Surgical Services

At Arrow Dog and Cat Hospital, our Montclair veterinarians Dr. Nichole Agarwal and Dr. Ayaka Ando, perform spay, neuter, orthopedic, emergency and dental surgeries in our state-of-the-art surgical center. Whether it is a routine spay or neuter procedure or a life-threatening emergency, you can count on our team’s years of experience to protect your pet’s health during surgery. To provide the most positive surgical experience possible, at Arrow Dog and Cat Hospital we follow strict guidelines for safety and pain management. Your pet’s health and comfort are our top priorities, just as they are yours.
Surgery at Our Animal Hospital
It is only natural to have questions before surgery for cats and dogs. Many pet owners worry about the use of anesthesia and ask if it is absolutely necessary. To alleviate concerns about the use of anesthesia, we conduct diagnostic blood tests prior to the procedure to ensure your pet is healthy enough to receive anesthesia. Your pet will be monitored closely by our team before, during and after the use of anesthesia.
Other questions that frequently arise include:
  • Can my pet eat before surgery? We recommend withholding food for at least 12 hours prior to the appointment. Your pet may have water.
  • How do I care for my pet after surgery? Our skilled team will review all post-operative care instructions with you before the animal is discharged. We can make suggestions on how to keep your pet quiet, how to administer pain management medications and educate you on the signs of post-surgery complications to watch out for.
  • Do I have to make an appointment for the spay-neuter clinic? Our Montclair spay and neuter clinic is a low-cost option available only to healthy pets. The clinic is open Wednesdays. Appointments are required and a $20 deposit is required.
  • What if I have more questions? Our animal hospital offices are open six days a week and we are happy to answer any questions you have before or after your pet’s surgery.
We understand that your pet is an important part of your family, and our entire team is dedicated to providing excellent care in all situations.
For regular wellness care, spay or neuter, orthopedic, dental or emergency surgery, we are your veterinarian in Montclair, CA.

Veterinary Dermatology

Veterinary Dermatology Treats Common Skin Conditions & Pet Allergies
If your pet is frequently itching, scratching or biting his skin, he may be suffering from an allergy or skin condition. Veterinary dermatology treats common skin conditions and pet allergies, addressing both the underlying cause for your pet’s discomfort as well as providing immediate relief from painful symptoms. Our veterinarians Dr. Ando and Dr. Agarwal have significant experience treating pet allergies and skin conditions. Our advanced diagnostic tests make it easier for our veterinary dermatology team to precisely identify the skin condition affecting your pet and take immediate steps to relieve your pet’s pain.
Relieve Your Pet's Itching with a Veterinary Dermatology Appointment
Your dog or cat can suffer from the same seasonal allergies that affect humans. Allergic dermatitis is one of the most common conditions affecting pets. Pollen, mold, ragweed and dust mites may trigger pet allergies. Rather than experiencing watery eyes or congestion, however, pets suffer from itchy skin. Repeated biting and scratching creates irritated, moist skin that is susceptible to secondary bacterial infections. Prompt treatment for pet allergies is essential to relieving a pet’s painful itching symptoms and preventing secondary skin infections or more complex dermatological problems.
Food allergies to common pet food ingredients, including beef and chicken byproducts, diary, soy, wheat and corn, also cause pets to itch or scratch their skin. In addition to itchy skin, food allergies can trigger gastrointestinal upset and ear inflammation. Pets with a food allergy may bite or scratch at their skin, frequently bite or lick their paws, and even drag their rear across the ground in an attempt to scratch it. Since pets with food allergies are often allergic to more than one food ingredient, diagnosing a food allergy can be a complicated process.
Our veterinarian has substantial experience diagnosing and treating pet allergies, both those caused by food and by environmental allergens, such as pollen. If you suspect that your pet is suffering from an allergy, schedule an appointment with Dr. Agarwal as soon as possible. Diagnostic tests or an elimination diet may be necessary to precisely identify the cause for your pet’s allergies. Once the allergen triggers are identified, Dr. Agarwal works closely with pet owners to create a custom treatment plan. Depending on the trigger, this may include a dietary change, reduced exposure to a seasonal allergy, and/or medication to manage allergy symptoms.
In addition to treating pet allergies, our veterinary dermatology team also treats common skin conditions such as mange and ringworm. Ringworm is a common bacterial infection that can affect both cats and dogs. Pets with a ringworm infection have circular lesions on their limbs and head. The skin will be flaky and some pets may even appear to be “bald.” Ringworm can easily spread to other pets, so prompt treatment is critical. Mange is caused by tiny parasites called mites; symptoms of mange include intense scratching and biting of the skin.
If your pet is itching, scratching or biting his skin, schedule an appointment with our veterinary dermatology team today!

Pet Vaccinations

Pet Vaccinations in Montclair
Immunizing your pet against deadly diseases is one of the most important steps you will ever take toward ensuring a long and happy life for your faithful companion. As long as these injections administered in a timely manner and updated as necessary, they can provide a lifetime of protection against rabies and other threats. That's why either veterinarian at Arrow Dog & Cat Hospital, Dr. Nichole Agarwal or Ayaka Ando, DVM, will be happy to provide those vaccinations through low-cost vaccine clinics or regular wellness visits.
Pet Vaccinations at Arrow Dog & Cat Hospital
An animal's immune system responds to real or perceived infections by producing antibodies, tiny proteins specifically constructed to attack and kill the invading disease strain. Unfortunately, puppies and kittens aren't born with these antibodies already in their blood, except for whatever protection they've received from their mother's body. Once the mother's antibodies are gone, the baby animal is helpless against potentially deadly diseases. Our veterinarians addresses this problem by injecting a vaccine into the animal's bloodstream. A vaccine is merely a pathogen that has been deactivated -- rendered inert so that it can't actually cause an infection. But the body still recognizes it as a threat, so it produces the appropriate antibodies against it. Now your pet is protected!
Specific pet vaccinations known as "core" vaccinations should be administered to dogs and cats beginning at the age of 6 to 8 weeks. Dogs should receive core vaccinations for rabies, canine adenovirus, canine parvovirus and canine distemper. Cats should vaccinate against rabies, feline panleukopenia, feline calicivirus and FHV1. Several rounds of vaccinations are administered early in life, followed by occasional booster shots throughout adulthood to keep the protection from fading. Depending on your pet's lifestyle, your veterinarian at Arrow Dog & Cat Hospital may also recommend other vaccinations to guard against Bordatella, Lyme disease and other threats.
Vaccination Options from Our Montclair, CA Veterinarian
Either Montclair, CA veterinarian on our team can provide pet vaccinations as routine part of veterinary wellness appointment. We will advise you as to how long the vaccines will last and when to schedule booster shots. (Ultimately, of course, it's up to you to make this critical health protection a priority by keeping those appointments.) If you plan to taking a trip with your pet, make sure your pet has been vaccinated according to the requirements of your airline or destination. Some countries, for instance, will require documented proof that your pet is vaccinated against rabies.
If we've never vaccinated your pet before, please bring any vaccination records you may have so we can determine which vaccines need to be administered. Contact Arrow Dog & Cat Hospital at (909) 946-3211 to learn more!

Cat Friendly Practice

At Arrow Dog & Cat Hospital, we're known as a veterinary hospital that's particularly in tune with cats and their owners. Many cats have dogs at home, but they do not feel comfortable with dogs they don't know. Our cat-friendly team is ready to go the extra mile to make sure your pet has the least stressful veterinarian visit possible. How do we do this? We have special techniques to avoid stress in cats such as minimal restraint and cat friendly handling for blood/urine collection. We have very comfortable exam rooms for cats where they stay most of the time for their entire visit. We also have a cat medical ward which is quiet and separate from dogs.
How Our Office Caters to Cats
Your cat's enjoyable treatment begins when you walk in the front door. We have a separate entrance for cats and their owners, completely separated from those bringing dogs and puppies. Our cat waiting room is quiet and comfortable, especially calming to cats that may already be nervous. The welcoming atmosphere allows your cat to maintain a lower blood pressure and heart rate, which can often be crucial in observation and determining health problems when we examine your pet. From the very first step, we work to keep your cat as calm and comfortable as possible.
Our veterinarian team is especially interested in treating cats.Dr. Nichole Agarwal is a California native who often jokes that she was "raised by cats" with a doctorate in veterinary medicine, and comes from an extended family of cat lovers. She naturally gravitates toward caring for cats, and is concerned with making sure your cat has the best care possible.
We're not afraid to use unusual techniques to make sure your cat is taken care of. We'll examine your cat in our veterinary tech's laps if it isn't comfortable on the exam table, or we can use the exam room chair instead, if it makes your cat happier. Most cats object to having their temperature taken, so we only do that if it's medically necessary. Some pets only feel safe in enclosed places and don't like being out in the open of an exam room if they're nervous. We've even been known to allow a cat to hide in a coat sleeve if it makes the cat calmer and more accepting of treatment.
Grooming is an important part of your cat's annual wellness exam, and we're especially sensitive to cats' feelings about their paws. We're patient and gentle, taking our time to make sure claws are clipped correctly without upsetting your cat. We never hold your cat by the scruff of the neck, because this gives cats an uncomfortable sense of loss of control. Instead, we gently guide their body into the most comfortable position possible for all examinations and treatment.
