Common Soft Tissue Procedures for Pets
Pets go through a wide range of operations, from common elective treatments like spaying or neutering to crucial life-saving procedures. In general practice hospitals, soft tissue surgeries, and some orthopedic procedures are frequently carried out. However, some soft tissue operations are complicated procedures that can only be carried out in specialized veterinary facilities. Here are the top five soft tissue operations carried out in routine veterinary clinics.
#1: Spay and neuter surgeries
#2: Foreign body removal surgery
- Clothing, especially socks
- Hair bands
- Corn cobs
- Rubber and plastic toys
Dogs are pickier about what they put in their jaws, but cats are frequently captivated by anything that resembles string, creating a linear foreign body that can be particularly dangerous since the intestines become tangled and the string can see through them.
#3: Brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome repair surgery
#4: Mass removal surgery
#5: Bladder stone removal surgery
Pets can get bladder stones relatively frequently, primarily as a result of heredity, poor food, dehydration, or urinary tract disease. For some types of stones, a prescription diet can dissolve them, but for others, surgery and extensive bladder flushing are required to avoid a urinary obstruction.
