Expert Pet Soft Tissue Surgery Services
The highly skilled veterinarians at Rea Road Animal Hospital are fully qualified to perform general soft tissue surgery. Soft tissue refers to connective tissue that supports the skeleton, including muscles, tendons, cartilage and ligaments. The term soft tissue also refers to skin, fibrous tissues, fat, nerve, and internal organs.
Problems with the soft tissues can include sprains and pulled muscles. Rest and gradual rehabilitation are often what those injuries require for your pet to feel like himself again. But sometimes, soft tissue surgery is necessary to repair wounds or to remove a tumor. Some of the surgeries that we offer include:
- Lacerations, bite wound repairs, and abscesses
- Tumor and mass removals
- Ear surgeries
- Intestine and stomach (foreign body removal)
- Urinary tract (bladder, urethra, kidney; stone removal)
- Minor eye surgeries
- Gall bladder
- Hernia repair
- Soft palate
Just as we do for any surgery, we offer pre-anesthestic blood tests and EKGs to make sure he or she is in good condition for surgery. We use the safest general anesthesia available, and monitor your pet continually to ensure his or her safety.
