts, roaming, aggression, spraying (marking), and mounting, spaying/neutering can resolve these related behaviors.
Always Here For You
As pet owners ourselves, we completely relate to the fears and anxieties that come up regarding veterinary surgery. From the moment surgery is recommended to the day a pet officially moves beyond the recovery period, our staff is here to help address all your concerns.
If your pet requires constant monitoring throughout the night, we can offer that in-house.
