Soft tissue procedures are a wide umbrella of surgeries that are related to your pet's soft tissues. These include their skin, muscles and internal organs. Soft tissues procedures address disorders, some diseases, injuries and conditions affecting these vital parts of your pet's body.
Soft tissue surgery encompasses the majority of surgical procedures that are not in the sphere of orthopedic surgery, which deals with the musculoskeletal system.
We offer soft tissue surgical procedures for dogs and cats suffering from ear, nose and throat disorders, as well as cardiothoracic, hepatic, gastrointestinal, urogenital, skin and oncological disorders.
Our experienced, compassionate veterinarians will work with you to ensure that your pet's surgical treatment will be as comfortable and stress-free as possible for your companion and for you, too.
We'll talk you through each step of the process, including preparation and proper post-operative care, and ensure that you have all the details you need to make the right choices for your pet.
At Brodheadsville Veterinary Clinic, we offer a whole suite of soft tissue surgeries from routine, scheduled operations to urgent care operations.
Our veterinary team offers soft tissue procedures, including the following, to our Brodheadsville patients:
Prior to their surgery, we will invite you to our facility to review your pet's medical history and perform a physical examination, blood work and any other appropriate diagnostic tests.
This is to both help diagnose the nature of your pet's condition, and help determine whether they are at risk of anesthesia-related complications.
Diagnostic testing may include radiographs (x-rays), ultrasounds, and biopsies. Once the results are back, a surgery plan is made and discussed with you.
No. The consultation appointment is a pre-operative exam that your animal must undergo prior to surgery.
Once any diagnostic test results have come back from our lab, a surgery appointment can be scheduled.
Surgeries usually last between two to four hours. The duration depends on the type of surgery being performed and on your pet’s specific condition.
Many of our patients need to stay in the hospital over night after surgery so that we can monitor them as they recover from the procedure. Depending on the type of surgery that is performed and how quickly they recover after anesthesia and surgery, your pet may be able to go home on the same day.
At Brodheadsville Veterinary Clinic, we are always accepting new patients. Our veterinarians' experience and passion for animal medicine makes all the difference to your pet's care. Contact us today to schedule your pet's first appointment!
