Our veterinarians’ expertise and our practice’s fully-equipped operating theatre allow us to perform the majority of soft tissue surgical procedures that your pet may require. Soft tissue surgery encompasses any surgery that is not related to bones. It includes procedures such as desexing, exploratory laparotomies, caesareans, lump removals, biopsies, wound stitch-ups and removal of intestinal foreign bodies – the list goes on.
One common soft tissue surgery is the removal of lumps. Once they have been removed, we recommend sending them to our external laboratory for analysis.
Although most lumps are benign (not harmful), a minority are more serious (malignant). In the case of malignant (cancerous) tumours, early removal and an accurate diagnosis is very important to maximise the chances of a good outcome.
If you find a lump or bump on your pet please make an appointment to visit one of our veterinarians to discuss any surgery your pet may require.
