Soft-tissue Surgery

Any surgery not concerning the bone is considered a soft tissue surgery. Our doctors at Alta View Animal Hospital regularly perform soft tissue surgeries on our patients to alleviate pain or prevent life threatening medical conditions. The most common type of soft tissue surgeries are spay, neuter and the removal of a lump/mass from an animal. Many of these lumps are benign (not cancerous) however early detection and removal provide the best outcome for your pet if they are malignant (cancerous).

Animals occasionally suffer lacerations from bite wounds, being struck with objects or accidentally running into branches, etc. These wounds may need surgery to close the area and prevent infection. feel free to contact one of our veterinarians if you have any questions about our surgical procedures.

Pain management is also introduce before and after surgery. Please contact our veterinarians if you have any question about surgical procedures offerd at Alta View Animal Hospital.

Spay And Neuter

Males:
Neutered cats and dogs focus their attention on their human families. On the other hand, unsterilized, unsupervised males roam in search of a mate, risking injury in traffic and in fights with other males. They mark territory by spraying strong-smelling urine on surfaces. Indoors, male dogs may embarrass you by mounting furniture and human legs when stimulated. Dont confuse aggressiveness with protectiveness; a neutered dog protects his home and family just as well as an unneutered dog, and many aggression problems can be avoided by early neutering.

Females:

While their cycles vary greatly, most female cats exhibit the following signs when in heat. For four or five days, every three weeks during breeding season, they yowl and urinate more frequently sometimes all over the houseadvertising for mates. Often, they attract unneutered males who spray urine around the females homes. Female dogs also attract males from great distances. Female dogs generally have a bloody discharge for about a week, and can conceive for another week or so.
