Does your pet need surgery?

At Central Marin Animal Hospital, we recognize that even routine surgery is serious business. For most pet parents, bringing their animal family member in for an operation can be stressful. You want to be sure that your loved one will be in good hands. We want you to feel confident that when you trust us with the surgical care of your pet, you’ve made a good decision.

Our doctors are experienced in using modern techniques and equipment to perform a wide variety of pet surgeries with the utmost attention given to safety and comfort. Whether it’s a simple spay or neuter or a complex, life-saving procedure, we’ll go above and beyond to maximize the quality of your pet’s surgery.

Pre-Surgical Preparation

While advancements have been made to make anesthesia safer for pets, some risks still exist. To lessen these concerns, we recommend thorough pre-surgical screening. This helps to reduce the chance of complications ahead of time. We’ll also develop a customized pain management plan that will be tailor-made specifically for your pet. The more preparation we do before your pet’s surgery, the smoother the entire process will go.

Surgical Care

Our attention to detail and thorough prep work continues on the day of your pet’s surgery. We will make every effort to keep your pet as calm and relaxed as possible. We find that this results in a better experience for everyone involved. Once safely sedated, your pet’s surgery will begin. The doctor will work diligently to complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. Meanwhile, our highly trained technicians and support staff will remain on hand to monitor your companion’s wellbeing and assist with surgery as needed.

Some of the surgeries we’ve performed over the years include:

  • Spay/neuter
  • Exploratory/diagnostic surgery
  • Lump removals
  • Bone repair
  • Oral surgery

We also have the ability to consult with several veterinary surgical specialists to maximize the quality of care available to your pet.


When your pet’s surgery is over, we will contact you as soon as possible. In most cases, your pet will be ready to be picked up the same day as surgery. When you arrive, we will explain our after-care instructions, including a plan for keeping your companion as pain-free as possible during the recovery process. Should any questions arise once you’ve returned home, help is just a phone call away.
