Biopsies are small amounts of tissue taken from inside the body or inside abnormal growths to determine disease conditions or cancerous cells. In many cases, biopsies are done through fine needle aspiration, which only makes a tiny incision and sucks out a few cells from the area.

We Also Offer Splenectomies, Enterotomies, and Gastropexia.

Foreign Body Removal from Gastrointestinal System

Objects such as rawhides, toys, rocks, bones, and even socks may be ingested by pets. Veterinarians frequently must do endoscopy or surgery to remove foreign bodies from the gastrointestinal tract of pets.

Tumor Removal

Tumor development on the internal organs may require surgery to ensure proper function of the kidneys, liver, pancreas, kidneys, or intestines. These surgeries often involve a recovery period, during which you must limit activity, follow a special diet or administer medications. Your veterinarian in Etobicoke will provide detailed instructions to help recovery when you take your pet home after the procedure.
