We perform many types of soft tissue surgeries at our clinic. Soft tissue surgeries are those that are not associated with bone. These surgeries can provide many benefits to pets.
Probably the most common soft tissue surgery performed on pets is the removal of masses, or lumps. Most of these masses, once removed and tested, are found to be benign (non-harmful); however, occasionally they are more serious. Early removal and accurate diagnosis of a lump is necessary to improve the outcome in your pet if the mass is cancerous.
Surgery may be needed to remove bladder stones causing pain and damage to the urinary bladder; explore the abdominal cavity to search for and remove a foreign object trapped inside the stomach or intestines; or to clean up and suture wounds to skin and muscle damaged by traumatic injury.
