In veterinary medicine, reconstructive procedures are not beautifying procedures. Instead, reconstructive surgery is used to correct such painful and irritating conditions; to help with wound closures when not enough skin is available due to trauma, infection, or tumor removal; or to open up the nostrils in so-called ‘squishy faced’ breeds to allow for easier breathing.
At VCA West Los Angeles Animal Hospital, we have a special interest in these quality of life procedures, and our experience and exacting standards mean your pet will be getting the best care possible.
Some of the reconstructive surgeries performed include:
- Oral and Facial Procedures
- Airway/Respiratory Management
- Wound/Skin Grafting
- Deviated septum
- Nasal alar fold
