While orthopaedic pet surgery is generally to solve mobility issues or help a pet’s recovery from road traffic or other accidents, soft tissue veterinary surgery is necessary to remediate a wide range of ailments affecting pets. These can include:
- Oncological (removal of cancerous tumours)
- Ear and throat issues (incl. blocked airways, ear canals and laryngeal paralysis)
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Urogenital (incl. urinary incontinence and prostate problems)
- Skin grafting and wound care
- Hernia surgery
Certain breeds of dogs may require special corrective surgeries for congenital conditions they suffer from, such as nasal resections for flat-faced dogs (e.g. pugs, bulldogs), skin resections to prevent infections and other issues for dogs with heavy skin folds (e.g. spaniels, basset hounds), and eyelid surgery to treat entropion.
