Soft Tissue Surgery

Soft tissue surgery represents the vast majority of surgeries performed at Amherst Veterinary Hospital. Probably the most common soft tissue surgery performed at our clinic is the removal of masses or ‘lumps’ on animals. Most of these masses or ‘lumps’ are benign (non-harmful); however, occasionally they are malignant and require further treatment. Early removal and accurate diagnosis of a ‘lump’ is necessary to improve the outcome in your pet if the mass is malignant.

Other examples of soft tissue surgeries involve the eye and its surrounding structures, ear canals, anatomical defects such as skin folds as well as a range of abdominal/intestinal and urogenital surgeries. Lacerations, wounds and abcesses are also common in pets and suturing will reduce the chance of infection, improve healing time and reduce scarring.
