The vets at Lake Norman Animal Hospital provide soft tissue surgery services for cats and dogs in the Mooresville area.
Soft Tissue Surgery is a term that encompasses most of the surgical procedures that do not fall under the remit of Orthopaedic Surgery.
Soft tissue surgery addresses conditions the ear, nose and throat, and also includes hepatic, gastrointestinal, cardiothoracic, urogenital, skin reconstructive and oncological surgeries.
We know that surgery can be stressful, and we are devoted to providing a reassuring and compassionate experience for you and your furry friend.
We focus on open communication in each step of the soft tissue surgery process, so you know exactly what to expect.
For non-emergency soft tissue surgery, your vet will discuss the procedure in detail with you beforehand, including the results of any diagnostic tests. For emergency surgery, we will begin treatment as soon as possible.
Your pet may need to spend the night at our hospital before the surgical procedure so we can complete diagnostic blood work, and your pet can become acclimated to the environment.
Our vets practice up-to-date surgical procedures using sterile tools and strict surgical protocols. Each surgery we perform includes continuous electronic patient monitoring and pain management provided by a dedicated nurse.
Your pet may also spend a night or two with us following the procedure so our vet team can monitor them for any symptoms of complications, and provide adequate pain management.
When it's time for your pet to go home, your vet will review post operative care instructions with you. This includes pain management, supporting your pet during the healing process, and rehabilitation.
During your pet's recovery, our team will be available and more than happy to provide you with any advice you might need, and to answer any questions you have about your pet's care.
