Soft Tissue Surgeries

Pet soft tissue surgeries is a broad term. It refers to various surgical procedures involving the internal organs, body wall, skin, and other soft tissues.

Soft Tissue Surgeries

At The Melrose Vet in Los Angeles, CA, we understand that it's normal to feel anxious or scared when your pet undergoes surgery. With us, your furry friend is in the good hands of well-trained surgeons. Below are some of the soft tissue procedures we perform to help ensure pet wellness.

Spay and Neuter Surgeries

Spaying and neutering are some of the most common soft tissue surgeries. They involve removing the pet's reproductive organs (ovaries or testicles) to prevent your pet from having litters. These procedures can come with health and behavioral benefits as well.

Lump and Mass Removal

Another soft tissue surgery performed at our animal hospital is tumor removal. Generally, lumps and masses develop within soft tissues, such as the skin, fat, or internal organs. The procedure helps to remove lumps or growths from the body and prevent complications.

Foreign Body Removal Surgery

Pets can accidentally ingest items that block their gastrointestinal tracts. These might include thread, socks, bones, and toys. In such cases, a veterinarian near you may be necessary to preserve your pet’s health and remove the foreign bodies.

Pet Surgery Aftercare

After a veterinary soft tissue surgery, your pet might need some time at the animal hospital. Also, your cat or dog will require special pet care at home. Since every medical procedure and pet is different, our team will brief you on the surgery details and post-operative care necessary.

However, here are a few common post-operative care tips you can expect:

●          Ensure the pet gets enough rest.

●          Confine your cat or dog to prevent too much activity.

●          Monitor the surgical wound.
