Soft Tissue Surgery
Soft tissue surgery is surgery that doesn’t involve the bones. Forms of soft tissue surgery include:
- Lump removal
- Wound stitch-ups
- Abdominal exploration
- Removal of foreign objects
This is only a small list of soft tissue surgical procedures that we perform at our animal hospital.
Our animal hospitals are equipped to treat animals for broken bones, bone cancer, amputations, fractures, ligament repairs and spinal surgery.
We can assess your pet to determine a suitable course of action and, in more serious cases, we may refer you to a specialist orthopaedic surgeon.
Did you know more than 80% of dogs and 70% of cats develop a form of periodontal disease by the age of 3 years?
To help combat dental disease, feed your pet raw bones, teeth cleaning biscuits and brush their teeth with our special toothbrushes and toothpaste.
Don’t leave your pet vulnerable to gum disease and dental conditions. Common symptoms of gum disease include:
- Bad breath
- Gum inflammation
- Broken teeth
- Difficulty chewing hard food
- Reluctance to eat
We recommend annual dental check-ups and ongoing dental care for your pet at Blue & White Veterinary Clinic.
If your pet has eaten something they shouldn’t have, or is experiencing tenderness in their chest or abdomen, an x-ray can show us obstructions in the body, presence of tumours, size and shape of the organs and more. We also use radiography to take dental x-rays.
Radiographs help us diagnose diseases in animals, particularly for conditions involving the bones, chest or abdomen.
We may need to sedate your pet so they stay still while we take the x-ray. However, our radiographer will discuss everything with you if it’s determined that an x-ray is necessary.
Ultrasounds are a painless, non-invasive procedure that provides a look inside your pet’s body. An ultrasound of your pet’s abdomen can help us diagnose a range of conditions including but not limited to:
- Sudden weight loss
- Refusal to eat
- Abdominal fluid
- Internal abnormality
- Vomiting or diarrhoea
An ultrasound can help us determine if your pet requires surgery, a biopsy, blood tests and it provides us with vital information prior to a surgical procedure.
