Soft Tissue Surgery

Much like humans, pets can be affected by several different painful sicknesses that may warrant surgery as treatment. Dogs and cats of certain breeds may be more susceptible to ailments and conditions that require surgery at some point during their lifetime.

Whether the problem with your pet is congenital, traumatic, or age-related, it’s prudent to seek affordable vet services from a reputable vet. Veterinary soft tissue surgery includes procedures relating to the internal organs, skin, and muscles. Contact our experienced veterinary team at Hodges Animal Hospital serving Jacksonville, FL. Our dedicated staff is ready to treat your beloved pet suffering from soft tissue injury throughout the healing process.

Types of Soft Tissue Surgery

Soft tissue surgery encompasses a wide range of procedures involving internal organs, masses or tumors, the body wall, hernias, or correction of defects. At Hodges Animal Hospital in Jacksonville, FL, we undertake all types of soft tissue surgery, ranging from minimally invasive procedures like simple mass removals to complicated surgical reconstructions. Depending on the type of surgery being provided, the treatment process can vary. Common soft tissue surgeries include:

Abdominal and Gastrointestinal Surgery

Versatile conditions in the liver, spleen, adrenal glands, and other internal organs are areas of focus for gastrointestinal surgery. Occasionally, pets will first undergo diagnostics like ultrasound, radiographs, or endoscopy for an initial check-up.

Cardiothoracic (Heart and Lungs)

Several prevailing conditions such as trauma, cancer, or pathology require surgery within the chest. These are typically planned elective surgery, but sometimes occasional problems arise requiring emergency surgery.

Reconstructive Surgery

Every pet is susceptible to lacerations, tumors, or bite wounds that can lead to serious health problems if left untreated. Our qualified surgeons will employ vacuum-assisted wound closure, calcium alginate, and silver-impregnated dressings to undertake this type of surgery.

Why Would My Pet Need Surgery?

Common reasons why pets need professional tissues surgery is to remove lumps or growths from their bodies. The other prevailing conditions that may warrant surgery are gastrointestinal complications, emergency repair of a muscle wound or skin, blockages or perforations, cyst drainage, or abscess.
