Reasons for Mass Removal Surgery

We offer mass removal surgery to eliminate unhealthy tissue in pets that can have harmful effects on their health. This type of surgery can involve both cancerous and non-cancerous tissue and is commonly used to remove skin tumors and tumors in the mammary glands. We are also equipped to identify and remove internal tumors.

In addition to mass removal surgery, we provide wart removal services. While it may not always be medically necessary, removing warts can improve your pet's quality of life, especially if the wart is located around the eyes, ears, or feet and affects their daily routine.

Does My Pet Need Mass Removal Surgery?

Routine vet visits are crucial in identifying potential health concerns that may require surgical intervention for mass removal. In some cases, it may be challenging to detect signs of a mass without the aid of diagnostic exams and testing. Therefore, it's important for pet owners to be vigilant and attentive to any changes in their pet's behavior, appearance, or health. Being proactive in monitoring your pet's well-being can help ensure that any potential issues are addressed promptly and with the appropriate treatment. Some signs that may indicate a health concern include:

Appearance of a new or unidentified lump or growth
Sudden loss of appetite
Reduced energy levels
Signs of pain such as whimpering or limping
A sudden change in behavior, such as increased aggression or lethargy
Difficulty breathing or swallowing
An unusual odor coming from the mouth, ears, or other areas

If you notice any of these symptoms in your pet, it's important to reach out to our office right away. Our veterinarians will conduct a comprehensive examination to diagnose the underlying issue and decide whether surgery is required to address the problem.

Our Surgery Process

At our practice, we prioritize thorough examinations to ensure that we provide the best possible care for your pet. We utilize diagnostic tools like x-rays and ultrasound to identify whether a mass is present. If we find a mass, we will discuss the situation with you and recommend observation, removal, or further tests like a biopsy based on the size and location of the mass. We will also educate you on the potential health effects and answer any of your questions to make sure you're fully confident in the treatment plan.

Once you decide to move forward with mass removal surgery, our team will review your pet's medical history and ask questions to minimize risks and promote successful treatment. In most cases, mass removal surgery is a day surgery, and your pet can return home the same day for recovery. If you visit our office later in the day, we may keep your pet overnight and perform surgery the following morning. Throughout the entire process, you can count on our team to be attentive and caring toward your pet.

Pet Surgery Aftercare

After your pet's surgery, it's crucial to ensure that they rest and avoid any risk of infection or injury during their recovery. To help you take care of your pet during this period, our team will provide you with aftercare instructions. These guidelines will help you create a safe and conducive environment for your pet's healing. We understand that you may have questions or concerns about your pet's recovery, and we encourage you to contact us with any inquiries. When helping your pet recover from surgery, there are several important steps to take to ensure a safe and comfortable healing process. Here are some tips to follow:

Prepare a Quiet Place: After surgery, your pet needs a peaceful environment to rest and recover. Crowded or noisy areas can be stressful for them and cause more harm than good. It's important to create a safe and quiet space for them where they can heal comfortably. Since healing can cause itching, it's necessary to keep your pet from interfering with the surgery site. Pets often lick, scratch or bite around the area, which may lead to reopening of the wound or infection. Limiting their movement or crating them may be necessary.

Protect the Surgery Site: Pets tend to itch around the surgery site as they heal, causing them to lick, bite or scratch. To prevent reopening the wound or exposing it to bacteria, limit their movement by using an e-collar while stitches are in.

Keep Other Pets Away: If you have more than one pet at home, keep your recovering pet separate from the others for the first few days, even if they usually get along. Recovering pets can feel vulnerable and may not respond well to other pets, which can lead to conflicts. Additionally, other pets may accidentally cause injury while playing.

The duration of the recovery period after a mass removal surgery is determined by several factors, such as the size and location of the mass, as well as the pet's age, size, and general health condition. During your pet's examination, our veterinarian will provide an approximate time for the recovery process and any warning signs to be aware of. To ensure that your pet is healing correctly, we may schedule a follow-up visit.
