Pet Soft Tissue Surgery

Learn more about our pet soft tissue surgery services below.

Concerned about a mass or lump on your pet?

We perform many types of soft tissue surgeries at our clinic. Soft tissue surgeries are those that are not associated with bone. These surgeries can provide many benefits to pets.

Probably the most common soft tissue surgery performed on pets is the removal of masses or lumps. Most of these masses, once removed and tested, are found to be benign (nonharmful); however, occasionally they are more serious. Early removal and accurate diagnosis of a lump are necessary to improve the outcome in your pet if the mass is cancerous.

Soft tissue surgery services we offer:

  • Lumpectomy
  • Cystotomy
  • Digit amputation (declaws or tumors)
  • Feline leg amputation
  • Gastrotomy/enterotomy
  • Gastropexy
  • Splenectomy
  • Cryptorchid (We like to have AUS done first if canine abdominal cryptorchid), feline abdominal cryptorchid doesn’t need AUS.
  • Aural hematomas
  • Feline urethral obstruction, but NOT a perineal urethrostomy (We have a surgeon that we refer to for an affordable price)
  • Enucleations
  • Cherry eye or vulvoplasty/episioplast

If you have any questions regarding any soft tissue surgical procedures, please do not hesitate to contact us, we will be more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
