Veterinary Soft Tissue and Abdominal Surgery

Animal Medical and Surgical Center performs many types of soft tissue surgeries at our animal hospital. Soft tissue surgeries are those that are not associated with bone, and these surgeries can provide many benefits to your pet.
One of the common soft tissue surgeries performed on pets is the removal of masses, or lumps. Many of these masses, once removed and tested, are found to be benign (non-harmful).

However, commonly they are more serious and found to be malignant. Early removal and accurate diagnosis of a lump is necessary to improve the outcome in your pet if the mass is cancerous. Your pet’s health and safety are important to us. We follow strict surgical protocols to ensure your pet receives the highest standard of care.
