4 Pet Soft Tissue Operations

Numerous pets require a range of surgical procedures, from basic elective procedures like spaying or neutering to life-saving surgery. In general veterinary hospitals, soft tissue and some orthopedic surgeries are frequently performed. But some delicate soft-tissue operations call for specialized veterinary hospitals. Here are four soft-tissue procedures frequently carried out in regular veterinary practices.

#1: Surgery to remove foreign objects

Pets frequently consume substances that can obstruct their digestive tracts and result in the recovery of numerous foreign things. Items that are frequently taken from dogs and cats include:

  • Clothing, especially socks
  • Bones
  • Corn cobs
  • Rubber and plastic toys
  • Hair bands
  • Thread

While cats frequently show interest in string-like things that might seriously hurt them by becoming twisted in their intestines and cutting through them, dogs are more selective about what they chew on.

#2: Surgery for mass removal

Numerous tumors that may be benign or malignant can grow in pets. These lumps and bumps can spread quickly, develop ulcers, or appear where it is difficult to move, breathe, or eat. Masses on the skin, inside the ears, mouth, or belly can be surgically removed.

#3: Neutering and spaying procedures

Spaying and neutering are the procedures that are most regularly carried out in normal veterinary clinics. These operations, which entail the removal of reproductive organs, are performed every day. These procedures are primarily performed on pets to prevent various behavioral and health issues as well as to prevent unwanted litters and the overpopulation of shelters.

#4: Surgery to remove bladder stones

Pets frequently develop bladder stones, which can be brought on by genetics, urinary tract conditions, poor food, and dehydration. Some forms of stones can be broken down by prescription diets, but other types need to be surgically removed and thoroughly flushed out of the bladder to prevent urinary obstruction.
