Surgical Services

On the day your pet is scheduled for an in-hospital procedure (surgery, dental, diagnostic testing, etc.), a Veterinary Technician will meet with you to discuss the procedures to be performed, answer questions or concerns and go over all forms. A Cost estimate and Pre-anesthetic lab work will be performed prior to the scheduled procedure. Additionally on the day of procedure, the Veterinarian will perform a complete physical examination and any concerns will be discussed with you prior to the procedure, so it is important that you are available by phone should the doctor need to reach you. We have a highly trained team that will provide exceptional care of your pet while in our facility. After the procedure, you will receive a phone call updating you on the status of your pet. Upon discharge, a Veterinary Technician will review the care that your pet will require at home with you. A written summary of these instructions will be provided as well.


At All Creatures Hospital serving Del Mar, Carmel Valley, and the surrounding areas, we provide safe and effective pet surgeries. We understand this may be a frightening time for you, and our veterinarians are here to answer any of your questions and concerns.

Spay and Neuter

Spaying your female pet and neutering your male pet are very common surgeries. In a spay, a veterinarian will remove the uterus and ovaries of a female pet to prevent her from cycling. In a neuter a veterinarian will remove the testes of a male pet, preventing him from impregnating female pets.

Cancer Surgery

Just like humans, pets can develop various types of cancer. If your pet is stricken with an illness such as cancer, a veterinarian may recommend surgery to remove the cancerous tumors. This will ease your pet’s pain and increase his life expectancy.

Cataract Surgery

Sometimes pets can develop cataracts, which are cloudy areas in the normally clear lens of your pet's eye. If not treated early, these areas will grow larger and cloud your pet's vision. Veterinarians can remove cataracts with safe surgery, restoring vision quickly for your pet.

Dental Surgery

If your pet has bad teeth due to plaque, severe tartar build-up, or some other complication causing infected gums and teeth, a veterinarian can perform dental surgery. We can also extract any loose or infected teeth, giving your pet a healthy mouth for years to come.
