You do not want to wait until your pet has an emergency to develop a relationship with your local veterinarian. Comprehensive wellness examinations, vaccinations, and ongoing care are just as essential for your cat or dog as they are for the rest of your family. Our team at Richview Animal Hospital has the experience and technology to rapidly and accurately diagnose your pet. If the best course of action involves soft tissue surgery, we are well-equipped to ensure the safety of your pet.
What Is Soft Tissue Surgery?
Soft tissue surgery refers to a variety of procedures that involve your pet’s internal organs, hernias, tumors, and other soft matter. In short, if it is not bones, joints, muscles, or nerves, it is considered soft tissue. Besides spaying and neutering, the most common reasons for soft tissue surgery are undesirable lumps or growths. Emergency repair of wounds, abscesses, or cysts are also common soft tissue surgeries.
Other issues that could require surgery include gastrointestinal distress, bile duct obstruction, hernias, ureteral stenting, and bladder stones. Our team has several years of experience dealing with these types of issues. If soft tissue surgery is recommended, our staff will talk you through all of the options and answer any questions thoroughly before letting you make the decision.
What To Expect During Your Pet’s Surgery
The success of any surgery begins before the veterinarian even begins to operate. An accurate diagnosis can involve x-rays, ultrasounds, and blood work in addition to an external examination. Richview Animal Hospital takes care of all of these procedures on-site to maximize their accuracy and efficiency.
Animal anesthesiology is in many ways more complicated than its human equivalent. It is important to have staff on call around the clock who have both the expertise and commitment needed to do everything possible to keep your pet strong and stable going into surgery. Post-operative care is designed to maximize recovery and comfort for your pet. Our staff wants you to stay informed as much as possible during each step along the way.
