VCA Advanced Care Animal Hospital

Bedford Spay and Neuter

Unless your dog or cat is a show animal, he or she should be spayed or neutered before six months of age. This helps prevent medical problems such as mammary and genital cancer, and behavior problems such as marking and inappropriate urination.

We perform pre-screening labwork to be sure that your pet's liver, kidneys, and other internal organs are functioning properly. We offer intravenous fluids for all procedures to ensure that your pet stays hydrated with an adequate blood pressure throughout the day. One of our veterinarians will devise an anesthetic plan that is customized to best fit your pet's needs. During each procedure, your pet's respiration, blood pressure, electrocardiogram, temperature, heart rate and blood oxygenation levels are monitored and recorded continuously. Your pet is also monitored closely as he wakes after the procedure until he goes home that evening. The surgical nurse assigned to your pet that day coordinates the scheduling, care and monitoring of all surgery patients.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
