Soft Tissue Surgery

We perform soft tissue surgery for a number of medical reasons. This common surgery can be used for most anything non-joint or bone related.

Overview

Soft tissue surgery is any surgery that is not joint or bone related. This can include ear, nose and throat, cardio-thoracic, hepatic, gastrointestinal, urogenital, skin reconstructive and oncological surgeries. If soft tissue surgery is recommended for your pet, we will do everything possible to keep them safe and comfortable before, during, and after the surgery.

Why would my pet need soft tissue surgery?

Veterinary soft tissue surgery is recommended for a variety of reasons. The most common soft tissue surgeries for animals are spay procedures, neuter procedures, and mass removals. More advanced soft tissue surgeries performed at Critter Care include cystotomy, abdominal exploratory surgery, and splenectomy.

When would soft tissue surgery be needed?

Soft tissue surgeries are used for a wide array of medical conditions. These include "routine" procedures such as spays and neuters, as well as mass removals, gastrointestinal obstructions, urinary tract stones, and wound management.

How do you care for my pet during surgery?

Our veterinarians adhere to the highest level of care standards for all surgical procedures. Our highly skilled doctors place the utmost emphasis on pain management to ensure your pet is safe and comfortable throughout the treatment process. All surgery patients receive thorough pre-anesthetic blood testing, constant monitoring during surgery, IV fluid support, and pain control. Patients are monitored in the hospital until it is safe for them to return home.
