We perform all surgeries on our patients as if they were our own. It is also very important to us that no animal goes home after surgery without pain control medication. Dogs and cats feel pain the same way we do, so using appropriate pain control measures provides the best care possible for them. Feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss how we may be able to help your pet.
What type of surgeries do you offer?
We perform all routine reproductive procedures (spaying and neutering) as well as most of the non-routine surgical procedures that arise throughout a patient's life. In some instances, an animal may require a complicated surgical procedure beyond the ability of our veterinary surgeons. In these cases, we refer our clients to a veterinary surgical specialist facility so they can receive the highest standard of care.
What are soft tissue surgeries?
Soft tissue surgeries are those not associated with bone. Probably the most common soft tissue surgery performed on cats and dogs is the removal of masses or lumps. Most of these masses, once removed and tested, are found to be benign (non-harmful). Sometimes, they are more serious. Early removal or accurate diagnosis of a lump is necessary to improve the outcome in your pet if the mass is cancerous.
Another common type of soft tissue is the removal of foreign objects eaten by cats or dogs. This surgery may involve repairing severely compromised pieces of the gastrointestinal tract. The urinary system is an area where we commonly have to perform surgery. Stones can develop in the bladder of pets, and surgical removal is extremely important in these cases.
