Conejo Valley Veterinary Hospital


Our highly skilled veterinary team is experienced in the most common veterinary surgical procedures. We perform spays and neuters, tumor removal, and abdominal surgeries, all under the safest possible anesthetic and with the utmost attention to patient monitoring.

We strive to make our patients and their families as comfortable as possible, from your pre-surgical consultation to your pet’s dismissal and aftercare. We’re with you every step of the way, applying our commitment and expertise to ensure a safe procedure and a speedy recovery.

Our surgeries include the following:

  • State-of-the-art equipment to monitor your pet’s heart, lungs, oxygen saturation levels, temperature, and blood pressure

  • Pain management before, during, and after your pet’s surgery

  • A veterinary technician to monitor your pet throughout his or her surgical process, from placing him or her under anesthesia, through the surgical procedure, and during his or her recovery from anesthesia

  • Performing surgery throughout the day including Saturdays

The veterinarian or the veterinary surgical nurse will call you with an update once your pet has recovered from anesthesia. We understand that it can be very stressful when your pet is in surgery. Therefore, you are always welcome to call at anytime to get an update on your pet from our caring hospital staff.

Important information for your pet's surgery:

  • No food after 8:00 p.m. the day before the surgery.

  • It is OK to leave water out for your pet prior to surgery.

  • Admittance time is usually 7:30 a.m. – 8:00 a.m., but can always be specially arranged with advanced notice.

  • Please notify us of any medications given 24 hours prior to surgery.

  • We may require an exam and pre-anesthetic bloodwork if your pet has not been seen by us recently.

  • Depending on the type of surgery your pet is receiving, he or she may be required to spend the night with us for further monitoring of his or her recovery. Your veterinarian will discuss this with you at your pre-surgical visit.
