Mass Removal

What Causes a Mass on Your Pet?

There are many reasons your pet could develop a mass. While some masses are cancerous or precancerous, many are benign. However, that doesn't mean they won't still affect your pet's quality of life, so it's best to have them removed. Then, your pet can heal from the removal procedure and won't have to worry about the mass being a problem for daily activities. Of course, the location of the mass also matters, along with its size.

Is Mass Removal Required?

Whether you need an animal hospital to remove the mass depends on what's causing it, whether it's benign or not, where it's located, and how fast it's growing. You may also want to talk with our vet about whether there's a chance of it becoming cancerous later, or whether it might grow in ways that will put your pet at risk. It's always a good idea to have all the information you need before making a decision on your pet's health.

What Are the Risks of Pet Surgery?

Pet surgery comes with risks, just like human surgery. The biggest risks are infection at the site of the removal or problems with the anesthesia required to sedate your pet. By reaching out to an emergency vet for mass removal, you can get your questions answered and find out about the risks to your pet. Their age and other health conditions will also affect their level of risk, and you'll want to take that into consideration.
