Soft Tissue Surgery

Blackstone Animal Hospital performs many types of soft tissue surgeries at our clinic. Soft tissue surgeries are those that are not associated with bone. These surgeries can provide many benefits to pets.

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.

Surgery can also help resolve or greatly improve several problems related to the eyes, such as “cherry” eyes, or  third eye lid issues. Surgical intervention improves comfort in these pets  and enhances the pet’s vision in the long term.
