Soft Tissue Surgery
Soft tissue surgeries are procedures that treat any body part outside of those that orthopedic, cardiac, or neurologic surgery treats. This type of procedure focuses on the internal organs, muscles, skin, tendons, and other connective tissues.
Common soft tissue procedures include:
- Gastrointestinal, bladder, or liver surgery
- Cancerous or non-cancerous mass removal
- Reconstructive surgery
Dr. Mansfield and our team minimize your pet’s discomfort with effective and safe sedation during surgery. Health issues that require surgical treatment can be due to a congenital condition, trauma, disease, or age. No matter why your pet requires surgery, we provide individualized care to maximize their recovery. We also schedule follow-up appointments and share instructions to support your pet’s healing.
Spaying and Neutering for Cats and Dogs in Central Passaic County
Both procedures refer to a pet’s surgical sterilization. To spay a female, your veterinarian removes the uterus and ovaries, while neutering a male involves removing the testicles. Spaying and neutering young cats and dogs not only have a positive impact on their health, but it can also improve their behavior and make life at home easier for both humans and pets.
Our team can help you determine what age is appropriate for your pet to get the surgery. Many animal shelters routinely spay and neuter puppies and kittens before putting them up for adoption. If your pet is already an adult, you can still choose to have them undergo the procedures to yield its benefits.
Benefits of spaying and neutering include:
- Significantly reduces the risk of mammary cancer in females
- Eliminates the risk of uterine infection
- Limits pet overpopulation
- Prevents heat cycles in females
- Decreases inappropriate behaviors in males such as aggression and urinary marking
Spaying and neutering are safe and common veterinary surgeries. Recovery is usually quick and easy. We recommend that you provide your pet with a quiet space at your home, away from other animals if possible. Moderate their activity so they don’t jump or run after the procedure. This timeframe is generally two weeks long. Keeping them from licking the surgery site is important for proper recovery. We always provide post-operative care instructions to help you look after your pet.
If you have any concerns about these procedures, we invite you to let us know. Our staff members are here to make sure you have the necessary information and feel comfortable with your pet’s treatment.
