Veterinary Soft Tissue Surgery

At Dogwood Vets, we have a highly skilled veterinary soft tissue surgery team led by Donald Sheahan, who has undergone extensive further training in order to ensure that he is qualified to undertake every case he sees. He’s joined by Eleanor Pass and Lucy Ferguson. As a team, they are committed to giving every patient they treat the quality of care they need.

Veterinary soft tissue surgery involves operating on any parts of the body that aren’t the musculoskeletal system and the central nervous system. This typically involves surgery of the neck, airways, chest, and abdomen, as well as some oncology procedures. It’s a highly varied discipline that our expert team is more than qualified to handle.

Common Soft Tissue Problems

With our expert team and our cutting edge facilities, we are able to treat such conditions as:

  • Urinary problems
  • Ear diseases
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Tumours
  • Swellings
  • Perineal ruptures

Though we are able to treat a number of conditions on a routine basis, we are often required to implement a more bespoke intervention.

Veterinary Soft Tissue Surgery – What to Expect

Every soft tissue surgery procedure starts with a consultation process. We’ll spend some time discussing your pet’s medical history whilst performing all necessary examinations, in a process that takes around 20 to 60 minutes.

Our small animal soft tissue surgery specialists will make clear recommendations as to how we should proceed, making you fully aware of all costs and risks, as well as the expected outcome.

If you’re happy for us to proceed, in most cases, the animal soft tissue surgery can commence on the very same day.
