Soft Tissue Surgery

Surgery on eyes, ears, and other soft tissue areas.

At Indian Valley Animal Hospital, our veterinarians have experience performing a number of soft tissue surgeries. If a pet requires a specialty or invasive surgery, our doctors will refer the client to the appropriate area specialist at their specialty hospital.

Our soft tissue surgeries include:

  • Aural Hematoma
  • Laceration Repair
  • Mass/Tumor Removal
  • Opthalmic
    • Entropion
    • Enucleation
  • Urogenital
    • Cystotomy
    • Pyometra
  • Gastrointestinal
    • Enterotomy / Gastrotomy 
    • Foreign Body
    • Gastric Dilation / Gastropexy 
    • Hernia
    • Splenectomy

As always, your pet's safety remains our top priority which is why we utilize advanced anesthetic and surgical techniques.

Pets undergoing surgery receive:

  • Pre-anesthetic blood work
  • Anesthesia
  • Experienced monitoring support
  • IV catheter placement
  • Pain medication

Following surgery, your pet will be kept comfortable and monitored while the effects of anesthesia wear off. Wanting to rest for the remainder of the day is normal, but if you’re concerned about your pet’s post-op behavior, please don’t hesitate to call us at (215) 723-3971. 

Before we can hospitalize your pet or provide them with surgical care, you’ll need to download, fill out, and sign our Anesthesia Authorization Form. You can bring a hard copy with you or fax us the form at (215) 723-8426.
