At Pavilion Crossing Animal Hospital & Grooming, we have a powerful combination of capabilities to keep our clients’ dogs and cats in Riverview, Florida, happy and healthy. Our veterinarian, Dr. Keshava Eega, has acquired considerable expertise in soft tissue surgery procedures. Additionally, Dr. Eega leans into an array of onsite diagnostic technologies.
With an accurate diagnosis, he can recommend the proper treatment and surgical technique (as appropriate) to resolve the underlying cause of your pet’s distressing symptoms effectively and promptly. Some of these procedures may be recommended as a preventive measure to ensure your pet stays healthy. Notably, spaying and neutering are the most common soft tissue surgical procedures. They not only help to control the pet population but also minimize the risk factors for certain cancers.
Soft tissue surgeries
This term, “soft tissue,” refers to the organs, muscles, blood and lymph vessels, tendons, ligaments, and other “non-bony” structures. As you might imagine, it represents one of the most common categories of surgical procedures performed by veterinarians like Dr. Eega. Due to the expansive nature of “soft tissues,” conditions that may be treated with surgery run the gamut. They include:
- Benign masses or tumors that may affect mobility and other functions
- Malignant or cancerous masses or tumors to prevent further spread
- Foreign bodies that need to be removed to treat blockages caused by the ingestion of objects such as socks, hair bands, thread, and bones
- Bladder stones
- Hernia (repair)
- Biopsy, or the removal of a sample of tissue for further evaluation
- Obstructive airway syndrome to improve breathing among pugs, English and French bulldogs, and other brachycephalic dog breeds
Of course, we are also here for you if your dog or cat needs oral, eye, orthopedic, or other types of surgeries and therapies. We offer comprehensive therapeutic and diagnostic services. Dr. Eega may use blood work, chemistry profiles, endocrine testing, electrolyte analysis, and specimen (urine, stool) evaluation to determine the right steps forward for your pet. Our patients and their parents benefit from the specialty expertise of a board-certified radiologist in the digital imaging review. We also provide an economical and painless alternative to CT scans and MRIs: ultrasound (sonogram).
Last but certainly not least, we advise on every stage of pre-treatment, after-care, and follow-up to support your pet’s fastest, most predictable, and comfortable healing and recovery.
