Soft Tissue Surgery

Soft tissue surgery is any non-joint or bone-related surgery.

Why would my pet need soft tissue surgery?

Veterinary soft tissue surgery is recommended for a variety of reasons. These include "routine" procedures such as mass removals, trauma, and emergency surgery, wound management, and any medically required reconstructive procedures. The most common soft tissue surgeries for animals are hernia repairs and mass removals. More advanced soft tissue surgeries include cystotomy, abdominal exploratory surgery, and splenectomy.

Our veterinarians and registered veterinary technicians adhere to the highest level of care standards for all surgical procedures to ensure your pet is safe and comfortable throughout the treatment process.
