Our doctors perform many types of soft tissue surgeries at our clinic. Ken-Ton Animal Clinic is equipped with state of the art surgical equipment to safely perform surgical procedures. Soft tissue surgery is simply any surgery not related to bones or joints. It ranges from routine elective procedures such as spays and neuters to much more complicated abdominal surgeries such as foreign body removal. Our clinic is also equipped to perform cystotomies and exploratory surgery.
Probably the most common soft tissue surgery performed on pets is the removal of masses, or lumps. Most of these masses, once removed and tested, are found to be benign (nonharmful); however, occasionally they are more serious. Early removal and accurate diagnosis of a lump is necessary to improve the outcome in your pet if the mass is cancerous. We recommend a physical and complete workup if your pet is over the age of 5 years prior to any surgical service being performed.
