Your Pet's Surgery at Camino Real Pet Clinic

Camino Real Pet ClinicDr. Gyulassy and the entire Burlingame veterinary team at Camino Real Pet Clinic understand that the decision to allow your dog or cat to undergo surgery is never an easy one. For your pet's safety and your peace of mind, we follow the strictest surgical guidelines, including a pro-active pain management regimen to keep your pet as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Perhaps the most important pre-surgical step is to discuss why we believe a particular procedure is necessary and what it entails. Our veterinarians will provide you with information on proper postoperative care and answer any questions you may have so that you feel comfortable knowing you are making the right choice for your pet.

Surgical Procedures at Our Pet Clinic in Burlingame

Our highly-skilled and experienced veterinarians perform many types of surgeries, including but not limited to:

  • Spays and neuters
  • Mass removals
  • Ear hematomas
  • Tail and toe amputations
  • Wound and abscess repair

Should your pet require a cystotomy, difficult mass removal, or orthopedic surgery, we refer to Sage veterinary specialty and emergency care hospital in San Mateo.

Customized Anesthesia

Ensuring the health and safety of your pet during surgery is our utmost concern and requires an anesthetic and monitoring regimen that adheres to the highest principles and ideals of quality care. We utilize a multi-parameter monitoring and anesthesia system to ensure your pet's safety during all surgeries.

Prior to surgery, your pet is examined and a pre-surgical blood screen is performed. The results of these tests and your pet's past anesthetic history, breed, preexisting conditions, and age are used to create an individualized anesthesia protocol for your pet. For your pet's complete comfort, we also use local anesthetics, opioids and NSAIDs, as well as topical anesthetics such as bupivacaine, proparacaine and lidocaine.

During surgery, your pet is cared for by a well-trained and experienced veterinary technician using our state-of-the-art monitoring system which tracks blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature and oxygen level.

Post-Op care for PetsComprehensive Pain Management

We all know that pain hurts, but pain also has many other detrimental effects on your pet's body. Pain slows healing, decreases activity and causes behavioral changes (such as aggression, anxiety and depression). Pain worsens diseases like arthritis and potentially some cancers. It also interferes with the bond between you and your pet.

As part of our commitment to keep your pet comfortable and protect the bond you both share, we practice the most up-to-date and comprehensive pain management protocol. For surgeries as well as for acute and chronic conditions we use multi-modal pain control, including opioids, local anesthetics, NSAIDs (non-steroidal medications) and oral and injectable analgesics for the complete comfort of your pet.

Healing Postoperative Care

As your pet is being discharged from the hospital, you will be provided with detailed information on how to properly care for your pet at home after surgery. We are also happy to answer any questions or concerns that may arise once you get your pet home.
