Soft Tissue Surgery

Understanding Soft Tissue Surgery

Soft tissue surgery encompasses procedures involving the removal or repair of masses and hernias, as well as more complex surgeries like cystotomies, splenectomies, or abdominal exploratory procedures.

When is Soft Tissue Surgery Necessary?

There are various reasons why soft tissue surgery may be required for your pet. Some surgeries, like the removal of certain lumps, are routine or precautionary measures. Others may be necessary due to trauma. Your veterinary expert will thoroughly explain the reasons for the recommended procedure before proceeding.

The Surgical Process

During the surgery, your pet will be placed under anesthesia, and their vital signs will be closely monitored by our experienced team. The procedure will be conducted efficiently and with precision in a sterile environment. Once completed, your furry companion will be carefully closed up and prepared for the recovery process.

Post-Surgery Recovery

Recovery following soft tissue surgery varies depending on the type of procedure and the extent of tissue involvement. Even routine surgeries may require your pet to wear a protective cone to prevent them from interfering with the surgical site. Limited mobility may be necessary in some cases. It's essential to follow all post-operative care instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you observe any signs of discomfort or abnormal discharge, promptly inform your vet for further evaluation and treatment.

Ongoing Care and Follow-Up

Regular follow-up visits are crucial for monitoring your pet's progress and ensuring a smooth recovery. Your veterinarian will advise you on the frequency of these visits based on your pet's individual needs. Once your pet has fully recuperated, they can gradually resume their normal activities.

Soft tissue surgery for animals is performed by highly skilled veterinarians worldwide. At Clinton Hill Animal Clinic, our dedicated team is committed to providing compassionate care and ensuring the best possible outcome for your pet's health and well-being.
