Soft Tissue Repairs

Soft Tissue Repairs Performed at the Richview Animal Hospital

There are a number of reasons why people often take their pets to see us. Among the problems such as vomiting, rashes, and diarrhea, there are also issues that might require surgery for their pets. Some of the reasons why pets may require surgery include broken bones and soft tissue repairs. The team from the Richview Animal Hospital is here to make sure that everyone has access to a veterinarian in Etobicoke who can perform surgical procedures when necessary.


Examples of Soft Tissues

Soft tissues are structures throughout the body that aren't bones. Some of the most common examples of soft tissues include muscles, ligaments, and tendons. These structures are found throughout the body in almost every location. When someone injures their soft tissue, it often heals on its own; however, if the injury has caused the fibers to no longer be in contact, this healing process can no longer happen on its own. This is where the skills of a trained vet who specializes in soft tissue repairs are necessary.

How a Soft Tissue Repair is Performed

If someone has been told that their animal is going to require surgical repair, then he or she will be brought back to the operating room on the day of the surgical procedure. The animal will be rendered unconscious for the duration of the operation. This will keep the animal still and pain-free while the operation is completed. Next, the vet will open up the animal and find the location of the injury. Surgical stitching will then be used to bring the fibers back together. After the repair has been completed and the surgical site is closed and the pet will be moved to the recovery area to wake up in a comfortable environment. Typically, follow-up appointments are necessary to make sure the recovery process is proceeding as it should.
