Soft Tissue Surgery

Soft Tissue Surgery at Northern Beaches Vet
The highly-skilled veterinarians at Northern Beaches Veterinary Clinic are experienced in all forms of soft tissue surgery and are committed to getting the best outcome for your pet’s health.

What is soft tissue surgery?

The body’s soft tissues are those parts not associated with the nervous (e.g. brain) and musculoskeletal (bone) systems. Common soft tissue surgical procedures performed by our expert team include pet desexing, large mass or lump removals, respiratory and chest surgery, heart surgery, liver surgery and intestinal surgery.

If your pet requires soft tissue surgery, our friendly staff will explain to you exactly what’s involved and what you’ll need to do, but here are the basics:

In the morning…
The pet will be admitted into our surgical ward in the morning. You can accompany your pet to help them settle in, and our dedicated staff will be on hand to care for your pet. We’ll do pre-anaesthetic blood work onsite in our in-house lab and usually sedate your pet a few hours before the surgery is scheduled.

During surgery
General anaesthesia will be administered by our expert surgeon, and surgery is performed under close observation from the team of experienced nursing staff. Blood pressure, breathing rate and blood oxygen levels are monitored while our expert surgeon carries out the operation. We continue to monitor the pet during the recovery stage and they will be clean, dry, warm and settled in our state-of-the-art practice.

What then?
In most cases, pets are able to return home once they are awake, walking and have their pain under control. If there are any concerns about a pet’s recovery, we may keep them overnight for observation – your pet’s health is our top priority. Once your pet has returned home, we will provide you with comprehensive post-surgery care instructions.
